I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, Coach John Conrad, Head Coach of the North Penn Knights boys basketball team. An exciting opportunity has been developed for our prospective players at the middle school level to take part in a new feeder program under the guidance of myself and Coach Corey Lord, President/CEO of CAL Sports Academy in Hatfield, PA. Coach Lord has been active in successfully developing young athletes throughout our area for a number of years, and we are thrilled to have this opportunity to work together to strengthen the future of the North Penn Knights Basketball Program.
The feeder program is being put in place to give players the opportunity to develop a solid foundational framework of skills and basketball knowledge that will ultimately benefit them both the individual and the North Penn Boys Basketball Program moving forward. We are reaching out to players in the 7th, 8th, and 9th grades at this time to invite them to take part in the feeder program. This preparatory instruction is being designed to connect and strengthen our basketball community and to develop consistency as our student athletes progress from middle school to the high school level in the North Penn School District.
Players will be receiving position-specific, skill-specific and strength training of the highest quality to eliminate bad habits. They will be pushed to their potential as they prepare for competition at the high school level. Players will be receiving progressive individual skill development ranging from basic fundamental training to elite-level training, as well as gaining insight and familiarity with our system, plays, and specific schemes/concepts that are critical to what we do on the varsity level at North Penn.
