"Players in marked lane spaces will be able to move into the lane when the ball is released by the free-throw shooter beginning with the 2014-15 high school basketball season. Previously, players could not release until the ball touched the ring or backboard or until the free throw ended."
Simsbury High School Varsity Basketball Head Coach Sam Zullo is offering basketball skills sessions (for boys only)
The first session will be a skill assessment. Sam will provide a written report of things to work on in order to improve for the next level of play. Parents/players can help decide how workouts are tailored based on which skill they want to improve.
All drills and skills worked on in sessions will be made available online for players to take back and work on their own time as well.
Sessions will be hald at local outdoor courts
The cost is $20 per 75 minute workout session...can sign up for as many/as few as you would like
Sessions can be scheduled by contacting Sam Zullo at (518) 848-5017 or email at
Sessions may include up to but never more than 4 players (multiple players in a workout can be very beneficial to players)
