NOW IS THE TIME to get your ballplayer enrolled in the Stutz Basketball Academy (SKILL TRAINING SINCE 2011) because many of my players are now playing school ball. So there are plenty of openings.  All sessions are 1-hour and are held at Hillside Christian Church 800 NE Vivion Rd KC MO 64118.

I have openings in the following areas of skill training sessions:

After School Program – Mon/Weds or Tues/Thurs at either 3:45 or 4:45, starting any time. It’s $170 for 10 sessions over 5 weeks ($17 each if you come twice a week and $100 if you attend one session a week ($20 each). If you have to miss a session, you will not lose it. Just text Bill that you can’t make it, for any reason, and we will add a new session to the end of your series. You will always get the sessions that you have paid for. Groups are for boys and girls ages 10 – 14.

Saturday Morning Sessions – 8:30 for girls, 9:30 boys, and 10:30 Co-Ed. all sessions are for ages 10 – 14. Once signed up, you will receive a text Thursday morning asking if you can make the Saturday session. If you reply yes, then on Friday afternoon you will receive a confirmation text. That text will show who is coming and the cost. If 4+ players can make it is $25 each, 3 players is $30 and 2 is $40 (if only two, then you have the option to cancel).

Sunday Afternoon High School Sessions – There are Private sessions at noon, 1pm, and 2pm. See Private Lessons below.

Private Lessons – These one-on-one sessions are 1-hour long and we use the Dr. Dish Shooting machine to help get up more shots. We can work on specific needs for your player. When you look at the calendar, if it shows “SBA-Private”, then that hour is available. If it shows SBA and a player’s name (IE SBA-Brian) then that spot is taken. Look at the openings and send Bill a text stating that you want to book a specific date and time. Bill will put that on the calendar and confirm back to you in a text. If you want to call to discuss a need or direction for a lesson, feel free to do that, as well. These sessions are $75 each.

If you have questions or if you want to sign up, call Bill Stutz at 816.803.9726.
