1 4-8 GH McGannon

With no sports on the horizon and people unable to go to the courts and play basketball, training at home has become much more important. For Jim McGannon of Basics Basketball in Ferrysburg, the quarantine doesn’t change his training focus all that much.

“Our model doesn’t change at all really, as soon as they let us back in the gym we will do it of course,” McGannon said. “We don’t play in tournaments, for us it’s really about primary skill development. This quarantine is actually ideal for these kids to get better. We have virtual mental strength training and virtual private training, that’s one way kids can get better for sure.”
