OUR COURTS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED. 


WE HAVE USED THESE LAST 5 MONTHS TO WORK ON WHAT WE DO. THE RESULT IS THAT WE ARE BECOMING AN AGILITY CLUB WITH LIFESKILLS21.CLUB


THIS MEANS WE WILL BE ADDING NETBALL AND HOPEFULLY SWIMMING TO THE SPORTS WE COACH. AS WELL AS ORGANISING ADVENTURES LIKE TALL SHIPS SAILING, MOUNTAINEERS ETC


BLACK LIVES MATTER - AUTISTIC LIVES MATTER

ST ALBANS LIONS AGILITY CLUB

(FORMALLY ST ALBANS LIONS BASKETBALL CLUB)

Our Agile coaches help players to be agile thinkers like elite sports players without necessarily having the technical and athletic abilities of a professional.

We use sports like basketball and netball to coach players to use their mental agility to solve puzzles. To think their way to discovering what they didn’t know they could do. To think their way to find their own “what is next”. To find ways to push the edges of what they thought they could do... regardless of their technical and athletic abilities

WHEN YOU ARE AGILE IT IS EASY TO SPOT THAT LEGENDS LIKE JORDON, FEDERER AND KOBE ETC ... ARE THE BEST OF BEST BECAUSE THEY ARE AGILE


THEY ADAPT TO FIND DIFFERENT WAYS TO PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF WHAT EVERYONE THINKS IS POSSIBLE

@ST ALBANS LIONS AGILITY CLUB

An Agile coach breaks various sports and physical activities into bite-size actions that get a bite-sized result. They then coach players to practice these bite-sized actions to build their own unplanned sequences of bite-sized actions... on their own and in agile teams. Players discover what they didn't know they could do and find their "what is next".


The change of emphasis from the “technical and athletic” to “agile thinking" often re-motivates players. It re-motivates players who have reached their technical and athletic potential. It re-motivates players whose technical and athletic potential is reducing as they grow older. It re-motivates those who gave up coached sports because they lack technical and athletic abilities. Agile coaching can also help prepare gifted young players for a long and successful professional career. Everyone can discover what they didn’t know they could do. Everyone can find their "what is next".

Players share an experience of finding different adaptations, combinations, and variations in coordinated moments of spontaneity, self expression and collective improvisation to discover what they didn’t know they could do

 
Happy Basketball Player

EVERYONE IS WELCOME


EVERYONE CAN DISCOVER SOMETHING THEY DIDN'T KNOW THEY COULD DO

ALL AGES, ALL ABILITIES (FROM BEGINNER TO PRO), ALL WAYS OF THINKING AND LEARNING


EVERYONE

PLAYERS JUST NEED TO ASK THEMSELVES... "WHAT IS NEXT"

WHERE WE BASKETBALL

Agile coaches break basketball into bite-sized actions and help players to build their unplanned sequences of bite-sized actions to discover what they didn't know they could do. 


Conventional coaching breaks basketball down into habits that each deliver a single specific outcome which players practice to reduce errors. A bite-sized action creates results that trigger other bite-sized actions that enable each player to adapt to what works best for them and their teammates in a given moment of time against a given opposition.
