Flow Developmental Building Blocks

Our developmental building blocks were carefully crafted to take a holistic approach to teaching girls how to fully integrate and engage their physical and mental skills, both as individuals and part of a team. Over time, our athletes learn about the skills and leadership necessary to be successful in the game—and through the game, in life—by teaching why as well as how, and through productive, actionable confidence-building feedback.

Flow Basketball’s highly qualified coaching staff is carefully selected and trained in our unique building blocks.
