As a father of five successful basketball playing boys, Joe Niego understands the importance of properly developing players fundamentally at a young age. Laying the foundation of fundamental skills strongly outweighs the lure of distance travel opportunities for this age. Chicago LockDown Academy provides a positive, instructional, fun, competitive and safe environment for your players to grow. Foundational skills will be a constant focus along with activities to promote a love of the game! All players will participate in competitive games appropriate for each player's skill level. At this level, it is critical that players focus on getting better and developing a positive feel and love for the game.
