Impact Sportz is a youth basketball program founded in Chicago in 2000 by Lonnie Welch and Toron Clark. The program has a strong track record of producing top-level girls and boys athletes in Chicago. After relocating to Austin, Texas, Impact Sportz has opened a local training focused on developing the skills and abilities of young athletes in the Austin area. The program is building a team of elite coaches and players, and is dedicated to helping some of the top kids in Austin reach their full potential on the basketball court.
Their mission in Texas is to create a fun, safe, active, and stimulating environment for ages 5-17. Their goal was running classes to teach our youth the game of basketball, maximize their skills, and build the self-esteem of each boy and girl they have contact with their basketball teams.
Here are the 6 top elements we focus on in our youth basketball program.
Basketball Mental Toughness
It is described as having the ability to persevere through difficult circumstances and merge without losing confidence. Mental toughness is a battle between mind, body, and soul. Your mind must be in full control you must be able to think out, outwit, and out-maneuver your opponent. To perform to the best of your abilities you must be in tip-top shape, and your body must be a well-oiled machine.
Proper Shooting Techniques
Shooting a jump shot can be as simple as grabbing a ball and heaving it up to the basket. If it was only that easy! But shooting a ball with proper shooting techniques takes skill, technique, and practice. We teach techniques that make it very simple.

Ball handling is the focal point of what we teach on the court. Becoming a great player you must be a very good ball handler. This allows you to do many things on the court and to be a more effective player for your team. Being a great ball-handler allows coaches to place you in multiple positions.
As a coach, I always look to find great ball handlers not just point guard but at all passions, it allows me to do many things with my offense. When your child leaves our program and goes back to their school team we make sure that they understand how to dribble a ball, and how to be effective when the ball is in their hands.
I’ve always felt offense keeps you in the game defense wins championships. The defense is one of the hardest skills in basketball, and this is because most athletes prefer just to score and not actually play defense. If you look through the years and research any sport, there aren’t many teams that have become champions without playing defense.
We teach the fundamentals of defending a player. We teach man-to-man, zone, and full-court press. These are some of the most common defenses played by many middle school basketball and high school programs.
The biggest challenge is when you take what you have learned through and implement it and make it a part of your game. Challenging yourself to become a better player can be a daunting task, that is why we focus on building these skills to make you a complete player.
