Impact Sportz is an Bastrop Youth Basketball based program that originally started in Chicago Illinois by Lonnie Welch and Toron Clark. Since 2000 they have been producing some of the best girls and boys athletes in Chicago. Now relocated to Bastrop Tx, they have jump-started a basketball training program locally, with the same thoughts and training strategy. They have begun building an elite staff of coaches and players and just like Chicago they are training some of the top athletes here in Bastrop Texas.
Their mission as a Texas youth basketball program is to create a fun, safe, and invigorating environment. They want to teach our youth the game of basketball, maximize their skills, and build the self-esteem of each boy and girl with whom 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. Basketball 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.
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 kids in multiple different 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.
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 basketball with proper shooting techniques takes skill, technique, and practice. We teach techniques that make it very simple.
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 kids 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 and high school programs in the Bastrop Texas Youth Basketball area.
The biggest challenge is when you take what you have learned through training and implement it and make it apart of your game. Challenging yourself to become a better player can be a daunting task,that why we focus on building these skills to make you a complete player.
