      Unlike ORYA’s regular season program which builds from skill work to game-play scenarios, this program will focus exclusively on individual skill with the ball. Developing ball handling skills, offensive moves and shot mechanics will be primary goal of the program. All sessions will be led by Coach Jason Campbell.
