Carlos Wheeler Skills Academy


The CW Skills Academy is a basketball skill development program for ages 6 and up both boys and girls.

We are located at:

Newman High School
1903 Jefferson Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70115

Players go through progressive training sessions that will improve their skills and help them develop into better basketball players. Each training session lasts 60 to 90 minutes.

This training will help players regardless of their age , skill level, or playing style, by focusing on improving fundamental basketball skills -- shooting, passing, dribbling, footwork, defense, and offensive fundamentals, are all universal to the game and stressed in detail during the program.

MENTAL aspects of sports -- we teach each athlete how to be mentally tough, more focused, and also how get an edge on the competition.

CONFIDENCE building -- we assist each athlete by training them to become a more confident player and person. Not only on the court but also in life.

CHARACTER & VALUES -- It might sound strange to learn this in basketball training, but basketball is a great tool to learn how to succeed in life. No matter what players choose in the future, these lessons will help them succeed and learn what it takes to be successful.

As you can see, the training is much more than just basketball skills. A legendary Coach, John Wooden once said, "What you are as a person is far more important than what you are as a basketball player." he is 100% right.
