Preparing for a new season can seem daunting. How can you get ready quickly yet effectively?

With video, that’s how.

Studies show that many people learn better visually, especially when there is someone explaining what to look for. That’s why we’re proud to offer one of the best and longest running series of basketball training videos available; the You Make The Ruling DVDs from IAABO. You’ll get more than an hour of plays with voice over and graphics that show you what to look for.
