From Garner Road to the NBA

What’s it like working with future NBA stars such as John Wall and T.J. Warren as well as Charlotte Hornets rookie and Raleigh native Devonte Graham?

On this edition of “Sideline Stories” with Chuck Jones, the Sports Shop welcomed our very own Dwayne West to talk about that and more.

Easy is Bad

At GRBC, we’re not just about honing basketball skills. We’re about equipping players with knowledge and resources that extend beyond the court – empowering them to become their best possible selves.

Last week, we were honored to have Dr. D-Nice speak to players and parents about caring for their bodies. Today, we want to know… did you incorporate these tips into your week? Parents, have you been motivating your player(s) to do better? Remember…

  • An athlete’s body is only as good as the fuel. Eat as close to the tree as possible. Meaning, eat an apple instead of apple sauce or a slice of apple pie.
  • Make sleep a priority – 9 hours is a must
  • On game day, the body needs water – drink water vs Gatorade
  • Relax – step away from workouts to allow your body to recover
