Hi. My name is Jason Curry and I'm the founding president of Big Apple Basketball. We started in 1999 and in 2003 became a not-for-profit organization in which we have a variety of programs helping youth, high school players, college players and professional players.
Essentially our goal is to try to help players improve their basketball skill development, gain college scholarships and also help players as far as just mentioning them. Using basketball as a tool to really help players as far as their athletic, academic and overall life skill development. For more information on our program, you can visit our website at www.bigapplebasketball.com. We have a Facebook page at Big Apple Basketball, we're on Instagram at Big Apple Basketball and you can also follow us on Twitter at Bigapplebball.
Myself, I have a lot of experience. I grew up here in New York City. As a player I played college basketball and I really have a firm understanding as far as what the needs are as far as players really trying to get to the next level in a variety of areas. And really what I've been able to do is take my knowledge and my pride and my passion for the game of basketball and create an organization where we really utilize the tool of basketball as far as trying to help people in a variety of ways.
We hope that these video series that we provide you with on Howcast will help you to improve your game. Whether it be ball handling, shooting, perimeter play, or low post play, we've just given you a wide variety of things that you can work on on your own to help you improve your overall skills.
