Impact Sportz is a Youth Basketball program that originally started in Chicago Illinois by Lonnie Welch and Toron Clark. Since 2000 they have been producing some of the best girls and boys athletes in Chicago.
Now relocated to Austin Texas, they have jump started a basketball training program locally,
with the same thoughts and training strategy. They have begun building an elite staff of coaches and players and just like Chicago they are training some of the top athletes here in Austin Texas.

Here are the 6 top elements we focus on Austin youth basketball program.
Basketball Mental Toughness
Is described as having the ability to persevere through difficult circumstances and merge without losing confidence. Basketball Mental toughness is a battle between mind, body, and soul. Your mind must be in full control you must be able to think out, outwit, and out-maneuver your opponent. To perform to the best of your abilities you must be in tip top shape, and your body must be a well-oiled machine. Meaning you should be ready to accept all tasks. Your soul should be open and willing to take the tasks that are presented to you. We at IMPACT take great pride in teaching the mental aspect of the game. Our mental toughness training allows players to tap into emotional and mental resources that keep players playing at their top level.
In our Austin youth basketball program, we teach that basketball IQ is the ability to read and react to what is going on the basketball court. This is having the capacity to adjust to what is going on around a person’s surroundings. For example, Michael Jordan was considered to have one of the highest basketball IQ along with outstanding athleticism. He would and adjusts to whatever the defense was doing to him, and from an offensive standpoint, he would twist and twirl his body in different directions to score baskets. To have good basketball IQ a person must actually understand the game. A person with low IQ is someone who does not know how to adapt to a lot of the basketball situations, sometimes forcing note that shots sometimes, making a bad defense of decisions and also not knowing where they need to be on the court. We spend a lot of time making sure our player's basketball IQ goes up this is one of the important parts of the game.
Proper Shooting Techniques
Shooting a basketball can be as simple as grabbing a ball and heaving it up to the basket. If it was only that easy! But shooting a basketball with proper shooting techniques takes skill, technique, and practice. We teach techniques that make it very simple to become a great shooter almost overnight. If a player follows the techniques and tips, we teach their shooting will go through the roof very quickly. Though it might seem complicated at first, knowing the proper way to shoot a basketball will pay off down the road.
Ball handling is the focal point of basketball. Becoming a great Austin youth basketball player you must be a very good ball handler. This allows you to do many things on the court and to be a more effective player for your team. Being a great ball handler allows a coach to place a player in multiple different positions. As a coach I always look to find great ball handlers, it allows me to do many things with my offense. When your child leaves our program and goes back to their school team we make sure that they understand how to dribble a ball, and how to be effective when the ball is in their hands.
I’ve always felt offense keeps you in the game defense wins championships. Defense is the hardest part of basketball, and this is because most players prefer just to score and not actually play defense. If you look through the years and research any sport, there aren’t many teams that have become champion without playing defense. We teach the fundamentals of defending a player. We teach man-to-man, zone and full-court press. These are some of the most common defenses played by many middle and high school basketball programs. We feel that if we can instill all of these elements in our Austin Texas Youth Basketball son and daughter they will be well versed when it comes time to play for their local school team.
As everybody knows the offense is everyone’s favorite part of any sport. We want to see the ball going into the basket, the football gets into the end zone, and the baseball get hit over the fence. What all of these sports have in common is technique. When a coach evaluates a player, these are some of the things that are going through that coaches head. Can this player score, can they attack the basket, can they shot a jump shot and can they read and react offense and score in in the flow of the game? Our job as an Austin youth basketball program is to make sure that your child is prepared. They know exactly what the coach thinks so they can give that coach exactly what they want. If you know exactly what a person is expecting you can cater your skills or better yet your tryout to fit what that coach is looking for. Each year we have a large number of players leave our program and go to their school teams and make their teams. Often we are called and told the techniques that were taught made them more prepared for tryouts.
