We are pleased to announce that NOVA Heat AAU Basketball has partnered with Explosive Performance (EP) Sports Training and PRAXIS Basketball Training to offer leading edge training to expand our athletes' athletic abilities, strengthen their fundamental skill level and improve on-the-court awareness and performance. All three attributes, when combined together are what separate elite performers from ordinarily good basketball players.

The incorporation of elite-level training and cutting edge technologies are what separate NOVA Heat from the rest and enables us to offer an unmatched training experience to all of our athletes. All are a part of the NOVA Heat experience, at no additional cost to the families.

Good ... Better ... Best -- NOVA Heat will never let it rest -- until our Good is Better ... and Our Better is Best!

For more information, contact: David Mason, NOVA Heat Founder, Executive Director and Elite Team Head Coach:



The program will lead them into their post seasons, AAU tryouts, and showcases! It is designed to ensure players are maintaining proper technique, elusive ball-handling skills, shooting mechanics, and game awareness!

The EP session focuses on muscle recovery, flexibility, strength maintenance, and most importantly, injury prevention.
