Mounds View Community Center Skills Groups

These skills groups take place in Mounds View, MN and are for boys and girls grades 4-9. These groups are filled with players from every side of the Twin Cities Metropolitan area and ensure maximum attention is given to all enrolled and to allow players to:

  • Establish a better vision
  • Hold themselves accountable to their goals
  • Learn new skills and concepts on a persistent and consistent basis to take their game to the next level!

Sessions are held every Monday and Thursday from May-September and players are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible, not only to put in the extra work necessary to succeed; but the right kind of work to succeed.

Ongoing enrollment and training is encouraged and ensures consistent and guaranteed access to our staff to make certain proper habits are being established and stay intact, to help players make changes to their game, to assist with revamping and revitalizing their game, or to just stay on the right track.

About Daniel Makepeace:
My name is Daniel Makepeace, I own and operate Pure Intensity Basketball, a skill development company based in the Twin Cities. I am also currently the varsity assistant coach at Robbinsdale Cooper High School for the girls basketball team. We just finished the season 29-2, winning the 3A State Championship.

I was also on staff at Eastview High School serving as assistant varsity coach for the girls basketball team for two seasons, 2013-14 and 2014-15, in which we went 61-3 and placed 1st and 2nd in the State Tournament.

We've also trained many players who have received full basketball scholarships to play in college. Some of the schools our players are currently playing at include: Marquette, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota State, Nebraska, Illinois, Colorado, Kansas State, Cornell and Yale among many others.

These skills development groups are a great opportunity to work on the basketball skills needed to be successful come winter! We dedicated a large amount of time everyday in practice to skill development at Robbinsdale Cooper and Eastview, and our combined record of 90-5 showed that! We work on the same drills, skills and teaching concepts at our MVCC Skills Groups that we did at Cooper and Eastview!

It'll be a great off-season developing the skills needed have your best season yet! Let's get going on building the foundation for a great basketball skill set!

Program Highlights:

  • Guaranteed training access during peak off-season period of May-September
  • Pure Intensity Coach at every session to ensure maximum attention
  • 2 sessions per week to maximize development and ensure sufficient repetition of skills and drills to build proper habits
  • Fast paced and intense sessions to simulate games
