Developmental Youth Basketball Organization serving Northern Triad, NC


Foothills Fever was founded in the Spring of 2013 to meet the developmental needs of prospective high school basketball players in the Northern Triad area.  The program seeks to provide quality instruction through guided team practices, individual skill development, and game competition.  Using an age-appropriate basketball curriculum, Foothills Fever emphasizes fundamental progress while incorporating small-sided games to allow players the opportunity to apply the acquired skills while learning game concepts. For players ready to play at a more competitive level, grade-based teams will be formed and teams will compete in local tournaments to further skill development. The organization stresses the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship while nourishing the competitive spirit.

Our Mission


To meet the developmental needs of prospective high school basketball players in the Northern Triad area. The program will provide quality instruction through guided team practices, individual skill development, and game competition.  





Four Stages of Skill Acquisition

1) Unskilled, Unconscious

The beginner player has not been taught the proper execution of the fundamental skills and does not even realize this. Some players have actually been playing for a few seasons and remain in this unskilled, unconscious stage.

2) Unskilled, Conscious

The next stage is when the player learns the proper fundamentals and is taught the correct execution. However, the player cannot consistently repeat the skill. For example, many young players that have been coached can tell you the basics of shooting - but they cannot shoot the ball using proper fundamentals . The player is conscious yet unskilled.

3) Skilled, Conscious

Eventually, the player not only has knowledge of the correct technique, but  can also perform the skill. During this stage, the player must think about the proper “shooting technique” in order to properly execute the skill.  Many players get stuck in this stage. This is when you have players that are unable to play on instincts and must mentally control their skill execution. The player is skilled but remains conscious.

4) Skilled, Unconscious

The final stage is to react through habit and forget. The player has mastered the skill and no longer needs the “mental” instructional manual. He does not need to think about his foot placement, hand placement, etc. – he simply catches and shoots.

Many players float in-between the 3rd and final stage. When things are good and they are thinking positively, they catch and shoot without any conscious control. However, when they miss a shot, feel fatigued, feel pressure, etc., their mind attempts to control the physical process. Once a player reaches the Skilled-Unconscious Stage, thinking actually interferes with skill execution.
