VILLANOVA BASKETBALL STAR TO SCORE MAJOR POINTS WITH SECOND ANNUAL iBALL PRO COMBINE

NATION’S ELITE FREE AGENT PLAYERS TO COMPETE IN FRONT OF NBA, WNBA & FIBA SCOUTS

POTTSTOWN, PA, April 27, 2016 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — In the midst of “Nova Nation” frenzy, former Villanova Basketball Star Howard Brown (1995-1999) is returning to his hometown of Pottstown, PA with his full service player management, marketing and consulting International Ball Players United, LLP (iBall United) for the Second Annual iBall Pro Combine.

This innovative two-day event, which will be held June 25 and 26 from 9 AM-8 PM ET at Pottstown Senior High School (750 N. Washington St., Pottstown, PA 19464) will feature some of the nation’s top free agents as they compete in front of NBA, WNBA and FIBA scouts for the consideration of contracts at the U.S. and international professional basketball level.

iBall United is a full service player management, marketing and consulting firm focused on building professional careers. The company decided to create the iBall Pro Combine for athletes as an effective yet highly efficient tool for capturing the attention of NBA, WNBA and FIBA scouts in one controlled setting.

Howard, who was a successful player at Villanova and was even one of just a few players to break the 1,000 point mark, faced an uncertain future after graduation. That’s when he pursued a career overseas and became one of the most valuable players internationally. After 13 years playing abroad and winning two championships, two scoring titles and remains one the top 10 scorers in LEB Gold history, he decided to retire and start iBall United.

“It’s an honor and privilege to work with the young men and women who have entrusted us with the opportunity to launch, catapult, and sustain the path to growth in their careers,” said Brown. “I know what it’s like to be confident in your talent but need someone to give you a chance to show what you can do and prove yourself to the key decision-makers that can potentially offer you a contract.”

The iBall United Pro Combine

From action-packed tournament-style games and world-class drills, to intensive speed and athletic tests, iBall Pro Combine demonstrates what it takes to play at the professional level. The event is open to both male and female players. However they must be officially “invited” to attend after filling out an application online at www.iballunited.net and meeting the necessary requirements. Data for all registered players is shared internationally before, during, and after iBall Pro Combine to inform scouts on key metrics associated with professional evaluation.

These include:

▪ Athleticism.

▪ Reading Plays And Decision-Making.

▪ Levels of Contribution to A Winning Team.

▪ Attitude.

To date, several local players have been confirmed, including: Deva’nar Workman – Duquense (Reading, PA) who was a WNBA Top 50 Draftboard Candidate, Ciara Andrews – St Joseph’s, and Devontae Andrews – Temple.

Additionally, marquee players including: Tyler Deihl – ABA Rookie of the Year Finalist, Marcus Cousin – Former NBA Player and Overseas Star and Alexander Morillo – International All Star are also confirmed.

The iBall United Pro Combine and The Community

In addition to the Pro Combine, Howard believes strongly in giving back to his hometown of Pottstown, which is why the event also has a strong focus on involving the community. The iBall Healthy Families Initiative was launched in 2015 to promote health, wellness, and unity of area families and the community.

At the 2015 iBall Pro Combine, 20 businesses participated to help IBall United award more than $1,000 to local charities and 100 youth participating in the Healthy Families Basketball Clinic (HFBC). And the 16 Healthy Families initiative is already expected to more than double the gifts to the community.

The 2016 iBall Pro combine will also feature the HFBC and a new group of Pro Prospects from across the country will volunteer once again in the drills with kids and their families.

New this year, iBall will host the Inaugural United Communities Knockout Tournament. The competition is scheduled for Saturday, June 11 at Spruce Street Park, Spruce and Gay Street

Olympic Fever Drives 165% Increase in Members for London Social Sports Club

The sports club, who run leagues at over 20 venues across London, have opened 10 new leagues already in 2012 to cope with the demand of a 165% uplift in new members compared to the same period last year. At least another 20 more new leagues are expected before the end of the year.

Luke Mohr, founder and MD of Go Mommoth explains;

“In the last 6 months we’ve seen a huge increase in demand for our sports leagues across the board – when we ask new members what made them want to join there’s obviously a myriad of responses from getting fit to meeting new people but a huge number are also telling us that the increasing buzz of the Olympics has inspired them to go out and get active, rather than just heading straight to the pub when 5:30 comes.”

“The Olympic spirit has really started to grip Londoner’s”

In fact, over 65% of new members at Go Mammoth stated that living or working on the doorstep of the Olympic village had been either the main or a contributing factor in their decision to join one of the sports leagues. Mohr goes onto say;

“Our 5 A Side and London netball leagues are always popular but our less traditional sports like Dodgeball, Volleyball and Ultimate Frisbee are also experiencing significant growth – we see this as a sign that the Olympic spirit has really started to grip Londoner’s! Its great to see new members who may not have played any sport since their PE lessons at school getting involved, trying out new things and getting fit in the process.”

Go Mammoth, which, blends elements of a sports and social club is based on a concept Mohr saw working successfully in North America before founding the London club in 2010. Starting with just 4 leagues and 1 member of staff the club now operates leagues at 24 venues across London with 1000’s of members who take part in weekly leagues of indoor and outdoor sports including Football, Netball, Touch Rugby, Basketball, Dodgeball, Ultimate, Beach Volleyball and Softball.

More information about the club is available at www.gomammoth.co.uk and www.facebook.com/gomammoth, for further details, quotes or interview requests please contact John on press@gomammoth.co.uk or by phone 07809 887424.

Stat Based Fantasy Sports Finally Enters the MMA World

Finally, MMA fans can experience what fantasy NFL fans have been experiencing for years with a groundbreaking stat based fantasy game. Unlike other MMA pick em’ games, MMA Xtreme Fantasy offers the ability to choose a team of fighters for one event, which will represent different statisitical categories and have them compete in a league for large cash prizes.

Up until now, there have only been variations of fantasy MMA games where you can pick a winner and how they win. By definition though, true fantasy games that are played for cash prizes can only be based on statistical results and not by actual outcomes. MMA Xtreme Fantasy is the first fantasy MMA site to offer such leagues.

There are two main reasons why a true fantasy MMA game took so long to develop. The first one was simply stats. Until recently, there have been no official stats taken for MMA fights. However, with there being official stats for high profile fights now, the capability of true fantasy leagues is a reality.

The second reason was how different MMA is compared to most other sports that fantasy leagues are played in. Most sports have a large pool of players to choose from and a consistent season. What Xtreme Fantasy Leagues.com has done was use the basic principles of how traditional fantasy sports have been played and flipped the concepts in order to maintain the traditional style of fantasy play, but fit it into the sport of MMA.

Instead of drafting a fighter for a certain position, team owners are drafting them for a certain statistical category. This is why MMA Xtreme Fantasy can offer 10+ teams per league with only a small group of fighters to choose from. Each league also only runs for one event, cutting down the commitment time and other issues that arise from not having a set season.

Owner, Mike Sixel believes this is what the sport needs to take it to, yet another level. “Even being a huge fight fan myself”, explained Sixel, “There are always at least one or two fights that are either boring or I simply don’t know the fighters. I didn’t have any investment in those fights, but now people will have that investment and excitement because of the true fantasy MMA experience.”

Win Basketball Games By Unleashing Your True Potential

Over the past 2 decades studies to mimic Basketball Legend Michael Jordan’s ‘Natural Jumping Prowess’ has now become an Exact Science. However, marketing gurus and commission-greedy affiliates pollute the market with ineffective training programs.

The ability to do a really high vertical jump has always been one of the greatest advantages that few athletes truly enjoy in sports such as basketball, tennis, football and volleyball. Back in the day, how high one could jump was usually associated with the height of the athlete, which is only partially true. This is probably the main reason behind extremely tall athletes being favored in professional sports such as basketball, but this does not mean that shorter athletes do not stand a chance. Height will certainly affect how high you can reach, but it does not dictate how high your vertical explosion is.

This ability is innate in most athletes. Some discover it by accident, and are capable of astonishing feats, but aren’t really aware of how they do it. You could say this is natural talent. In others this ability lies dormant and needs to be ‘awakened’, and this is why we are here today.

A lot of athletes find themselves failing and giving up, and partly to blame in this is the media and false advertising. A lot of marketers and affiliates choose to promote products developed by coaches who simply aren’t experts, but are most profitable for them. Failure to deliver the results promised can lead to disheartenment on the part of dedicated athletes, thinking that they simply do not have what it takes. This ends here and now!

The guys at WinBasketball.com understand the dilemma from which far too many of the world’s devoted athletes now suffer, and have made it their mission-in-life to provide truthful, and scientifically proven methods to improve their overall competitiveness. It is of the utmost importance that athletes stay on top of their game, both physically and mentally. Wrongful marketing can not only harm the physical aspect of an athlete’s training, but can also have serious ramifications on morale, hampering an individual’s true potential, and destroying careers before they have had their chance to prove their worth!

This is why WinBasketball.com supports the men and women who have dedicated their lives to giving athletes a truly safe and effective chance to be competitive, absolutely no BS – backed by results and proven scientific methods!

The Secrets of Shooting DVD is now available for purchase and is the perfect holiday present for basketball players and coaches alike

Developed by high school basketball coach Bob Fisher, The Secrets of Shooting covers hand placement, wrist action, correct ball release, and the four proven ways to shoot a basketball. It also teaches launch speed, launch angle and how to incorporate these aspects of shooting to perfect a basketball player’s shooter’s touch.

Coach Fisher dispels the notion that one size fits all and repetition is the key to becoming a better basketball shooter. His DVD is the result of years of careful research and incorporates a studied physics approach to aiding players in developing their shooter’s touch.

“I am convinced that different player body types require a different approach to shooting a basketball effectively,” said Fisher.

This is a one of a kind DVD that clearly explains and demonstrates the techniques players need to become better and more accurate shooters. It also includes basketball tips on shooting, dribbling and passing and is perfect for both player and coach of any age or competition level.

The Secrets of Shooting “I wanted to help kids succeed. Specifically helping them to learn how they can make shots,” said Fisher. “I believe that one size does not fit all when it comes to shooting a basketball.”

Fisher’s product was years in the making and included his own attempts as a high school basketball player and then later coach to help all of his players develop an accurate shooting touch.

It takes into account that body types have changed from the tall, thin ectomorph-type of body more commonly seen on the basketball court some 30 years ago.

Fisher believes that a player’s shot is similar to a puzzle with the goal of putting together all the pieces for the puzzle to make sense. For players, if one piece of the shooting puzzle is missing, it causes the player to become inconsistent. When all the pieces are in place, basketball players become consistent shooters and learn to wear out the net.

The Secrets of Shooting was produced by CVP Productions and features easy to follow narration, by 13 year old Jacob Hays of Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader fame, as well as the demonstration of each shooting style by the Fisher Sharp Shooters, a group of local high school basketball players.

It’s available online at secretsofshooting.com. Visitors to the website can also read testimonials from players and coaches, watch a short clip of the DVD and learn more about Coach Bob and the physics of shooting.
