Stephen Curry has made a career out of schooling other NBA players out on the court. Now, he’s set to do a whole different kind of “schooling.” Having harnessed his craft, he is going to start teaching online courses, a partnership with MasterClass. There will be videos from ball handling to workout tips.
At a basic level, Curry will instruct the fundamentals of the game. Lessons from the videos will include step-by-step ball handling, shooting techniques, proper balance, creating offense and even workout descriptions and tips. He’ll also appear in question and answer sessions, although he said the videos won’t exactly be play-by-play tutorials.
Curry’s course is expected to go live in 2018, for an enrollment fee of $90 for an individual class and $180 for a year of unlimited access to all classes offered. That said, Curry’s class is already open for pre-enrollment. MasterClass, which specializes in offering classes from experts in various fields, hosts courses from other celebrities, like Serena Williams, Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Aguilera.

“If I think about where I was when I was 13, if I had access to this type of curriculum, I would have been a much better player faster,” Curry explained in a statement with ESPN, “It took me a while to learn how to practice and do the drills the right way. I want people to see how I invest in my game, how I train, what I do in my workouts and what’s my mental approach.”
“So when the opportunity with MasterClass came about to put a class together where I can show people my unique way of playing this game, it was [A]natural fit. The goal is for everybody to get better and enjoy basketball more. I want them to push and challenge themselves, and hopefully they see the game differently [sic].”
Curry was also impressed with the final product of the videos, adding, “It came together really nicely. The visuals and the production are unbelievable. It allows me to explain all the things that I do to get better.”
