Effective Basketball Coaching

Sports hold a unique place in the American culture. Few things have the same impact in so many areas of our lives. Good days and bad days are often defined by how our teams did. Not just for the players, but for the fans as well.

So few things can teach as much about life as sports can. Teamwork, handling success, dealing with disappointment, standing up to the pressure of constant scrutiny, punctuality, leadership, etc. are all aspects that are developed through playing organized sports. For that reason, few professions offer more diversity or uniqueness than coaching.

Coaches are more than people on the sideline calling plays for their teams. The responsibilities and techniques of coaching basketball require the coach to be a motivator, teacher, substitute parent, confidant, tutor, policeman among other things.  But above all…. a coach is a leader!!

 Getting the ball on the baseline presents a unique scoring opportunity if you have the footwork to take advantage of the defender

 Coming from the baseline or the short corner, a quick front pivot and a power dribble gives you a scoring opportunity.

Using agility hurdles is a great way to improve your ball handling. A crossover dribble is great for creating space for your jump shot. Dribbling under an agility hurdle allows the shooter to get lower, quicker and become a better ball handler.
