Coaching youth basketball can be an extremely challenging, yet rewarding task. I have been involved with basketball since attending my first camp in 1977. I played basketball in high school and college. After graduation, I coached for 19 years at the high school level before tackling the youth level. I am now assuming the role of 1st grade youth coach.
Over the next several weeks I hope to share some useful ideas and drills that will make your season enjoyable. More importantly, I hope to share with you drills that will make your players improve while having fun.
Before worrying about Xs and Os or drills, I highly recommend reading the following 2 blogs: Inch and Miles: The Journey to Success and Eight Great Books from the PCA for Parents, Coaches, and Athletes. These two post will be helpful in developing your overall coaching philosophy.
My Town Tutors is a website that connects parents with teachers who tutor. If you are a teacher who tutors, for a limited time, you can register for using promo code: usteachers. Teachers set the hourly and keep 100% of the fees! One of our teachers made $5,000 last year tutoring.
