Congratulations on putting your hand up to be a coach. This experience can be one of the most rewarding and challenging for you.
Regardless if you are a seasoned coach or a newbie, if you are open to embracing change, you can always learn something new or pick up different coaching methods that you can integrate into your current style to assist your players and take your team to the next level.
When coaching a domestic team, you have limited time with your players each week, sometimes the results might not come straight away. I strongly recommend you develop the fundamentals of each and every player first. Don’t be too concerned with developing an offensive structure, especially for teams competing in Under 12’s or younger. Try to keep things as simple as possible for your players. Don’t over-complicate things.
Basketball is the most over coached sport in the world. So let’s simplify it and make it about your players learning the fundamentals of the game in a good, positive and fun environment.
