You've just volunteered to coach your child's youth basketball team. What do you do now? How are you going to run a practice? How are you going to teach the players the fundamentals of the game? How will you make your players better? Many parents who choose to coach a youth basketball team just wing it and use the knowledge they have gained from playing many years ago. This method usually shortchanges the players, even if the parent is well meaning. Many parents won't volunteer to coach their child's team because they cringe at the thought of dealing with a group of young children. A blueprint to coaching the fundamentals is necessary to being a good youth coach and having a successful season. Even if you have limited basketball experience you now can coach your youth basketball team like a pro. Here's the secret to being a great youth coach - "Just focus on teaching the fundamentals." If you teach the kids how to dribble, pass, shoot, catch the ball, and play defense, you'll be successful. You aren't going to have to get out the coaching board and start drawing up Xs and Os on the sideline very often, because pretty much 6th grade and under, youth players will struggle with any basketball concept if they can't execute the basic fundamentals. Beginning Basketball will help you teach the fundamentals correctly and give you the blueprint to having a successful season.
