This book is very insightful if you are a beginning coach. It walks you through just about every step that you need to take as a coach. It discusses practice, parent interaction, offense, defense, pep talks, and much more. Like I mentioned if you are a beginning coach this book with be great.If you have been a coach for more than a couple of years you probably won't learn much from this book. This book covers the very basics, and will not teach you anything fresh if you have a couple years experience.
Lots of amazing hints and ideas for how to be the best children basketball coach. From the very beginning of getting the job and contacting the parents to how to run a practice. The most necessary piece of information in it though is the emphasis on not having children standing in lines in practice. So a lot of youth coaches waste their time and the kid's time by not having efficient and challenging practices that ensure the children IMPROVE their skills. Read this book to support ensure that you're the coach that makes a positive impact on your young players.
So the head of the basketball league required 2 more volunteers and not one person stood up. Over the summer I coached the small children which was basically just making sure they all had a possibility to play. So I figured I'd give it a try. I was really nervous, these are 6th, 7th and 8th graders, mostly boys and most have been playing for years. I don't even watch NBA, so I'm almost completely clueless in basketball. I've been watching my boys play for a couple of years so I've picked up a few things, just not enough. So I found this book and it saved me! This book serves those just like me, people who know next to nothing, and it's broken down into simple, simple to understand language. I've been a coach for about 5 weeks now, and my squad is thriving. They are confident in me, they respect my decisions, and have no issues coming to me for anything. Having a amazing group of children help, but this book does too. It's given me the knowledge and the lingo I need to be a amazing coach. It's an simple read, I read it in 2 days. Then I went back to take some notes from passages I saved. I would absolutely recommend this book to someone who has never coached and doesn't know much about basketball.
This surprisingly well written tutorial to Basketball is all you need if you wish to learn the game, learn to appreciate watching the game, or have a desire to coach at the highschool level. An perfect review of the rules and tactic of Basketball, with useful tips about what to watch for in a typical e dummy series continues to surprise me with how well written the books are and how complete they are, and this one is no exception.
Digger does a amazing job educating you to basketball basics and history. Worth your time if you wish to understand the android game member, this is an older book so some of the refences to 'current' players is somewhat dated. If you can obtain past that one thing you will search this a amazing and educational read.
I bought this as a bonus for my granddaughter’s high school coach. Maybe now he can come upwith a second (and hopefully more effective) offensive play, a simpler play for throw-in under the goal, and the importance of rebounding and defense, basically all of which are seriously lacking.
This book is Basketball *For Dummies*. It's supposed to be an introduction to the game. It says right on the front, "Learn: the rules and regulations of the game."But it's terribly organized, with large gaps in knowledge. For example, Chapter 3 "The Rules"... makes NO mention of dribbling, except to say it wasn't in the original rules of basketball (p. 31). That's a beautiful huge omission, don't you think, for a "dummy" trying to learn about basketball for the first time? It talks about the names of different lines, time-outs, etc., but it doesn't actually describe how the android game is *played* at all. Then Chapter 4 jumps to "Statistics" (way too early for a beginner, we haven't even learned how to play the android game yet!).But even worse, there are just so a lot of sentences that create no sense for a beginner. Chapter 5, introducing locations to shoot from, says "Elbow is a term for the two spots on the floor that tag the intersection of the foul line extended and the lane line." (p77). What?! What is the foul line? What is the foul line extended? What is the lane line? Are there 2? The court diagram on page 32 lists *none* of those, and neither does the text. I thought this was supposed to be for dummies... I am still totally clueless what this mythical spot called an "elbow" apter 6 on Offense talks about the positions... but just has short separate sections on each one. There's no diagram, no introduction of how they work together. A beginner is left with no insight e author talks about "the screen" on p94, saying "a screen frees up a dribbler or an intended receiver. To set a screen, an offensive player without the ball uses her body as a shield to ward off a defender who tries to follow an offensive player." But it doesn't even explain... is a "screen" a move, or a position, or something else? What is "setting" a screen, are there other things you can do with a screen? What does it *look* like -- there's no photo, illustration, description, or *anything*. I'm sure this is all totally obvious to someone who already understands, but for someone who's never heard of a "screen" in their life, this is totally unhelpful. This is supposed to be a book *for dummies*, but by this point in the book, any dummy like myself is going to be totally en you realize, the book is beautiful not good at explaining basketball at all. It's really a confused mish-mash -- some parts are only required for complete beginners, some parts assume you have lots of background knowledge, some parts seem purely for coaches, and then it's full of rather pointless side anecdotes, most of which just aren't interesting or entertaining, honestly. But all these parts are totally mixed up in the same I don't know who this book is supposed to be for. But it's not a amazing introduction "for dummies", that's for sure.
I've got a amazing amount of ideas from this book. The organization of it is the best feature, really simple to obtain to the drills you need for your squad quickly and efficiently. It's been a nice resource to support shape up weak locations of our team.
I enjoyed this book. McCormick 's ideas are not fresh but he provides perfect reasons why the android game should be taught and played this way. Being a long time coach who once believed that i required to test and control everything that happened on the court , I've come to realize that style causes only stress and burn out to both player and coach.
As in his "Fake Fundamentals" book, McCormick challenges some long-held beliefs about how coaches and players alike should approach the game. As a youth basketball coach for 11-13 year olds, I have the advantage of not having to break old habits. I urge any basketball-savvy reader to look at Blitz Basketball strategies like these children do. My children immediately got some of the simplest Blitz offense principles: 1) Play hard 2) Stay spaced apart 3) In any 5-foot race, the player who starts first always wins. Realizing those things, they saw, in McCormick's words, "You are never more begin than when you first catch the ball."I tell them that "open" in this context does not mean "clear path to the rim" or even "wide begin shot opportunity." No, it means something even better; "You have about a second to create the best decision: Shoot, Drive or Pass." A second is an eternity in youth basketball.Once they understood that immediate action led to scoring, they took more chances, created more mistakes and learned more about the Greatest Android game Ever Invented.
Packed into this concise small book is some amazing primary content for running a sports squad program. Although it could use some further edits for word errors and sentence structure, the book does give insight to a lot of amazing things that a coach should be thinking about to run a quality program. Definitely worth the short time to read through it.
My squad now plays like the 1989 Detroit Pistons. Amazing on the boards. Amazing guard play. A physical presence. I would have liked more hints on how to teach my 7 year olds how to intimidate the other squad like Bill Laimbeer. Maybe throwing an occasional “accidental” elbow. But overall amazing drills and amazing book to read.
I am fresh to coaching this year (4-5 grade boys) so I required a book that would demonstrate the basics as I did not have any formal training growing up. The book is simple to read and lays out the basics from individual skill techniques to defensive and offensive sets for the squad to run. It also has a schedule list of things to run a practice so you do not have to come up with one yourself to start. I have found this book to be very helpful. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is that I was hoping that it would include more "fun drills" for the children to do (kids really like the "knock out" android game in it). Overall, worth the money..
Unbelievable!!!! It actually works!!! I was getting so upset because I'm a large large large spurs fan but don't live anywhere near san antonio so any other method to listen would cost at least $100 a year! I'm right now listening to a live spurs game! Thank you so much developer u r now my fav!!!

Best application for all the live NBA squad broadcasts. Premium sound , excellent interface , ease of use , can tag all fav squads for simple search . Also a amazing feature is a built in sleep timer. 5☆ Recommend to all live radio bball broadcast fans. Thanks devs.
I like the method the book is set up, very simple to read. The front of the book has a drill matrix which helps you easily search the drills. Other than a couple of drills, most info here is very elementary and for someone who has never coached or played. I am a small more experienced as a coach, but still found some nuggets of amazing information. I believe you will learn something by purchasing this book even if it just provides extra plays.
I coached really young children early on, but when I was tapped to coach 13 year olds, I wanted to obtain some kind of structure and understanding of the primary fundamentals and primary squad strategy. This book may not work for a highly competitive team, but then those coaches probably aren't looking for a book like this. For me, it was excellent, and I feel like the boys really learned a lot.
Amazing Book! Lessons for leaders on how to manage people, with stressful situations and make an atmosphere of success! Coach K's success is unparalleled and this book is a really amazing break down of all the lessons he's learned as well as ways to apply to a lot of various locations of life, not just Coaching!!
This tutorial will do as it says, tutorial you through the starting phases of the android game of basketball and into a put where you can understand the game. Then as you begin advancing your knowledge you'll start to pick up more info you read and apply the instructional part of this tutorial as well as the amazing coaching tip it gives. You'll see as you read this tutorial is far from bias, the wording as you will see uses her squad etc..... So this was written through someones mind that understood and is well capable of coaching and knowing the android game also. You cant argue the nor the valuable info that is shared and passed onto you through the authors coaching and love of the game. Super drills and the book will talk about and reinforce the things you witness that some coaches will miss in all sports, it's a GAME & for the KID's to LEARN! So I hope this small blurt helps you and you won't go wrong putting the few dollars out to enhance your already broad coaching spectrum or the fresh coach that is looking to learn the right method to tackle a sport like Basketball, that isn't just about showing kid's how to bang a ball off the floor and then throw a orange ball at a ring on a board! Enjoy, amazing luck and healthy seasons, you'll like this guide!
Read by Coack K himself, expalins the word, meaning and provides private examples of it. I've read some of Wooden's books as well as other inspirational books and this one ranks towards the top. I prefer the audio since I'm a slow reader and I can listen to it when I drive to work. It's almost like you are in a private interview with coach K.
Works amazing except for one issue - when I have a fried playing and my phone display turns off the feed will stop after about 30 seconds, even though when I begin my phone back up it shows it as still playing and I have to close/open the application again.
for basketball its all about speed and stamina of your team, not to forget the squad desire to excel and is will build up the physical strength and automatic coordination to inspire confidence. Hopefully enough confidence to excel and run the other squad off the court. :)
This book helped to create my first coaching experience go better than it would have without. It was definitely lined up with how I felt 3rd and 4th graders should be coached, and while I had more players than most squads it wasn’t hard to adjust things to work for us.
I've been playing basketball all my life and love the sport but coaching is completely different. Knowing what to do and knowing what to teach are two various things. This book was simple to read and is a amazing tool to obtain started with. It explains the fundamentals that the children need to know and gives a reasonable amount of drills to reinforce those skills. I use something from it in every ease read the title, it tells you everything you need to know."Coaching Youth Basketball" - This book is about the primary fundamentals to teach to new, inexperienced or even older children who have been poorly coached. It's an introduction to dribbling, passing, shooting, offense, and defense. They also touch on in-bound plays and beating a press."Only the Essential Drills, Practice Plans, Plays, and Coaching Tips" - This is a amazing thing, it's simple to read, understand and teach. It's a amazing starting point, as you and your squad advance you will need more drills, plays, etc.
This book is so well thought out and presented, i am very impressed with it's clarity and focus on squad preparation. This book really will support coaches in teaching their players how to be prepared for different situations and how to handle them. Everything from bench decorum and how to control the speed of the android game is covered in this book - really brilliant.
Let's be honest, you can choose from hundreds of thousands of basketball books (I see a collection of 154,000 just on Amazon). However, I have not found any as concise and informative as Kevin Sivil's Android game Tactics and Strategies for Basketball. As a young coach, it is simple to obtain caught up in the X's and O's of the game. Coach Sivils uses preparation as a catalyst to success. It is not the moment that counts, but the preparation it took to let your squad excellent execution in that moment. For all the variables we cannot control as coaches, Coach Sivils focuses his efforts on those variables which we can control through preparation.If you are a young coach, as myself, looking for guidance and direction, this book is a fast and efficient utilization of your time. I was able to read it in less than a week as it is well organized and straightforward. And, as coaches, do we really have time for anything else???
