This article is based on my knowledge and insight that I have achieved in many years of training. The emphasis is on how to train girls who are 11 to 18 years old; girls playing middle school, AAU and basketball in elementary school. I will deal with all you need to know to be a good coach, whether you are the first timer or you have worked for ten years.
First, you need to figure out your personality and the girls who train you personally. How is it working to mix them together? My advice was to keep separation from players. They can call me a coach or a gentleman. D. Kids today no longer have blind faith, there is no longer there. You must explain things to them and why you are doing something. You need to be patient and give yourself time to develop your style. Most coaches learn from their impact (previous coach they have either played for or coached). Most coaches need at least five years for the style or philosophy that needs to be developed. Remember that something good takes time!
Whether you're starting out as a new coach or reassessing how you're doing things you need to set for short-term goals. What can you achieve realistically now? Once these goals have been confirmed, you must develop steps to reach them and sell them to your group. Next, you need to establish a "feeder program." Go to your local entertainment team, Boys and Girls Club, CYO League … Participate, offer clinics, campsites … to be visible, stay active and be consistent. Once you've established a relationship, invite your children to the habits and games. Stay in touch with them.
When the season begins, reporters and junior reporters have mirrored images of your scholars. At this stage you should not worry about work and loss; emphasize the basis. Within the program you should try to keep the maximum number of kids in the program. The last children on varsity and the youngest children at JV should compete for the art scene. By choosing a team, my advice would be to keep a size without experience, unlike a size with experience of abilities that are equal. With the lowest experience, find one that the kid is good at and hold on, the idea is to try to get it hooked (build interest). You must build on the players "love" and not "like" philosophy. Great players must love the game not just like the game. Give them something to add on. With smaller players, I've found that they are much more and easier to find.
The style of the game you choose is very important. Sometimes it can be attacked by your abilities! Try to choose a style that is playful. I like to give players my freedom of violence if they pay hard on defense. This helps to sell the idea of playing defense. While I think about selling things to your players, you have to get your best players to buy in defense. This is the best model by adding Kevin Garnett to Celtics.
Get children! As a coach, I like to play at least nine children. A good team spirit idea would be to organize a day trip or community project for the team. This will help build chemistry and develop partnership.
Finally, April to November is when players get great. November to March is already great. The players must be in basketball during the summer. Get them to play AAU, download campsites, team rentals in a summerhouse (summer, fall stages), open the gym this summer for the kids. Training is satisfying, fun and exciting experience. What else can you influence the lives of many children?
