Lisa: Hi, Renard! This is Lisa Williams with local online visibility. How are you?
Renard: I'm great! How are you?
Lisa: I'm fine, thanks! Today's interview is with Renard Beavers, Varsity Assistant Girls basketball coach for El Camino High School in Woodland Hills and Head Basketball Coach for the Threat Basketball Girl's Tourism. We will go straight to the questions today.
When we look around, more girls than ever play basketball. What is the level of commitment with so many girls playing basketball today?
Renard: Well, I think the level of commitment is indeed growing. It's quite high. There are plenty of rec. rasta and travel, and there are plenty of schools that have teams, so it will be big. Basketball at universities has helped to make the girl more interested in playing basketball and WNBA.
Lisa: I know at the Pop Warner stage and certainly in high school, boys are very competitive and try to get a sports responsibility. Are girls as competitive at these levels?
Renard: They are not at the level of boys yet, but it's actually getting there.
Lisa: And what are you?
Renard: I think information is the key. There is so much more access to information. ESPN is bigger now. The internet is bigger now, so when you see these stories or heard of other female athletes who have got a basketball guarantee, it goes from myth to reality. It was a myth fifteen years ago, but now it's a reality. Someone you know may know someone who is a girl and got a basketball scholarship now.
Renard: Before it was unreachable or seems unobtainable just a few years back to gain strength.
Lisa: Yes, it's much more accessible now. I read it with your Threat Basketball program, the goal is to get the girls ready for high school. What do you think girls do not want to play at Varsity at high school?
Renard: I think the biggest part is Basketball IQ and Judgment, which is pretty much the same. The other was to get acquainted with the speed of the game.
Lisa: Can you implement basketball IQ?
Renard: Yes, where so many girls are playing now, it also means a lot of training. A lot of girls today can shoot, dribble, go and play defense. They know about basketball with exercises and defense and many individual aspects of the game, but the game's strategy is often overlooked. Good and bad about basketball is that you can play a basketball game and as long as everyone is running back and forth and no one is double dribbling or traveling, it seems like a successful game, but it's a lot more strategy involved in cutting, when to cut when to open, when to protect, when to protect. I think a lot of younger players are not taught in the program as much as the ability of the game.
Lisa: How do you teach IQ basketballs?
Renard: It's one of the most difficult things we teach, but what I'm trying to do is have a bit of practice as we walk through many circumstances and I explain it. There is one way. However, there is a film. Nowadays it's so easy to get movies and movies. It gives a visual tool about what they are doing right and wrong. From coach to coach, it's easy to talk about the game but when you're talking to the midfielder about basketball, you have to remember that they could not see everything so that the movie is good, and taking time to go through the stuff is good too.
Lisa: Apparently girls are not starting to work on these talks past middle school instead of elementary school and boys are working on these skills in elementary school so what do we do?
Renard: Yes, I think there are two things. It's one of those boys, too, usually starts before, but on the other hand, there's a guy with more ways to play when he's out of control. For example, in elementary schools or in the middle, there are generally more boys playing the ball at noon. Or you can go to the park and find a game and there are a lot of boys games than girls, there are not as many games. It's hard to find a game where you can go to the park and there are ten girls playing basketball.
Lisa: Good team. Of course, they could always play with the boys, but I think it's not as much at lunch and in the yard. I think it's not like the attractive girls, only girls.
Renard: There will always be some who want to play, but the proportion of girls who are dedicated basketball players to the amount of playable with boys is the ratio. There are a lot of girls who are just not getting in these games. There are lots of guys who are not really offering them too. The boys must be more open to let the girls play with them too.
Lisa: Talking about resources is now many more resources, travel and so available say ten years ago. What can girls do to improve in the off-season?
Renard: I would say another important thing to do for a girl to watch games without being a fan. Analyze games on the TV, whether it's college basketball or professional basketball. Do not just watch the ball when you watch TV. Watch the defense. Try to recognize which defenses are in progress. Try to acknowledge what the offensive team is driving. Personally watch certain players who do not have the ball and imitate what they are doing and pay attention to what they are doing right. I would say watching games with a better basketball bag. And other things they can do is exercises and skills. The best players, they go out and shoot obstacles in the yard. They do not just play when they are practicing.
Lisa: That's good. Whether it means they are out there dribbling or whatever. Develop their talents.
Renard: Yes. One about girls & # 39; basketball, if you can do something well, you get a bit far and you can work on the rest as you go, but learn to do one thing, whether it's shooting, going, dribbling or defending.
Lisa: And that leads me to my last question, what suggestions would you recommend to the parents of girls who play basketball and the girls themselves?
Renard: For parents and girls I would say asking questions. Sometimes, as a parent, it can be difficult because it's a natural factor in being a bit biased to maybe your daughter or daughter of your team, but the more you can ask questions and find out what's out there, the better as the point of view You get and honesty is the key for parents. Also support your daughter more than your daughter's coach. Some parents want a coach but sometimes they just need to support and let the children figure it out because they are just children and it takes time to learn. For the kids, try to get into situations where you are not the best in the team, do not be afraid because you can launch many players just by dedication.
Lisa: Great advice! Well Renard, thank you for your time and luck in the coming season!
Renard: Thank you very much! Thank you for taking time to identify girls and # 39; basketball!
Lisa: We look forward to focusing on local businesses and people who are important in society.
