TEACHING
AND LEARNING CONCEPTS
COACHING IS TEACHING

 

KISS CLASSROOM (KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID)

 

ATTITUDE
  1. Listening

  2. Enthusiasm

  3. Work

  4. Stance

 

LISTENING
  1. Skill

  2. Attention Span

  3. Eyes

  4. Ears

 

FOUR LAWS OF LEARNING

 

#1: EXPLANATION

  1. Teach why we do particular things

  2. Use mental pictures, analogies and stories to convey or reinforce

  3. Don’t give them too much – “Paralysis from Analysis”
    “The more you think the slower your feet get!”

 

#2: DEMONSTRATION (SHOW THEM HOW!) – Emphasis on Proper Technique

  1. Coach

  2. Player

  3. Video (college or pro games)

 

#3: CORRECTION

  1. Patience (smile)

  2. Positive language – “Let’s try it this way now.”

  3. Find something good to say, then correct – 
    “You’re too good of a player to make that mistake.”
    “I saw you do a great job last week. I know you can do better.”

  4. Antagonize & Positively Influence?  Is it possible? 

 

#4: REPETITION – REPETITION – REPETITION

*Great teachers are “Masters of Overkill!”

*Develop good basketball habits

*Chalk & Talk will not get it done

*Repetitive & Competitive Drills

*Teach and Demand!

 

 

EMPATHY

Put yourself in their position.  Observe your team:  eyes, body language.  Remember what it was like to be their age.  Each one is different. 

 

 

DEVELOP COLLECTIVE EGO
(FIST vs FINGERS)

  • US

  • WE

  • OUR FAMILY

 

Behavior Modification – Selfish Play (Fire Extinguisher)

Win and lose as a team; no one points a finger!!

Your players must love other players to be good.

Don’t violate the “FIST”!

 

 

COMMUNICATION = TRUST

  • Language and tone of voice (AVOID SARCASM!)

  • Everyone must look each other in the eye.

  • Talk to players individually.Find something good!

  • Be kind to one another.

  • Sense of humor.

 

 

FAILURE IS OK (COMPETING vs WINNING) . . . (WOUNDS TO WISDOM)

 

  • Learn from failure: Abraham Lincoln – string of failures before becoming greatest President in our nation’s history.

  • Don’t worry about making mistakes – learn from them.

  • Embrace the “process”.Control your emotions.

  • Fully understand what goes into losing.Then we can win!

  • Adversity – Discouragement – Frustration – Referees – Subs – Injury

  • Survive thunderbolts!

 

 

Modeling is very important because kids will do what you do.  Over the long haul, the team will be a reflection of the coach’s personality. 

 

Great teachers make things seem “simple”.

 

You must have a “PASSION” for teaching.  “Be positive.”

"To be GREAT and achieve YOUR own success in life, YOU must begin YOUR journey with an UNSHAKABLE confidence in YOUR own abilities. Whether others believe in YOU or not, YOU must believe in YOU!!!!! No one, I MEAN no one can make YOU feel inferior without YOUR consent......YOUR destiny will not be determined by circumstances or the opinions of others; YOUR destiny will be determined solely by YOUR own analysis of YOURSELF and what YOU believe YOU can do. GREAT people have chosen to ignore the naysayers and instead they buy into GOD'S view of them! What do you believe? Your brain is the GREATEST computer that WILL EVER BE CREATED! Use it, sharpen it, feed it with positive thoughts and create the world you want. THINK BIG!!!! AND WHEN YOU GET TIRED THINK BIGGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
