AND LEARNING CONCEPTS
COACHING IS TEACHING
KISS CLASSROOM (KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID)
FOUR LAWS OF LEARNING
Teach why we do particular things
Use mental pictures, analogies and stories to convey or reinforce
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
Video (college or pro games)
Positive language – “Let’s try it this way now.”
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.”
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!
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)
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
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.”
