Overview

A complete must-have guide for the new or veteran coach who is coaching basketball to children in grades 1 through 8.

A Youth Basketball Coaching Guide is written expressly for you who are coaching children in basketball. We stress how to teach children this complex game and to have fun doing it. It covers all facets of the game from how to dribble to strategies and tactics. Coaching children should be a fun experience for everyone: for you, for the parents, and most of all the children. We cover teaching attitudes and methods, keeping in mind these are children. It's a game for them and not the adults. Winning isn't everything, but learning to play well and wanting to win is. Children from the first grade through eighth grade are divided into four categories. In each category we discuss the player's needs and abilities, what they are capable of in both the physical and emotional sense and their limitations. We define the coach's role, parent's role and the player's role.
