Burrall and Pat Paye have done it again. This is a thorough list of must-have skills for all players, regardless of their age. What a great resource for players, parents, coaches, and teachers. I highly recommend all of Coach Paye's books for coaches and players who are serious about basketball skill development and gaining a deeper understanding of the game. These two guys really know how to teach others to play basketball.

The perfect book for coaches of young players who want to keep practices fun yet will ensure that the players learn the skills needed to play their best! There are 160 drills and most offer variations for beginners, intermediate, and/or advanced level players. Parents will also be able to give this book to their young player(s) so that practice time at home on the driveway court can be more beneficial.
