Product description

This is an Olympic sport book that's going to be in demand. This new edition shows coaches how to prepare for games, teach skills, correct mistakes, encourage players and provide a safe playing environment. Incorporating a player-centric model which places greater emphasis on the development of players than on coaches, the book also offers key communication and teaching concepts and hands-on advice to assist coaches in all phases of player development including individual skills, team tactics and understanding and enjoyment of the game. It features more skills and includes many new photographs and diagrams to facilitate coaches' understanding of the game-like drills. It also offers dynamic and effective learning tools for players to hone their skills and deepen their understanding of the game. "Coaching Youth Basketball" equips coaches to provide a rewarding season for players as they continue to develop their skills and most importantly experience fun through this development.
