Summary of the 8 Things to Develop Your Coaching

PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY

  • a way of living that elevates you above your daily pressures or worries)
  • provides a foundation for your leadership/mentoring
  • build perspective beyond W’s and L’s

LEADERSHIP AND CULTURE

  • A-B-C/1-2-3
  • A-Always
  • B-Build
  • C-Culture (or Confidence)
  • 1-2-3 (priorities, can’t do everything)

SIGNATURE STYLE OF PLAY

  • what is important to you?
  • cut deeply, not broadly
  • master it

GAME KNOWLEDGE

  • athletic (coaches need to learn fundamentals of human movement)
  • technical
  • tactical
  • strategic 

TEACHING METHOD

  • I wanted to be a teacher first, not a recruiter or motivator first
  • we’re a teaching program
  • prompt, praise, leave
  • teach in 3’s (simple rules)

PRACTISE PLANNING

  • develop your curriculum (takes time)
  • reflect & evaluate (Wooden)
  • video and mike everything (didn’t realise the bad communication habits until I committed to this)

GAME COACHING

  • plan A, plan B, plan C
  • teach off the whiteboard at practise

SCOUTING

  • focus on us, not them
  • cover the important stuff
  • learn via curriculum 
  • in FIBA ball, know their BLOB’s
