The practice plans saved me alot of time, but more importantly, it helped me to organize practices better.  The players were impressed because most of the drills were new, and fresh. My team went undefeated (8-0) during the season, and this year, I expect to win it all.

Clear, concise, easy to follow and understand. Offered insight into breaking up the monotony of standard practices that are an easy trap to fall into.

Take it from me - I am very skeptical when it comes to purchasing online materials.

I use your site daily for finding new drills or variations for our practices. I found the ebooks very balanced, easy to understand in terms of drills, offense, defense, inbound plays, covering a vast variety of situations. An excellent place to gather detailed basketball information at an extremely fair price.

Plus they stand behind their work & word, if you don’t like it, receive your money back! Do it for the kids you teach. Even if you gain only one drill or one play it is worth the money.

Many rec coaches (like myself) are limited to the number of practice sessions and hours.
This zeroes in on what the kids need at this stage. The drills were practical, easy reading and they worked!

The illustrations are great. The instructions are well written and simple and it makes it easy to run an organized fast paced, and fun practice.
