Here is an understanding about program and player development that I have gained over the years. This [tag]basketball coaching information[/tag] is useful for coaches of all ages.
It is rather easy to recognize those players who will be starters and contribute to the program, however, in the good programs that are successful year after year the coaching staff find the younger or less experienced players and develop them.
Near the end of the [tag]basketball game[/tag] or half when two starters are on the bench with foul troubles, the players who have to contribute are a few non-starters. Assistant coaches need to work with players to prepare them for those situations. Also, when injuries and illness challenge us during a season we need other players to step up.
As a [tag]basketball coach[/tag] I now spend more time with the entire team learning and repeating time and score situations, especially with substitutes on the floor. Along with this I have found that I can carefully facilitate player growth by putting the substitute in situations where they will more likely be successful rather than in a tough situation that will attack their weakness.
The team concept has become a critical component and the team has to honor every players contribution.
