Stefan emailed me and sent his [tag]basketball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] for [tag]coaching kids basketball[/tag]. I’ve included it here for you to try with your [tag]team[/tag].
I have a “drill” that I conduct at the end of every single [tag]practice[/tag] and at the end of every single game.
It’s not a “drill” in the traditional sense, yet I consider it one of the most powerful and productive exercises that I, as a coach of 4th and 5th grade boys, can conduct.
In our team huddle at the end of practice or game, after I review the “highlights” of that practice or game, I then give my boys a “do” list, as follows:
*Do behave yourself properly for your parents
*Do well in school
*Do something nice for someone without expecting anything in return
Again, this is done in the team [tag]huddle[/tag] at the very end of every practice and game. I say the same 3 things, and it’s the very last thing I say to my boys before they leave the gym.
Falls under the category of “[tag]coach[/tag] as [tag]mentor[/tag] giving young men some tips on how they can be more successful in life.”
