Basketball Skills & Drills, now in its third edition, is a must-have for every coach at every level.
The new third edition also comes with a special DVD loaded with demonstrations of many of the various drills, sets, concepts and more. This book is quite simply loaded with everything you need to know as a basketball coach.
Basketball Skills & Drills covers each and every fundamental — how to perform them properly, drills to execute and practice, coaching points you can use to help in teaching, and more ideas and thoughts.
Learn how to properly teach skills such as ballhandling, shooting, passing, rebounding, etc… You will also learn several team offenses and team defenses you can easily and successfully incorporate into your program.
Basketball Skills & Drills is also filled with pictures and diagrams to help you understand the concepts and drills being taught. I also found the ‘drill finder’ in the back of the book particularly useful and valuable. With this great tool, you can easily find drills from any of the chapters — fundamental being taught, specific focus of the drill, and whether it is basic, intermediate, or advanced. If you want to find something quick, you do not have to spend a lot of time searching for it!
If you do not already have this book in your library, I highly recommend it — this should be required reading for all young coaches! If you own a previous edition, you need this third edition for the DVD alone — it is a great bonus to the book and it is a phenomenal DVD!
