Basketball tip #1

I was speaking to a basketball coach I admire a lot, and his biggest tip for teaching the age group I’m coaching was to teach then not to all swarm around the ball.

Be if offence or defence, there is no point having 5 players around the ball, If you have the ball, there’s no one to pass to and if you are defending then you are likely leaving leaving loose players, or in the event that you get a turnover, you still have no-one to pass to.

I’m not sure how I’ll install that in to U10’s but we will give it a go once I’m happy that everyone is moving in the right direction with basics.
