Here is another really good article from Coach Mac for parents and coaches of young kids who are playing basketball. Many of the tips could carry over into other sports too.
My favorites? Have kids develop a love for the game, not for all the other stuff like gear and prestige. Zip your lip if you can’t be encouraging. And more 3 on 3. I learned a lot about how to play the game of basketball in my final year of college because my coach, Mike Jarvis, had us play 3 on 3 nearly every day.
I’d love to hear what you think of Coach Mac’s list. Thanks for reading and feel free to share!
