Overview

We have designed our coach training courses to make sure that our coaches will develop their athletes properly. Every basketball skill needs to be taught with the correct progression and has been customized for a player’s level of development. Skip the early fundamentals, and new athletes will develop bad habits that are almost impossible to break. Or – even worse – may get overwhelmed with the complexity of a new skill and quit.

If the coach spends too much time on the easy stuff his athletes will get bored, lose interest and lose concentration. To avoid this, our coaching road map teaches a simple skill progression from school kids to national athletes. The following are the three levels of skills that athletes need to learn and what they involve.
