13 hours and 53 minutes of Driving…
30 Hours of Basketball…
I know, it was supposed to say PRICELESS. It was, but it was even more outstanding! Everyone should have the opportunity to do this, to have a sabbatical type year. The unfortunate thing is that it means being out of the profession for a season, but it is definitely worth it.
This trip, and the one I made in early Fall for individual workouts, have made me a better person and basketball coach.
Thank you to all who so willingly shared their program’s with me.
I’d love to provide all of the drills, plays, ideas – but that wouldn’t be fair to everyone who was so gracious to let me in. I will share, anonymously, some of the really great and creative things I saw. As I reach back out to coaches on what they are “OK” that I share, I will put up more.
It was a tremendous week. I hope to put two more of these trips together. An Ohio / Kentucky and Mid-West trip and a New York / New Jersey / Philadelphia trip.
Also, I was present for the rules clarification and presentation. The biggest conversation is regarding the new travel rule that will basically eliminate the spin move.
Next, it’s time to start games. I will write up post game reports and scouting reports with a phenominal new product called FastScout. FastScout is a revolutionary new scouting and diagramming product. Check out a sample report created in FastScout HERE.
