Coaching Tip - February / March, 2004

Leave a Coaching Legacy

Know yourself, develop your unique talents and serve others has been my personal and professional mantra for some time.  To use this means:

One way to ensure your coaching legacy or specific imprint upon your players is to develop a special basketball passion.  Mine has been fundamental skills - the players and teams I have coached are acutely aware (sometimes painfully so) of my positive/insistence upon basketball basics.  They have literally heard me say "Capture and Chin the ball" hundreds, sometimes thousands of times during a career.  What you teach and emphasize is what you get in coaching.  Players notice/learn your emphasis/passion.  Enthusiasm is caught and taught.  Identify, develop and show your basketball passion.  Your players will learn to remember and appreciate it.  And it will become part of your coaching legacy; passed on and remembered by your players, hopefully as a positive factor in your lifelong relationships.
