I have visited the site but I see its still a great site with lots of good stuff . This year I am back to coaching . My youngest son is in kindergarten this year and I am coaching k-1 . Been awhile since I have been with this age . I have some ideas as what i want to do with them but as always I am asking and looking for ideas to add or even some donts . I feel like I have learned from watching my oldest Blake grow up playing things that I should have done different or things I felt like kids lacked being taught . Today was our first practice . I basically get 1 1/2 hrs twice a week with these kids . Today we started with a few stationary ball drills .... Smacked the ball , a little finger tip toss above our head ,ball around our head , around our waist , around both knees , around right leg , around left leg , figure 8 . If a kid needed to roll the ball in figure 8 motion around legs I was ok with it . We will learn and we will get better . We dribble right hand with a left hand arm bar with good posture and switched to left hand dribble with right hand arm bar . Then we dribbled right hand and cross over to left in on motion and back and forth a couple times . After that we dribbled on the move . 1/4 court hand hand switched to left hand went to half court switch back right hand went to 3/4 court switch to left and finished out . We did this 3-4 times. Then I let them kinda speed walk if u can full court right hand and back left hand . We then paired up and learned 3 passes . Bounce pass , chest pass , over head pass . Next we learned a right hand lay up . Here I had them take 1 step with left foot and jump bringing right knee up and shooting for square but no focusing on making shot focusing on footwork . After that we shot a normal type 5 foot jump shot . Focusing on form and hand under ball bend knees and correct release I tried to stress shot the ball don't throw it at the rim. Last thing we learned on day one is defensive stance . Slide our feet knees bent hands out etc . We slid left and right and back peddled staying in our stance We did a little drill on baseline where we defensive slide from corner to the lane back peddled to foul line defensive slide across foul line and then sprinted to baseline and hand up to challenge shot and then defensive slide back to the other corner . We did this several times focused on keeping stance and not crossing feet always hand up on shot and finishing the drill off . This summed up our day . These our things I plan to do every practice . I am not even remotely worried about offensive stuff ,. I want to stress fundamentals ( dribbling , passing , catching , shooting form) and defense . I plan on m2m defense btw . And getting back on D and always stop the ball weather its ur man with ball or not . When I do offense I plan on a 5 out offense kinda like focusing on dribble drive or pass and cut . My thinking is I want every kid to have guard skills and be able to put the ball on the floor and go make a play and pass and catch .
