Not sure how old your girls are but the key is to keep in fun and moving. We have some easy drills that you can implement in to your practice plan at http://www.y-coach.com/CD/Basketball_Drills.htm.
Hi everyone, I VERY new to coaching. I'm actually trying to help coach with another parent. Like many, I played a lot of yard ball, but nothing organized, so plays and such I dont feel comfortable teaching the kids.
there are a few things that I've noticed the girls have trouble with , which I'm sure are common, but I'd like to help them with. Mostly, teach them to dribble without looking down, not picking up the dribble too fast, shotting (including layups). Also drills on having the girls move their feet on defense and move around/get open on offense.
I know, thats just about anything. And a lot of that is probably just playing. But I'm guessing there are "fun" drills that could help this. I dont want them to hate the sport bc. I want them to enjoy practice, but also make the most out of it.
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
My Mike LB calls out the strong side and motion direction so D-line knows what they are doing and what the other LBers should be doing during that play, we run a 3-3-5/6-2/5-3 and a 4-4. 5th and 6th grade team but they all call out pass pass pass/ball ball ball but yes its usually me screaming reverse. In the case of zone coverage my safety will call out tight or lose depending on his position and a read of the offensive set(but i will most likely tell(yell) the S and cover guys.)
It depends on the type of athletes you have on the field, my 6-2 starts off as a 5-3 we shift our D-line strong 1 gap(Mike calls the shifts and motions)(D-Line slants strong side and if we see motion Lou and Rob linebackers slant motion side. We are bringing 8 unless TE releases) and bring the weak side LB up as a 2nd DE. Only thing that burns us is a quick I mean quick pop pass for a gain of 4 to 8 yards. But we are working on that read with our backers with a delay an read. Like coach G of BT said dont run outside thats what we are waiting for since you offensive guys love your speed game. Good Luck
