Running your first practice as a basketball Institute can be a bit intimidating. However, it does not necessarily have to be! As long as you do a good preparation for basketball before exercise, you can do things quite easily. All you have to do is make a good schedule of what to do and how long it takes to do. So how do you make a schedule?
Making a calendar is something that becomes even more important than you do. I recommend having it written or even going in a few nights before. The hardest schedule to do this first is because you do not know your team yet and you do not know what they need to work and practice. The way to combat this is to cover all areas of the game and work on the basics that all teams must have at work. Now, we can address some particularities.
The beginning of exercise for basketball should begin with the stretching and warming of the muscles. Some coaches have this as part of the practice from the beginning, others tell players that it is part of their job and that they should warm up before exercise and be ready to do the same when the first Whistle begins. I think the scale is more appropriate for the age groups. Regarding youth practices, I think this should be part of the practice to ensure that players warm up properly. This warming could take about 15 minutes and involve stretching and running. This will cause the heartbeat and, hopefully, players can start to break the sweat. From there, a nice transition to bullet handling is generally going well.
The ball handling exercises can have a ball or two for basketball. Two examples of bullet drill dribbled two bullets at a time while standing, then dribbled two bullets as they walked up and down the yard. For any ball manipulation exercise, it is important that you stress as a coach to emphasize that the players dribble. It is important for them to equip themselves comfortably without looking at the ball. Other balls that treat the exercises include walking a basketball in one hand while catching a tennis ball in another. Personally, I liked it because I thought it was the most useful in reaction time. The trainers will throw the tennis ball to the player and they should catch it and return it to the dribble. Once this becomes easy, the player should be encouraged to make moves such as the crossroads or behind the back between the tennis balls. After about 30 minutes of treatment, you can switch to team workouts.
An example of team drilling would be the “3 Man Weave”. It is a forest, where three players run the field together and weave. A video, which explains this more precisely, is seen here. The benefits of running this drill are to improve communication while playing the game as a speed. This drilling tends to be difficult for younger teams. If your team really struggles with it, do not waste any practice that works on it. Give it some time (for example, 15 minutes) and after this time continue to your next drill. However, do not forget the drill. Come back the next day and the next day. You’d be surprised at the speed with which the players will bring him back.
From there, you can switch to more game situations include basketball. A good example would be scrimmaging. This is a great way for kids to feel good about what it is going to be during the games and the type of coaching you are going to give during the games. Trying to stay consistent with your messages to players is important to let them know what you want. When scrimmaging, do not hesitate to stop your pipe and stop the game. If a situation or a game can be used as a learning experience, it is absolutely necessary to explain that everyone understands what went wrong. It is best to do it just after it happens, as opposed to the end of the practice.
In order to end the practice, I was always happy when our trainers put the practice into practice. This would lead us to a certain situation, by 2 points with the ball and 15 seconds remaining, and we should practice what we would do if it was a real game. This drill would be made 5 against 5 and would normally be offensive and defensive after each test. Not only is it very funny, but it makes players feel comfortable with “high-pressure” shots.
Overall, an exercise plan should not be stressful
