One of the best ways to learn the game of basketball and to become a better basketball coach is to listen and learn from other great basketball coaches who have already been through all of the struggles. This will allow you as a coach to be able to learn from their successes and failures.
Hopefully this will save you from some potential personal coaching failures in your basketball coaching career. If you only choose to learn from personal experience and not from other coaches then you will usually have to go through a lot more struggles, and it will take a lot longer as well to be successful.
Along with hopefully preventing some failures, it will help speed up your learning curve and get you thinking about adjustments that you can come up with as a coach. You don’t always have to take another great coaches style word for word, you are able to mix and match to what you think is the best system, philosophy, etc.
A lot of coaching is being able to be flexible and adjust your system around your players. Unless you are able to recruit or sign players specifically for your style of play then you are going to have to make adjustments. So it pays to be able to see what other coaches are doing and to be able to see what has worked or hasn’t for them, and then make your own adjustments.
This section is designed to help coaches and players of all levels to learn from some of the games best. So it doesn’t matter if you have just started coaching, or if you have been doing it for the last 20 years. You want to always be learning as a coach, because you are never going to get to the point where you know everything.
