Best Basketball Coaching Blogs


Knowledge is power, and when it comes to coaching basketball, this absolutely the case. The best coaches are the coaches that are constantly learning the game and growing. You are never going to know everything about the game of basketball. Coach K. and Phil Jackson are still learning about the game even today. They are still investing in themselves and growing.

As a basketball coach, you can learn from your own experiences or learn from others’ experiences. It is usually a lot easier and quicker to learn from other coaches than it is to learn from personal experiences.

In today’s world, the internet has so much information, and sometimes it is hard to search through all of it and find what is worth reading. The goal of this basketball article is to review some of the best basketball coaching blogs out there and then let you decide what ones are worth your time. This list will continue to grow as I find more quality blogs, and if you have found an excellent basketball coaching blog feel free to contact us.

  1. As a coach, be eager to learn, and work hard to be as up-to-date as possible by reading, attending clinics, and talking with fellow coaches.
    Never lose sight of the impact that you are having on young people’s lives.
    Teach your players the importance of proper priorities that allow for maximum personal, academic, and athletic development.
    As the coach, make it your goal to have your team as well prepared as possible.

  2. Coach, Can you give me the link to your blog? I will check it out to put it up on the list. Thanks.

  3. According to me, sports can be best learned from experienced and successful players. I am sure the above list of websites from best players will help kids to learn more about the game. There’s no doubt that Good coaches get kids into games!

  4. Who do you think is a better coach out of Coach K. and Phil Jackson? Also, how do you think they would do if they were given a team with a losing record like the Jazz? How much difference do you think they would make?

  5. Kyle,

    I just spent about an hour going thru these blogs, can’t believe there were some real gems I had not heard of. Thanks for collating and sharing. Can you take a look at and see if we make the cut?

  7. It’s always great to see how others are teaching basketball drills and shooting techniques. Always good to learn from others. Check out the newest site in basketball shooting instruction. Time for the modern shot to replace the traditional shot.

  8. Hello, I really enjoy your blog and the information you give out. If it wouldn’t be to much trouble could you check out my basketball blog? Any feedback you could give would be much appreciated. Thanks

  9. This is a very informative listing. All I can say is that good coaches should constantly be learning, practicing and planning. They don’t fall into the trap of thinking that they know enough. They set an example because they expect their players to put in the time to improve. You need to know the players first. What are the ins and outs for them? It’s not just about winning basketball games. I’ve seen some coaches who have been coaching for 25 years and still commit the same mistakes. By the way, if you’re looking for a good youth-oriented basketball camp in Lorton,Virginia, you should try Shots Up Basketball. They are known to have a loyal following of families from the area who return year after year.
