: : : Hello I am a new travel ball coach and i am trying to teach my kids the fundamentals of Man to Man Defense but they seem to have a hard time understanding the basic concepts of going from help side to deny off of screens and getting thru. Also i have a team of kids who do not shoot the ball at a high clip and bad shooting forms. Where should i delegate my practice time toward.
: : What age are you coaching?
: : You've got to teach both things, but it's probably best to break them up into separate days of focus. Man to man defense will naturally come easier to them than perfecting their shot.
: : Good luck with the shooting forms. I've seen some really whack stuff out there due to bad habits developing when they're real young.
: Agree with above post. Spend time on both but start with man to man. I have my kids switch all screens except big little and this keeps them focused. We 30 minutes a practice on shooting . Have them shoot one handed , keeps form correct. Good Luck
Teach fundamentals, 1/2 practice offensive skill drills and the other 1/2 defensive drills. Agree, so many wild looking shooting forms out there. It is embarrassing to watch high school kids shoot from their chest.
