: Would like to see the triple threat being taught a lot more during the early stages of development.
While I understand and agree with the sentiment, how many players receive a pass and are allowed to get into a classic triple threat stance. Have a kid receive the ball and square up into a classic triple threat position. Any defender that allows the player to calmly stay in triple threat is going to have to go sit down. From a triple threat, how many times will a player actually be able to make a chess pass with a defender there? Better idea: teach kids to have the ball in a power position- cocked behind the ear or at the hip, teach them how to rip and sweep through, teach them how to use the PIVOT to create time and space to be able to "work your magic.." as you say. Teaching fake a pass/make a pass, pivot, rip/sweep is much more realistic.
