Coaches if you are not allowing your athletes to rest and are playing a whole lot of games during the dead period, you are risking injuries to your athletes. If you are playing 25-30 games prior to the viewing tournaments its just to stroke your ego and is a selfish act. Playing multiple games every weekend in May and June is hard on athletes that are giving it there all. Just as a favor spend May and June developing your athletes skills. Work on their off hand and for goodness sake their jumpers. At some point it will pay off.
Some programs tend to overlook strength training which is Vital in the off season. I have seen clips of the Cal Storm doing beach workouts and some conditioning. How many other programs are spending time doing that? I think it will solve some of these ACL and MCL injuries that we are plagued with right now in the sport of Basketball.
I'm very open to a discussion about this topic. but I will not respond to foolishness. Thanks
