Coaches tips...

Occasionally, we'll post coaching tips to help provide for a great experience for coaches, kids and parents on each team.  Below is tip #1:

It's the middle of the season and kids continue to need motivation to improve in practices.  Try to incorporate at least one "game" in each practice among the skill sessions to allow for fun to be involved every night.  Games could include relay races or any activity where kids participate with team members vs. other kids on your basketball team.  For younger kids, rewards from these games help to further increase engagement be it being allowed to "start" or more simple as using their ball as the game ball for your next game, giving a candy bar to the winner, being first in line to start high fives after a game, etc...

Good luck!  Make it fun!
