The Definitive Handbook for the Beginner High School Basketball Coach

The Definitive Handbook for the Beginner High School Basketball Coach

Many in the public arena perceive the high school basketball coach as someone who rolls out balls in practice and then paces feverishly in front of a bench in a noisy gym for 32 minutes of action, directing and exhorting athletes to the pursuit of victory. Often unappreciated are the countless days coaches devote discharging an array of responsibilities beyond what occurs during practice and a game. High school varsity basketball head coaches wear multiple hats: administrator, coach, teacher, manager, leader, community organizer, fundraiser, role model, marketer and mentor, each commanding specific skills with its own learning curve. Together the multiple roles comprise a collection of tasks both fascinating and dizzying.

This book provides the building blocks and tools new and aspiring high school basketball coaches need to run their basketball programs successfully and become effective coaches with long-term impact. Easy to follow, it is succinct and comprehensive at the same time, an invaluable source for the young coach.

The release of the book is set for late spring 2019. Order details will be posted once the book is available for purchase.
