Knocked Down And Discouraged

We had a big home basketball game. Back in 2014, Woods Charter boys’ varsity basketball team was playing Kestrel Heights. Kestrel was one of our rivals.

Coach for Passion, Money or Both?

From the very beginning, I always believed there was no money in coaching youth sports. My youth coaches volunteered their time because they loved the sport, and were passionate about making a difference in our lives. I always had a healthy admiration, and appreciation for all youth coaches. They took time to give back helping […]

The Dreaded “P” Word

As a middle or high school basketball coach, you’ll have 3 or 4 years to coach players. Coaches salivate when players show great promise!

I […]

Most basketball coaches coach because they’re passionate about the game, and passionate about the youth. It’s not for the money. Why? There is no “real” money in coaching basketball. Generally speaking, at the middle school, high school and AAU levels, a coach’s pay is anywhere from $0 – $2,000 for an entire season. This doesn’t […]

Basketball Camp Secrets – Running Progressive Camps

Prior to running my own basketball camps, I had worked with many other basketball camp organizations. The one common flaw I witnessed (over and over) was there was no real curriculum. In other words, once a kid completed one basketball camp, there were no progressive follow-on camps they may take. It was one and done. […]
