MyBB Some coaching changes I made that are working wonders
Many of you know I’m a high school basketball coach. For the most part my teams have struggled. Small 1A private school going up against a bunch of large 5A private schools due to our geographic location. Parents and players and a school administration that really didn’t care about winning. My AD and I do though.

Last spring and Summer, after a 0-20 season, and only having one victory that didn’t count because it was a scrimmage, I made my players commit to an off season drills program if they wanted to be a part of the team in 20/21. Due to summer travel I allowed some tardiness. But every returning player committed to this. I didn’t coach them any. I taught them how to play. A 6 month long basketball camp. I let them play pickup ball for half the time, to use the skills they were improving in. And to build competitiveness.

I also hit the local pickup ball and little league scene around our community. Promoting our school and program. Within one year, with some big assistance from our basketball program, our small private school went from 120 enrollment to 185. 4 kids came to our program that are now starting. I have enough players to run a true JH and JV team and next season may even have a freshman team.

To start the season, our first game was against a team that beat us by 25 and 17 in 2 games last year. We beat them 83-44 with in your face man to man defense. Our next game i ignorantly tried the same thing against a bigger 4A catholic school. It worked great for 3 quarters. We were up 9 after 3. Playing amazing man pressure defense and pushing the ball and out fast breaking the other team. In the 4th Q, with me only having a 7 man rotation for games like this one, they had more stamina from playing a 2/3 zone the entire game and they came back and were up by 4 with 30 seconds left and we had to start fouling.

I made a plan to play man to man in all First Q’s to wear teams down and then sit back in a mixture of zone packages for the rest of the game. Anytime they call timeouts, I switch my zone package to make it a wasted timeout for them. This frustrates players and coaches.

Our 3rd game this plan worked great against a team that beat us twice last season. But the team went on a run and took a 4 point halftime lead. Also, my top scorer broke his arm right before halftime. I lit a fire under my team and we came out in the 3rd and held them to 4 points and we’d go on to win by 14 points without our top scorer who is now out for the season.

With this new defensive approach, my team has more of their legs to actually shoot the ball and run the 3 different motion offenses we throw at teams. We are currently 5-2. Should be 6-1 if I was a better coach. With one team that we played being a top 10 Texas 5A school, who beat us by 23 and their length/defense held us to 12/40 shooting.

I say all of this to make a point. In season coaching changes, at any level work. Every coach has to have his moment where he learns and just like players, coaches have to grow and learn as well. I play games that I know we will lose because defeat and struggle is where we improve if we allow it to work it’s work.

Penny will get this done. I really believe it. He just has to figure
Out what his team is and who he is as a coach.

FYI, I keep a coaches diary and most of this is a copy and paste. Diaries work wonders if you are a coach.

This is why I do not understand some of the criticism for Penny openly changing the offense. It was working so he is switching it up to hopefully obtain better results.

I think he can make scheme changes till the cows come home. But if the players are not listening to him and the other coaches it will not matter. Right now there is just too much individualism among the players.

I think your 6 month bootcamp had much more effect than your in season coaching...

I think that is what these guys need. Dedicated skills training to focus on what they are good at and minimize what they are not.

Absolutely, I told my players that all of us love to be recognized when everyone is watching us and cheering us on. We love to be the center of attention, but that real improvement comes when no one is watching or there to cheer. That if if they are doing the right things and putting in the hard work behind the scenes they won’t have to go around bragging about themselves, because their hard work will show in their success on the court.

I say all of this to make a point. In season coaching changes, at any level work. Every coach has to have his moment where he learns and just like players, coaches have to grow and learn as well. I play games that I know we will lose because defeat and struggle is where we improve if we allow it to work it’s work.

Penny will get this done. I really believe it. He just has to figure
Out what his team is and who he is as a coach.

FYI, I keep a coaches diary and most of this is a copy and paste. Diaries work wonders if you are a coach.

Great post...

I think your 6 month bootcamp had much more effect than your in season coaching...

I think that is what these guys need. Dedicated skills training to focus on what they are good at and minimize what they are not.


I’ll bet the 4 new players has something to do with the turn around too 03-shhhh

Also congrats to BigDTiger for the success and for being open to change and making the right changes 04-cheers

No doubt the 4 new players have made a huge impact. Getting the buy in from last years starters and having them come off the bench is where I’m really proud of this team. It’s amazing seeing the work they’ve put in over the last year and then be willing to come off the bench. It’s made for a
Great bench. I just need a couple of them to be ready for the big moments and not fold under pressure. It’s one thing to play in a blow out, but close games seem to rattle them. Then when our top scorer (not the best player) broke his arm, my team Learned that bringing in someone else in his spot who is a defensive monster can be just as, if not more, effective.

Funny thing about 2 of my new players (transfers). They played for our biggest rival school last year. They and their parents decided to come play for us after they saw our heart and style of play last year, while beating us by 40. Gonna make for an interesting game in February.

It may be generational but our concern is our team & if our guys aren't listening to the coaches why are we paying the coaches so much? And why are we renewing contracts? Why are we recruiting premadonnas who are uncoachable? And why the hell can't we, in year 3, have PG who can consistently be a productive floor general. Maybe all of those answers are found in having a coach who is not organized, who can't communicate what is required for success & who plays 10-12 guys every game killing continuity & momentum or maybe he just doesn't know what is required himself.

Thats hard criticism from someone from Georgia. The state that Trump wants to disqualify so he can win. Give the man time, he will come thru , you want to pay the next guys salary?
