Why Have The Academy?
I learned the game of basketball on a white board, back in the day, when all coaches did was study Xs and Os together. Times have changed and many coaches have forgotten how to teach the game of basketball. The foundational knowledge of Xs and Os has begun to slowly diminish. With The Academy it is time to get back to the basics. I want coaches to gather together once more and learn to teach the game of Basketball with a comprehensive and extensive knowledge of Xs and Os.
Who is The Academy For?
The Academy is for any coach at any level who wants to become a better teacher and communicator of the game of basketball. It is our responsibility as coaches to teach the correct foundations of offense and defense. At the Academy you will get 10 different concepts to help become that better coach and teacher.
