Basketball drills in a deck of cards

Are you coaching a youth basketball team and often find yourself wondering if you’re teaching the proper fundamentals? We hear from people all the time that the youth programs are not preparing the players for the next level and that by the time boys and girls get to high school they don’t know the basics of dribbling, passing, shooting and defense. We understand, you’re just volunteering for this season, not trying to make a career out of it. But what if for $20.00 you could have everything you needed to run fun, exciting and fundamentally-sound practices that showed players the proper techniques of dribbling, passing, shooting and defense? And what if it came in a handy deck of card format that meant you didn’t need to do anything other than show up at practices draw out four cards and follow the simple instructions on each card? Pick yourself up one of our CoachDecks and you’ll look like a professional coach on the court.

What better investment?

Youth leagues with motivated, capable coaches have more dynamic and fun practices. Kids who participate in more exciting practices are more likely to want to come back and play every year, and tell their friends how great the experience is. That’s why so many leagues have chosen to provide their coaches with our CoachDeck, a handy and user-friendly deck of cards with 52 good, fundamental drills broken into four color-coded categories designed so that volunteer youth coaches can run terrific practices, “on the fly” even if they have no prior coaching experience.

Why do more kids and coaches come back?

Leagues using CoachDeck tell us that not only do more coaches volunteer to return season after season because they felt like they did a more capable job of running practices, but because children better-enjoyed those fun and productive practices, more of them wanted  to come back and play again the next year. If you’re interested in creating the healthiest and most dynamic league experience possible for your coaches and players, CoachDeck can help!

We need coaches!!!

That’s the plea we hear from volunteer-run youth sports leagues every day. But did you know that leagues using CoachDeck have a much easier time attracting and retaining their volunteer coaches? The reason is simple. When volunteers feel like they did  a better job they’re more likely to step up and do it again. If you throw a new coach out there without a CoachDeck they often feel embarrassed and lost. Not the kind of feeling they want to repeat. But give them the shot in the arm of confidence our deck provides and watch them run fun and dynamic practices. Before long they’ve got the hang of it and want to do it again!
