    mechanisms are down -- you can pour in the
    knowledge.

    mishaps.
  • Dont dwell on the negative, and never ridicule a
    player or play.

Part 2 Communication
  • Sending and Receiving Information

34
Communication
  • What is communication?
  • Sending and Receiving Information
  • Verbal Communications
  • Non-verbal Communications
  • Our actions speak louder than our words !

35
Sending Effective Verbal Messages
  • Be positive and honest
  • Dont nag
  • Dont use cheerful clichés that cover-up issues
  • Use Positive Words AND, Nice idea, good attempt,
    try to, do
  • Avoid Negative Words BUT, NOT, next time dont,
    you need to, you should

36
Sending Effective Verbal Messages
  • Start with what was good, then what needs to be
    improved.
  • Players will listen to constructive criticism in
    small doses when given large amounts of worthy
    praise.

37
Sending Effective Verbal Messages
  • State it clearly and simply
  • Organize your thoughts before you speak
  • Be accurate, brief, and helpful
  • Use language your players will understand
  • Dont go on and on

38
Sending Effective Verbal Messages
  • Say it loud enough, and say it again.
  • Use a loud, clear voice - players will tune out
    garbled and weak commands
  • Enthusiasm can motivate your players
  • But dont dominate the practice with a constant,
    booming voice
  • If at first they do not understand, say it again
    in a slightly different way

  • BEEF, Up and Wide, Finish, Attack, Deny

39
Sending Effective Verbal Messages

    corrosive to a players spirits

40
Sending Non-Verbal Messages

    communications
  • Your gestures always trump your words
  • Use appropriate facial expressions
  • Your face tells all - and the players will study
    it like a map smile
  • Use appropriate body language
  • What does head down and shoulders slumped tell
    you? Hands on your hips and jaw-clenched?

41
Sending Non-Verbal Messages
  • Use appropriate physical contact
  • A hand shake or high five
  • A pat on the shoulder
  • An arm around the back
  • A Hug
  • Are all appropriate and human ways of showing
    concern, approval, and joy.
  • Be pleasant, confident, and vigorous!

42
Receiving Information
  • To communicate effectively one must be a good
    receiver!
  • Pay Attention
  • focus on the verbal and non-verbal messages
  • Listen Actively
  • give full attention
  • establish eye contact
  • repeat back what youve heard, paraphrase
  • show that you care

43
Constructive Feedback
  • When a mistake is made, everyone knows it, ignore
    it and focus on the solution.
  • Which do you prefer to hear?
  • Dont pass the ball to the post when she is
    double teamed!
  • When the post is double teamed look to pass to
    the open wing.

44
Destructive Feedback
  • The following are comments heard in recent SYA
    games
  • Thats You Tim Thats your man
  • What are you doing?
  • What were you thinking ?
  • Dont pass it to Bob, he cant catch it

45
But we need to coach them
  • Yes - and we will in a positive manner
  • Tim close on your man when he is one pass away
    from the ball
  • Thats You Tim Thats your man
  • Holly set up 13 and go left
  • What are you doing?
  • Good idea Caitlyn - try it again
  • What were you thinking ?
  • Nice pass John, Bob catch it ready to shoot
  • Dont pass it to Bob, he cant catch it

46
Communicating with Parents
  • Parents need to know that their children are in
    safe and knowledgeable hands.
  • How can you put the parents at ease?
  • Pre-Season Meeting
  • Open Lines of Communication
  • Get them involved

47
Pre-Season Parent Meeting
  • Describe your background and approach to coaching
  • Present your goals for the team
  • Give your preferred method of communication
  • Is it cell phone, email, or face-to-face?
  • Welcome their questions and concerns here and
    throughout the season

48
Pre-Season Parent Meeting

    if concerns arise

  • Respect for the opponent
  • Respect for the referees

  • Parents who assist the referees
  • Parents who coach from the sidelines

50
On-Going Communication with Parents
  • Be sure to keep the lines of communication open
    to parents throughout the season.
  • Send messages, solicit feedback
  • Be proactive

51
Getting Parents Involved
  • Practice Day
  • Run a skills station
  • Volunteer Building Director
  • Assistant Coach
  • Game Day
  • Scoreboard or Book
  • Statistics
  • Video
  • Assistant Coach

52
Communication with Opponents
  • No opponent means no game. We are thankful we
    have an opponent - they are not the enemy.
  • Tips
  • Visit with the opposing coach before the game
  • Do not be dragged into a feud with the opponents
  • Get along with opposing coach -- competition is
    on the floor not bench

53
Communicating with Referees
  • Your communication to the referees is extremely
    influential on your players.
  • YOU MUST SET A GOOD EXAMPLE.
  • How to Treat Referees
  • Greet referees with a handshake, introduce
    yourself, and if time permits visit a moment.
  • Always show respect for the referees before,
    during, and after the game.
  • Never make disrespectful remarks or body
    gestures.
  • Thank them after the game.

54
Communicating with Referees
  • Coaches who assist the referees by calling the
    game create numerous problems
  • Players respect for the referee is diminished.
  • Referees patience will wear thin -- who wants the
    game on the line when it wears out.
  • Players focus on external circumstances (excuses)
    in place of internal effort.
  • Referees may respond with less desirable efforts.
  • If you absolutely must discuss a topic with a
    referee, find a quiet time (time-out, half-time,
    etc.) and address the referee one-on-one with
    respect in a quiet voice that no one can overhear.

55
Part 3 Safety
  • Be prepared for the unexpected

56
Planning for Safety
  • An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
  • Safety Topics
  • Physical conditioning
  • Equipment and facilities inspection
  • Matching athletes to inherent risks
  • Proper supervision and record keeping
  • Environmental conditions

57
Physical Conditioning
  • To play basketball safely, players must be fit in
    two ways
  • Cardio-Respiratory Fitness
  • Muscular Fitness

58
Cardio-Respiratory Fitness
  • How do we make players cardio fit?
  • Run - But dont just run
  • Setup multiple stations, enlist parents and
    assistant coaches, always have the players in
    motion.
  • Start slow and add activity -- challenge your
    players, and monitor their progress.
  • Encourage players to include cardio exercise at
    home (run, bike, swim, etc.) between practices.
    20 to 30 minutes everyday of elevated heart rate
    is ideal.

59
Muscular Fitness
  • The ability of muscles to sustain strenuous
    activity for longer periods.
  • Muscular fitness includes
  • strength
  • muscle endurance
  • power
  • speed
  • flexibility

60
Muscular Fitness
  • How do we make players muscular fit?
  • Stretch
  • Work the muscles with passing drills, shooting
    drills, defensive drills, etc
  • Setup multiple stations, enlist parents and
    assistant coaches, have players in motion.
  • Start slow and add activity -- challenge your
    players, and monitor their progress.
  • Encourage players to include strength training at
    home (weights, cross training) between practices.
    2 to 3 sessions per week will build flexibility
    and muscle strength.

61
Muscular Fitness
  • Muscular fitness can prevent injuries but should
    an injury occur, fitness minimizes damage and
    speeds recovery.
  • Caveats
  • Younger children may be too immature to develop
    much muscle mass - their focus should be on
    endurance and flexibility.

62
Putting Fitness into Practice
  • Warm-up
  • Stretch, loosen-up, get warm
  • Develop Cardio Fitness
  • Drills with running
  • Develop Muscular Fitness

64
Matching Athletes to Risks

  • 12 year olds can vary by 1 foot and 90 pounds
    dont put your players at risk
  • Advise parents of the inherent risks of
    basketball it is a contact sport
  • Discuss mouth guards, goggles, and athletic
    support in the pre-season parent meeting
  • No Pockets in Shorts

Proper Supervision

    at all times to prevent injury
