I lost control

Years ago, my oldest daughter was a member of a recreational basketball team. I hate to say it, but that coach was absolutely clueless when it came to coaching kids.

It was hard to get angry because he was volunteering his time. Unless I was willing to step up, I had to zip it up!

At that moment, I felt like I lost control of my daughter’s well-being. My feeling I was letting her down. Have you ever had this feeling, or is it just me? Here’s the deal! You can do something about it!

Every sport has 3 aspects: skill development, team strategy and scrimmaging.

The skill development aspect is the foundational layer for team strategy and scrimmaging. Without skill development, your kid’s ability to perform at a high-level is muted.

If, and when your kid is on a team, and s/he isn’t growing appropriately, step in and facilitate skill development outside their current team! This may be done by encouraging your kid to self-practice more, take private lessons or attend skill development camps.

At Youth Hoops Basketball Camps, we specialize in individual skill development. Our basketball camps are appropriate for anyone, who wants to strengthen their individual basketball skills and IQ.

This, in turn, will make your kid a significantly better player (regardless of the sport)!
