I’m going to ask you some straightforward questions.
In school, would you rather your kid be amongst the high achievers or low achievers?
Amongst friends, would you rather your kid be one of the leaders or followers?
In basketball (or any sport), would you rather your kid be an impact player, or non-impact player?
In other words, would you rather your kid be the hammer or the nail?
It’s my guess that you want your kid to be the hammer! As parents, we yearn for our kids to be in an advantageous position. We work really hard to help them accomplish this.
Under no circumstance do we want our kids being beat up on, taken advantage of or relegated as insignificant. This includes any and everything our kids are involved in, including basketball!
If you want your kid to thrive in basketball (be the hammer), find a coach that understands your kid and really knows the game!
Your kid then will get fundamentals-based skill development, basketball IQ, character enrichment, confidence and lots of fun!
This translates to your kid being that impact player and leader!
