Ep 2102 Peak Performance Prep
Teachhoops.com WintheSeason.com In this episode of Coach Unplugged, the hosts discuss the importance of strength and conditioning in basketball. They emphasize that basketball is a contact sport, requiring physical fitness and sharing personal injury anecdotes to illustrate this. The episode highlights the need for off-season and in-season training, advocating a pyramid approach that starts with general conditioning and becomes more sport-specific. Strength training is crucial, especially for female athletes prone to knee injuries, with a focus on bodyweight exercises and resistance training. Yoga and mindfulness are recommended for flexibility and mental focus. They stress integrating conditioning into practice drills and customizing workouts to players' needs. The hosts conclude that regular strength and conditioning are vital for injury prevention and performance, focusing on lower body strength for jumping and sprinting and upper body strength for shooting and passing, and suggest tapering training as the season progresses.

Ep 2100 Mastering Jump Ball Progression: Defensive Fundamentals and Drills
1w ago
Ep 2100 Mastering Jump Ball Progression: Defensive Fundamentals and Drills
https://teachhoops.com/ Our main focus is on the defensive fundamentals needed to deny the give and go. We outline three key principles: Jump to the Ball: As soon as the ball is passed, defenders must jump in the direction of the pass to close off passing lanes and disrupt offensive movement. Force the Offensive Player Behind You: This involves positioning oneself to ensure the offensive player cannot cut in front, effectively using the body to maintain defensive dominance. Refuse to Get Front Cut: Defenders must prevent offensive players from cutting in front of them, maintaining a strong position to deny easy baskets. We then illustrate these principles through three progressive drills: Basic Denial Drill: This drill involves an offensive player at the top, a defender, and another player or coach on the wing. The goal is to prevent the offensive player from receiving a return pass by jumping to the ball and forcing the player to cut behind the defender. Progressive Denial Drill: Building on the first drill, this exercise has the offensive player circling out to the opposite wing after attempting the front cut. The defender must maintain their position and be ready to close out on the ball once it's skipped to the opposite side. Complex Denial Drill: This drill adds an additional offensive and defensive player, allowing practice of both individual and team defensive concepts. It involves denying the initial front cut, rotating to deny the pass back to the top, and then closing out on the skip pass. Throughout these drills, we emphasize the importance of vocal and physical pressure, using commands like "dead, dead, dead" to reinforce defensive intensity. These drills not only teach fundamental defensive techniques but also help in developing a cohesive team defense. By mastering these jump ball progression drills, coaches can significantly enhance their team's defensive capabilities, ensuring they are well-prepared to counteract common offensive plays.

Ep 2099. Beyond the Bench: The Impact of a Basketball Coach
Teachhoops.com WintheSeason.com In this episode of Coach Unplugged, host Steve Collins introduces a segment from Coaching Youth Hoops. He starts by thanking sponsors Doctor Dish and teachhoops.com for their support. The focus shifts to the profound impact coaches have on their players. Using the movie "Grown Ups" as a reference, where former teammates reunite for their eighth-grade coach's funeral, the discussion highlights how deeply players remember their coaches. While players may forget specific plays or strategies, they vividly recall their coaches' personalities, how they were treated, and whether they felt valued as individuals. The episode underscores that most players won't reach professional levels, but they will remember their coaches for life. This lasting influence was evident in a 2008 Beijing Olympics study, where a strong coach-athlete relationship was identified as the most crucial factor in athletes achieving their best, surpassing equipment, training, and nutrition. To build these impactful relationships, coaches need to focus on two main aspects: helping players improve and supporting them unconditionally. Players respect and remember coaches who genuinely invest in their development and well-being. This dedication fosters a lasting, positive influence on their lives, highlighting the significant role coaches play beyond the game itself.

Ep 2098 Choosing the Right Hand: Key Traits of an Exceptional Assistant Coach
Teachhoops.com WintheSeason.com In this episode of Coach Unplugged, host Steve Collins discusses building a successful coaching staff with co-host Coach Barker. Steve begins by thanking sponsors Doctor Dish and teachhoops.com, emphasizing their contributions to the basketball community. The main topic revolves around the qualities needed in assistant coaches. Steve outlines three essential roles: the "energizer bunny" who handles administrative tasks, the "Yoda" who has deep basketball knowledge, and the "Nelly" who challenges decisions and avoids being a yes-man. He stresses the importance of assistants providing diverse perspectives and skills to complement the head coach's strengths and weaknesses. Coach Barker adds that new coaches should prioritize assistants with whom they have strong relationships and trust over purely technical knowledge. He also highlights the importance of having a diverse coaching staff, including younger coaches and those who can handle specific tasks like parent communication or film analysis. Barker also mentions the benefit of having someone on staff who is present in the school to handle day-to-day issues and maintain player relationships. They both agree that a well-rounded coaching staff is critical for a program's success, with each member bringing unique strengths. Trust, respect, and the ability to work well together are crucial factors when selecting assistant coaches. The episode concludes with Steve and Barker reflecting on the importance of enjoying the company of one's coaching staff, especially during challenging times.

Ep 2096 Good Shots
Teachhoops.com WintheSeason.com In this episode of Coach Unplugged from the 5th Quarter Studios in Madison, Wisconsin, host Steve Collins discusses creating good shots in basketball with a guest coach. Steve starts by encouraging listeners to leave reviews and thanking the sponsors, Doctor Dish and ttubes.com. Doctor Dish is highlighted as the top shooting machine, while ttubes.com is promoted as a comprehensive resource for basketball coaches with a 14-day free trial and 1-on-1 mentoring. The discussion focuses on strategies for creating good shots, emphasizing transition play. The first seven seconds after gaining possession is considered the optimal time for an open shot, supported by analytics. The guest coach stresses running in transition to beat the defense. They discuss the subjective nature of a good shot, introducing the "ROB" acronym (Range, Open, Balance) to define it. They explore methods for creating good shots through actions like dribble hand-offs and pick and rolls, designed to create advantages. The role of the shot clock is addressed, with the guest coach explaining their approach at the high school level by encouraging players to take the first good shot as the clock winds down. Practice strategies are highlighted, including small-sided games and drills like 3v3 back tap to simulate game situations and create advantages. Emphasis is placed on teaching players to quickly push the ball up the floor, using drills that start players behind half court to practice transition scenarios. Both coaches agree on the importance of clear communication and consistent expectations for what constitutes a good shot. They stress that regular practice and reinforcement of these principles are key to effective offensive play. The episode concludes with Steve thanking the guest and reminding listeners to subscribe to the podcast on Apple, Spotify, or their preferred platform.

Ep 2095 The Importance of Language and Phrasing
Teachhoops.com WintheSeason.com In this episode of the Basketball Coach Unplugged, the hosts discuss the critical role of language and phrasing in coaching. They start with light banter about personal health issues post-season before delving into the main topic. One coach emphasizes how specific phrases can significantly impact team culture and player mindset. He shares some of his favorite coaching phrases like "be great at what you're good at," "no deposit, no return," "we over me," and "failure to plan is a plan for failure." These phrases are not just motivational but also serve to reinforce key values and roles within the team. The conversation touches on the importance of consistency and simplicity in communication. Coaches need to develop a clear and concise vocabulary that everyone in the program understands. The other coach agrees, mentioning how he involves his team in creating their terminology to ensure everyone is on the same page. This collaborative approach helps in building a strong, cohesive team culture. They also discuss how language can be a trigger for players, helping to reinforce habits and expectations. Simple phrases like "listen with your eyes" can effectively capture attention and foster better engagement. Both coaches highlight the importance of being purposeful with language, ensuring that every phrase used has a clear meaning and contributes to the overall goals of the program. Moreover, the hosts reflect on their own experiences, noting how they have simplified their language over the years to improve clarity and effectiveness. They stress that words matter and can have a significant impact on players, both positively and negatively. Therefore, it's crucial for coaches to be mindful of their phrasing and to use language that motivates and guides their players constructively. The episode concludes with a reminder for coaches to be deliberate in their communication, as it shapes the culture and effectiveness of their program. Being consistent with key phrases not only helps in maintaining discipline but also in building a strong, unified team that understands and embraces the coach's vision.

After some lighthearted banter and sponsor mentions, they dive into the topic, outlining various approaches such as hedging, icing, drop coverage, and switching.
