In this video, Mark Madsen, Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach, provides three tips for high school basketball coaches:
- Stick to the Schedule – Give your players a schedule a month or two in advance and follow it. Players will need a few days off so they can spend time with their families and lead a normal life outside of practice.
- Don't Make Practice Too Long – The duration is determined by the individual coach, but it is recommended that practice should only be 1-2 hours long. Use this time wisely with the proper drills.
- Make Drills Competitive – Competition can bring out the best in everyone, so make sure practice is intense and can create growth. This will help foster a high-level, competitive environment for your athletes.
