Youth Basketball...A WHOLE New Game

I have added an article at the bottom which I wrote a few months back...being a youth coach is a whole new thing for me.  I remember playing AAU in high school, but I don't remember the parents being so competitive or coaches being such blood hounds.  What I remember were the days when my family lugged me clear across the state of Kansas just so I could play on the weekends and in the summer (in Western Kansas there was no such thing as a summer league or local tournaments.)  I remember my…

Looking for a start in collegiate coaching

I am currently looking for a GA or Intern position in women's basketball. I have experience coaching boys and girls 6-18yrs of age. I have 2 yrs experience working with student-athletes on a D1 level in academics. I am just looking to get experience coaching. Any level is fine for me to start right now. I want to coach in the D2 D3 levels so I can work in academics. Let me know where I can look or apply.

My coaching experiences

Hey guys-

I'm currently a freshman at Campbell University in North Carolina. We are a D1 school currently in the Atlantic Sun Conference. This summer, we are moving into the Big South Conference, and I think it will be a great move for us basketball wise. Since this is my first blog post (I believe?) I want to tell you about myself. I love basketball period, have always loved it. I want to coach or become an AD. But I'm undecided on which track to go. Either way it's going to be a…

Thoughts on the Tournament

Thoughts on the Tournament

The day is officially here. It is March Madness time! Technically the tournament has started. We are supposed to say that the “first round” has already happened. But let’s be real guys. We will all still call these games the “play-in games,” and they will never be very meaningful. I got into two brackets this year, and both of them said just turn in your bracket before Thursday, since Thursday is when the REAL madness… Continue

State Tournament Time!

State Tournament Time!

Everyone dreams as a high school kid to one day make the state tournament. Few teams make it, and only the very best end up actually winning it. When I was a player, I had really high hopes of going during my senior year. My junior year, I played at a very big school, and we were an average team. Just making playoffs would have been an accomplishment for us. Senior year though, I transferred, and I was at a very small school.… Continue

We Must Communicate! - part 2

We Must Communicate! - Part 2

March Madness is HERE! The greatest month of the year has now reached us, and I couldn't be more excited. I greatly oppose the expanding of the tournament. I thought it was perfect the way it was. There were bubble teams then and there will be bubble teams now! No matter how large you open up the field, there will always be bubble teams, but now the quality of those teams has diminished! What good is that? I'll be going… Continue
