Quick Basketball Coaching Tips:

Set Basketball Practice Time Limits and Be Organized Don't make your basketball practice sessions too long.  Players get bored and lose focus if your practice session drags on.  Set a time frame to work on each phase of your game and try to stick to the time limits you set.  This will help make your practice time more productive and organized.  Remember, "Rome wasn't built in a day" and neither will your team be built during one practice session.

Deny Opponents Point Guard From Getting The Basketball When we talk about denying the basketball to a player we're usually referring to the opponent's best player.  Many times this is a good idea if you're facing a great scorer.  Although this quick tip is about denying the basketball, it's not about denying the opponents best player.  It's about denying their point guard from getting the basketball weather he/she is a scoring threat or not.  Many teams depend solely on their point guard to start their offensive sets.

They've prepared each play to be run a certain way and each player to start from a set position.  In these offenses the play will begin when the point guard has the ball and motions for the play to start.  An example of this would be a raised fist to signal the play or the point guard calling out a number such as, 14.  If you can deny an opponents point guard from getting the basketball it will greatly disrupt their offense because many teams aren't prepared to run their set plays without the point guard initiating the play.  You don't have to deny them every trip down the floor, just enough to keep their offense out of rhythm.  To prevent this from happening to your own team try to teach atleast a couple of players how to run each set from different positions so another player can begin the play if your point guard doesn't have the basketball.  Check back often for more random basketball coaching tips.
