It’s great to see the kids after the training sessions stay and continue to play and work on their skills. It’s something that we often preach as coaches, that in order to truly get better at basketball, you have to be willing to put in the work outside the times that you have training. And that was exactly what happened after the session this Saturday. After an intense hour and a half of skill work (dribbling, different layup drills, scrimmaging), the kids were still eager to continue playing. There were about eight kids that stayed after to keep playing. I was proud to see that the kids that I have been coaching are taking in the things that I attempt to teach them and then applying them. I know if they continue to work on their game outside of training, they can improve an immense amount, even more than they probably believe. I hope they continue to put in the work that I saw after the training session on Saturday! I’m really looking forward to working with them again now! When you have players who truly want to get better and seek for your help, it makes me want to help them that much more and that’s a great feeling!
