Develop Sound Fundamentals:
Layups, left/right
Dribbling, left/right – head up, see the court.
Pivoting
Man-to-man defense, good shuffling
techniques.
Rebounding
Develop one-on-one skills.
“Read and react” offensively and defensively.
Teach an up-tempo offensive scheme – run under
control.
Emphasize a simple, attacking offensive plan.
To instill a competitive nature in the boys… Teach
them they need to work hard in order to improve.
To teach the boys to compete to win.
Inspire the boys to participate in our community
affairs program.
For the boys to have fun and want to play
basketball at LHS.
