Bethel Basketball: Skill Development


In this course, Coach Doug Novak presents "Bethel Basketball: Skill Development".

As a young coach Novak viewed “The Offense” and “Player Development” as two separate entities..... But as he has gotten older he has learned to blend the two.

Coach Novak shares his skill development series which he has used to help both collegiate and professional players. In this course, Coach Novak demonstrates his "fan" and "swing" series.
