Building a Program Series: Control and Minimize Slippageby Blitz Basketball Systems
Lesson #5 of the Building a Program Series - Control and Minimize Slippage
This lesson is one of ten in our Building a Program series. This series focuses on a combination of off-court and on-court ideas that can take your program to the next level or build it from the ground up. These ideas have been built through 25 years of running a highly successful high school basketball program.
Each course in this series is a 2,000 word article that includes highly specific examples and ideas that can help you build your program. These writings are easy to read and are downloadable PDFs, so you can always save them.
Here is a short excerpt from this lesson, titled Control and Minimize Slippage:
"On the first day, everyone is counting together, doing the same stretch at the same time, and clapping in unison after every stretch. As days go by, the circle gets sloppy, the counting quieter, and the clapping grows less enthusiastic. This is slippage — and slippage in your pre-practice stretching sends this very clear message to the players: slippage is acceptable. If slippage is fine in your pre-practice routine, then how can you expect your players to execute their plays correctly or handle defending a ball screen appropriately?"
This course is all about the power of controlling slippage within your program!
