Habit Teaching and Forming Drillsby Nate Loenser
As we’re a product of our environment, it is the habit that determines the chances of achieving and maintaining your objectives. If you want to win a championship then you must stay resilient on and off the court. The key characteristics of a winning organization are daily habits. It's vital for a coach to set standards and habits for a team in order to achieve success.
Practice habits project to the court. Having practice beliefs and goals are the most important when setting up a plan. Coach Nate Loesner mentions that you are what you emphasize. Meaning your team performs and acts behind those beliefs that you set forward from the beginning. Habits should always be focused on progression, player development being one. You want to ensure that the habits you're placing are setting up your players for improvement.
Utilizing dual implication drills has a great impact on players, implementing rebounding drills with transition scenarios can become effective. Something we don't have is too much time, life outside of the game can limit the time you have to practice and knocking down drills at the same time ultimately helps your players focus on more than one aspect of the game.
Learn how to teach good habits and form drills together to help improve the development of your players.
