Randi Peterson: 1-on-1 Drillsby Better Basketball
Randi Peterson likes to mix it up! She has learned that practice gets repetitive when the same drills are rehearsed every single day until they become so repetitive that the teams she coaches have less fun with it. The trick is to do different kinds of drills that still work on the same fundamentals - that way the same work gets done, but the practice stays fun. These videos are filmed with Randi and her team practicing with one-on-one drills that keep it interesting and encourage the players to work their hardest.
After college, Randi pursued her coaching career, starting as an assistant coach at the University of Minnesota Morris. She was named head coach of the women's program in 2006, and in her first season she was named UMAC Coach of the Year. Randi then accepted the head coach position at Coe College, where she has been a 3-time IIAC Coach of the Year and WBCA West Region Coach of the Year. She led Coe to their first-ever Conference Championship in 2010 and repeated again in 2011. She also led the team to NCAA DIII National tournament appearances in 2011 and 2012. Randi is currently a Division I assistant coach for the Charlotte 49ers.
