Ultimate Post-season Basketball Checklistby Scott Peterman
Here’s what to do BEFORE spring gets here…[Ultimate Checklist!]
I’ll admit this upfront…
If I don’t write something down, it ceases to exist as far as my brain is concerned.
I rely heavily on lists and organizational tools.
That may be the teacher in me, but whatever the reason, I need structure to make the best use of my day…(who doesn’t!)
So when I saw this tool, I was floored.
This is EXACTLY what I was looking for.
I mean, every coach has a plan they go through to prep for their post-season “rituals”, but I’ve NEVER seen anything as detailed as this.
I literally put aside the forms and notes I’ve been using for years, and replaced them with this “secret weapon”.
Coach Derek Sheridan, who runs the show at Delta HS in Ohio, is my new favorite guy.
He’s gone over and above with this 39-page basketball-specific post-season planning tool.
Here are just a few of the 31 different topics that I ripped right from the Table of Contents:

Seriously, NASA could learn something from this simple and effective structure.
I think it’s awesome that one of “us” took the time to sit down and write this up…and then offered it to his colleagues.
You can have everything for personnel from drills to plays, and special situation work, all structured in an easy to use format.
This stuff is GOLD!
Anyway, he’s charging $17 for the whole thing!
However, he did succeed in making it a “no brainer”…
Anyway, I’m all in with this one.
See you courtside,

Men's Basketball Hoop Scoop, Coach Scott Peterman has coached at the NCAA Division 2 (Southwestern Oklahoma State University), NAIA (USAO), and JUCO Levels (Blinn College and Carl Albert State College) as well as high school. Coach Peterman just felt that fellow coaches, especially young coaches, need to constantly work on their “game,” just like the basketball players that we coach. We as coaches need to improve ourselves.
