Youth Basketball Curriculumby Matt Hackenberg
This guide describes the progression of skills, drills and concepts for implementing a vertically aligned basketball program starting from 1st grade and ending with varsity basketball. This is our guide we share with our youth coaches, and includes videos of some of the drills described for each stage of development.
The guide is written from the persepctive of a varsity coach and directed to the youth coaches. The guide shares what the goals of the youth coach should be and what behaviors youth coaches are to encourage and discourage. The guide walks the reader through the four stages of athlete development including the skills and drills to be used at each stage.
