Complex Basketball Coaching. How to make basketball practices more effective.

What kind of coaching optimises the effectiveness of basketball practice?

That’s the question discussed in my book Complex Basketball Coaching. How to make basketball practices more effective.

It’s available as an e-book.

Teams in basketball and all invasion team sports are complex systems. Complexity science has been used to analyse their functioning. For some reason, this line of research has caused few changes in  coaching. We tend to coach as we “always” used to coach.

We can change that. First we draft the complex coaching paradigm. Then we apply it to practical coaching. We list practical coaching guidelines and drills where the complex coaching paradigm is utilised.

A lot of the book’s 92 pages are applicable to all invasion team sports just as well to basketball.

Here’s the table of contents.

Here are two drills from the book:

Shooting and close-out drill: 7.7 Five Close-outs 1v1 / 2v2

Ball Handling Drill: 7.12 Coast to Coast on Demand
