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 (PDF file).
A basketball team is a complex system. Complexity science has been used to analyse its functioning. For some reason, this line of research has caused relatively few changes in the coaching praxis. As a profession, we tend to coach as we “always” used to coach.
We make an effort to change that. First we draft the complex basketball coaching paradigm. Then we apply it to practical coaching. We list practical coaching guidelines and drills where the complex coaching paradigm is utilised.
So, in 92 pages we go from the underlying assumptions of coaching to the very nuts and bolts.
Balancing the variability and relevancy of practice tasks is discussed in Chapter 6.8.
An example drill where the variability and the relevancy are hopefully balanced, is 7.2 Full Court 1v1 Plus Two Extras.
