Our boy and girl athletes are determined and hard-working. They put more into learning the game and developing as players more than most. They are all seventh and eighth-graders. They are enthusiastic and energetic. We are in a rural area with no outdoor parks or places to play football or basketball except in the school setting.
They want to become better athletes, but do not always have the funds to pay for what they need to improve their skills.
School budgets are spread thin with physical education and athletics the last to receive funding.
By attending the ChampCoach Basketball Membership, I will have the opportunity to attend a variety of sessions that focus on academics, technology, player skill development, motivation for staff and players, and offensive and defensive systems. As a coach of multiple sports, I am responsible for supporting students in reaching both their goals, so we work on a variety of skill areas.
This membership to this training, which allows access to the best of the best in coaching, will benefit my players as it is so important for them to gain the necessary skills they need to be successful on and off the court.
This membership will allow me to learn strategies and skills that I will then be able to incorporate into my practices to benefit player's progress.
