My students need resistance bands and parachutes, shot contestors, and dribble specs to help them practice their basketball skills.
Our school is a rural high school that was established in 1961. Many of the students have parents and grandparents that are alumni. It is pridefully supported by a strong community, yet the financial resources are oftentimes lacking. Over half of the students receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch.
My desire for each of my basketball ladies is for them to realize that the lessons and skills they are learning on the court will make them more productive citizens.
As their coach and a teacher in the school, I work diligently to instill determination, a sense of self-worth and collaboration skills. These skills will benefit them for a lifetime.
I believe in equipping my players to be successful on the court and off. The first steps to a winning program begins with successful coaching of the fundamentals. But, without the right equipment, it's hard to practice and win, despite players talent and drive. With the dribble specs, my players will break bad habits of looking down at the ball and learn to play by feel. The resistance bands will help my players by adding explosiveness to basketball movements such as dribbling, jumping, defensive slides, and speed training. The running parachutes will work in much the same way - ultimately building core strength in my ladies. The shot contestor will mimic having a defender in your path during practice.
Ultimately, the goal is to motivate my athletes so that they believe in their physical ability to compete on the court AND in life!
It takes equipment to practice and train. It takes dedication and commitment to accomplish goals.
