Coaching Strategies–Then and Now


first_imgAs I watch high school games these days I often wonder how I would do if I were on the bench coaching.  In my day, we did not have the 3-point shot, so it seemed to be much easier to protect the lead.  You also did not have the myriad of foul shots that are part of today’s game–for example, there wasn’t a double foul situation after 6 fouls in a half. The game, in general, was played at a slower pace.Today the 3-point shot has not only increased the ability to score fast, but it also has changed the way players look at the game.  There is little practice, it seems to me, on shooting mid-range jump shots or working on free throws.  Watch how players warm up for the game.  They want to shoot the 3 or go high for a simulated dunk.  Also, today you almost have one coach for each of the players.  In my day you only had one assistant on the bench with you–maybe two if the freshman coach sat there.It doesn’t matter as far as I am concerned.  I enjoyed the game then, and I still enjoy it now!  I’m not sure, though, how I would do coaching today.last_img read more
