This book is written for you who are coaching children in basketball. We stress how to teach children this complex game and to have fun doing it. The book covers all facets of the game from "how to" dribble to stategies and tactics. Coaching children should be fun for everyone, for you, for the parents and for the children. As a coach, we cover the teaching attitude and methods. We always keep in mind that the game is for the children and not for the adults. Winning isn't everything, but learning to play well and wanting to win is. We take the children from first through the eighth grades and break them into four categories. In each category we discuss the players needs and abilities, what they are capable of in both the physical and emotional sense, and their limitations. We have defined the coach's role, the parent's role and the player's role.
