  Youth Basketball Coaching

World of Basketball web site would like to invite all of you to promote Basketball, especially youth basketball. But, don't promote only basketball, promote sport at all, promote healthy way of living. The best way to promote Basketball is to support youth Basketball in every way. If you a coach in some club, start basketball school. Collect kids and teach them about good things.

If you are teacher in school (Physical Education or similar), teach kids about Basketball or any other sport. Tell them what good things kids can have if they join any sport. Give them all possible informations about sport, recreation, fun, free-time, friendship, but don't forget school. Being good athletes means, being good person, good student. As a good students they can have possibility for University scholarship, first step to good future.

Teach them from beggining to value positive things, to help each other, to respect friends. Teach them to team spirit. Teach them to be winners, but at same time, teach them to accept lose. It is very important for kids to understant that they can't be winners all the time. Sometimes you got to lose. They can be winners even if they lose, if they did 100% in everything they doing.

Would you like to become the best shooter on your team?
Are you looking for a more effective way to coach Shooting?

"Here is video footage of 14-year-old “Swish” shooter, recorded three years after learning the Swish Method from Tom Nordland. To this day he and his dad continue using the tools and methods taught to them by Tom, and Gavin here brilliantly demonstrates the technique."Look at the beauty of his shooting! VIDEO.

"Here's a shooting clip of a 12 year old boy (93 lbs, says his dad) named Joe from Palo Alto I've coached a few times.  See the control and confidence this young boy has.  It's the confidence of "knowing."  He recently won a shooting championship at a sports academy in Florida, beating boys up through high school, some of whom are committed to Division 1 schools. VIDEO.

"Here's a clip of Joe shooting 3's.  The Swish approach to shooting is so simple, anyone can learn to shoot like these boys. VIDEO.

"Did you see the possibilities here?  How anyone can do this kind of shooting?  This is not rocket science!  Click here to go to the Swish website to order the video(s): SWISH22
