Spending some time the past few weeks reviewing clinic notes and this morning it was from my friend Dean Lockwood of the University of Tennessee. This particular set of notes came from a PGC/Glazier Clinic in Chicago a few years ago that we spoke at:
You have to have a philosophy
On motivation via Louis L'Amour: "The water doesn't run till you turn the faucet on."
On improving via Max DePree: "We can't become what we need to be by remaining what are."
What you want
What it is
Evaluate Your Program
1. Do a needs assessment
2. Define profile of competition you want.
3. Level of conditioning...this is where...
4. Coach controls environment
Be precise, clear and specific
Drills: time and score...don't stop competitive drills
Readiness and Preparation
Recognize and reward high achievers
Starve the turkeys
Feed the eagles
Know you boss and know how you boss defines success.
Competitive Skill Work
1. Shooting Skill -- time and score...chart
2. Team Drills -- 4/4/4 Cut Throat -- only score on defense
4. Practice must be harder than games
