Basketball season is here and in full swing. Coaches are preparing their teams for the next game with scouting reports and watching team film. Teams are also prepping for competition by executing half court offensive plays and defensive schemes in practice. Each one of those are very important to team success, but coaches and players must also remember to get in some skill development time.
I've been conducting skill development workouts since 2001. I actually wanted to become a college coach and never even thought about doing skill development workouts for a living. When my basketball career was over and I moved back home to finish school I was approached by the University of Central Arkansas' head men's basketball coach about working out one of the team's returning point guards. I have to admit I had no idea of what to do. So I just put him through the same drills I did when I prepared for the upcoming season. We only met a few times but that gave me enough to wet my appetite.
