“Become your own best guide”
In the media/information age of toda, there are literally hundreds of choices for basketball materials – books, pamphlets, videos, CDs, DVDs and software. It is important for each coach to select materials that are right for them. Some important criteria for this process are:
Be cautious of getting materials from “name” coaches. The best products are the best regardless of who produced them. Find materials that fit you and your program. Apply the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple / Simple) It is more important to focus on what your players know, understand and appreciate. Remember, it isn’t what you know but what your players know that is critical. Find ideas that you can adapt to your philosophy and system – not adopt total packages (unless you are a beginning coach with limited knowledge).
A final reminder: become your own best guide related to other peoples opinion of your program and coaching. The only test you need to pass is the mirror test – be able to look yourself in the mirror each day. Remember to not take criticism personally – it is only someone else’s perception of what is going on. You have to listen to others with an open mind but need to become strong enough and confident enough to do what is truly right (in your heart and mind).
