Youth Basketball Coaching Tips
A certified public accountant (CPA), Adam Greene is a longtime partner with Greene & Company LLP, a public accounting firm that has worked within the construction industry in Melville, NY, for more than 25 years. On top of his professional endeavors as a CPA, Adam Greene has served as a youth basketball coach.

Breakthrough Basketball, a youth basketball coaching guide, recently published an article for youth basketball coaches that discussed coaching strategies to avoid in order to foster player confidence. Among the strategies to avoid, Breakthrough Basketball recommended not coaching through fear, which often involves punishing players’ mistakes with time on the bench. The article asserts that this tactic can impact player confidence, prevent players from innovating on the court, and decrease a player’s enjoyment of the sport.

Along with eliminating fear-based coaching, Breakthrough Basketball recommends that coaches avoid over-coaching youth players. The article suggests that coaches take a simple approach to teaching young players about the game by using straightforward offensive plays while they develop a better understanding of basketball offensive strategies. If a coach tries to implement overcomplicated plays, the article suggests that players can become confused and tentative instead of confident.
