Aaron Dickson is from a coach’s family and has been around sport his whole life. He played hoops in college on a full scholarship (where he met his wife also a full ride hooper) and has been training basketball players for the last 10 years. Aaron is passionate about Jesus, his family, sport and discipleship which is why he started Pursuit Sports, a ministry that invites followers of Jesus (who speak sport at a high level) to disciple athletes through skill training. Pursuit Sports is very simple: we train skills for 30 min and do leadership development for 30 min in order to invest in athletes.
Hello everyone! I am a youth basketball coach. What are your thoughts on using an online service to help track your athlete’s progress? I created a quick survey to help gauge interest or feel free to comment your thoughts below!
We’ve known Coach David Dickson for many years and he recently mentioned the book InSideOut Coaching & the idea of transformational coaching. Youth basketball is struggling in many ways & at times we lose sight of “the why” of sports. So we asked Coach Dickson:
When in your career did you discover transformational coaching?
And why do you think it resonated with you?
Hi all, this is my first year coaching in a youth (age 10-12) rec league and I was looking for any tips you might feel like sharing.
A couple of the kids are advanced for their age, but the majority of them aren’t and because of that I’ll most likely stick to basics/fundamentals at first (things like 3 man weave, Mikan drill for post players). Any other drills you suggest that are necessary to teach in terms of development?
Also if you have suggestions on books and videos I could look at that could help me get a further understanding of the game from a tactical standpoint, I’d greatly appreciate it. Anything helps!
