CoachTube

I found CoachTube online today and I have to say it is an awesome website. Think of it as Youtube for sports coaches and players or student athletes.  I am most specifically interested in how CoachTube relates to basketball. Click here to learn more: Coachtube.com/Basketball

There are videos on Lacrosse, Baseball, Basketball, Football, Tennis, Track and Field, Soccer, Hockey, Golf, Volleyball, Softball plus 20 other sports and categories.

If you live anywhere in the world and have an internet connection,  you can be taught how to play or coach by some of the best Coaches in the World!! This is truly an amazing idea and it is fairly cheap too.

If we just look at Basketball alone on CoachTube there are so many categories. There are ball-handling, drills, youth coaching, Defense, E-books, Shooting, Strategy, Women’s specific and Youth Basketball.

I can’t wait to buy a few of the titles and get learning myself. As a Coach I am never satisfied with my knowledge base. All of the best Coaches are always learning and striving to be better.

The best thing about CoachTube is that these are not just simple videos but rather complete Courses on the subject matter. If you have ever heard of the Khan Academy for academics, this kind of reminds me of that.

A few Specific examples

Let’s say you are a big fan of Michigan State’s Tom Izzo. You can learn straight from the man himself. He is a great coach and he’ll guide you through Defense and Rebounding lessons.

How about a Coaching Legend,the late Pat Summit. She was a phenomenal Coach. Her series is all about Coaching Women’s Basketball.

Another Coach who has numerous videos on CoachTube is my friend Lason Perkins. I would definitely check out what he has to offer. He does lots of stuff with European and International Basketball. Lason was also a guest on an Online Basketball Clinic we did a few years back at our Online basketball Clinics website.

That’s about all for now.  I will share more news about CoachTube in the next few days.

Basketball is King

The sport of basketball was invented by James Naismith, a Canadian by birth.

The game then and the game as it is now cannot be compared.

I don’t think Mr. Naismith could have envisioned what it has become today. It is such a fast paced game which often resembles ballet in the air.

Basketball is a great spectator sport but it’s also popular the world over for betting on. With the growth of online betting sites, many Canadian punters are also enjoying games like slots and roulette from the biggest casino operators. Sports betting is forecast to grow and grow with plenty of legal online Canadian options still out there.

You just gotta love Will Ferrel. I think this will be one funny basketball movie. You have a great day, San Diego.

The athletes who play the sport have to be superbly conditioned to play at the highest level. There is magic, grace and beauty to be watched.

The more you play the game the more you realize that this is true. I have never had as good of a workout as when I have just played in a hard game or practice.

You can play alone, with 1 other person or any combination of players. It really is fun. If you have not tried it you have to “give it a go”. I guarantee you will be hooked for life.

As you can probably tell I love the sport and have done so from the very first time I played it back in the 3rd or 4th grade. I remember going to a Harlem Globetrotters game and I was amazed at the tricks they could do with a ball.

If you have never been to a “Trotters” game I encourage you to go because you will have such a great time. In fact one of my friends in the is former Trotter Mel Davis who now lives in Vancouver.

We will keep adding to this page as time goes on with interesting hoop stories and information about this great game that is just booming in popularity.
