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.

Official coaching software of FIBA:
GENEVA (Coaches) – The International Basketball Federation FIBA has signed an agreement with the professional sports software provider SIDELINESPORTS to become the FIBA official coaching software. This was announced by both parties today. Sideline Sports has developed comprehensive computer software designed specifically to help coaches with organization, communication and analysis of their practice sessions and games.
The agreement foresees the delivery free of charge of the main product “Sideline Organizer Standard” to all FIBA approved coaches. In addition, every coach will receive a “Sideline Viewer”, a software where players can view instructional or feedback material, containing text, images, diagrams, animations and video. The “Sideline Viewer” will include video sequences from all the drills of the FIBA book “Basketball for Young Players”.
For a detailed description of all the features of the Sideline Sports products please go to www.sidelinesports.com
The FIBA approved coaches will receive the software package once they have registered with FIBA through their national federations. The registration process is regulated in the new FIBA Coaches Regulations, which can be downloaded here. The application form for FIBA approved coaches will be sent to the national federations soon.
“This agreement is a further step for FIBA in assisting the improvement of the coaching level worldwide”, said FIBA Secretary General Patrick Baumann. “Today’s players are increasingly ‘tech-savvy’. The school classroom is changing. Players expect to view teaching material in digital format. It may seem a giant leap, but the most important thing is that the material and media focus on the student rather than on the teacher.”
“We are very proud to partner up with the world governing body of basketball and its 212 member countries worldwide,” said Head of Development of Sideline Sports Bryniar Karl. “We are very confident that with our products we can contribute on large scale to the promotion and teaching of basketball at all levels. Our agreement will give access to state of the art educational material to a large number of coaches around the world. We combine the book, the video and the computer.”
