- Positive Coaching Alliance reminds coaches and players of the importance of time management. We all have many obligations outside of basketball, such as school, family time and other hobbies and activities. To enjoy basketball and become our best, we have to keep the sport in its proper perspective. For example, not enough time spent on school work may leave players ineligible for teams, so that they may not be able to play basketball at all. And neglecting family and other important matters may result in losing some of the support structure that is critical to every person’s success in basketball and all other aspects of life. A commitment to implementing time management skills helps keep all these important parts of our lives in balance.
