Share with the players the importance of having fun and remind everybody that the Jr. NBA is all about enjoying the game of basketball!
Remember, coaches should model this value by smiling, giving high-fives, and running practice with positive energy.
The Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) reminds us that keeping basketball fun for players is key to their success as players and as people. After all, if the sport is not fun players may stop playing, miss fully developing their athletic potential, and ultimately miss out on learning life lessons through basketball. However, as long as we keep the game fun, their love of the game will grow and they will develop as players and people.
