I haven’t had much to write about regarding my team. We have a three week break before our next game, and I decided to give the boys a week off. We needed this time to get ourselves a mental recharge and obviously to heal some bumps and bruises we have incurred. I definitely needed the break as I have a total staff of 3 guys (including myself) and have had a lot of the work fall on to my…Continue
Hey Coaches, if you are looking for a FANTASTIC role model athlete who plays with heart, then make sure the kids you coach are aware of Jason Terry, guard for the Dallas Mavericks.

1. Keep it Simple Stupid (K.I.S.S.). It’s easy to get caught up with all the fancy-pantsy methods of training because those are fun, exciting, and new-age. But, the fact is, most of what works turns out to be the same old stuff that has worked for years: heavy, hard lifting on basic…Continue
