This section was designed to share basketball resources for coaches and players to help them become their best. I personally use all of these products, most of them on a weekly basis.

No one is born a natural leader. Great leaders are created through their experiences and practice. I believe that when you know better, you can do better. Out of all the basketball resources for coaches that I’ve suggested, the leadership books might be the most influential in helping your players become their best.
To be a great leader, you must understand the language of leadership. The Leadership Commitment takes players through the 3 Levels of Leadership, teaching them words and actions of leaders.
Every day players get to do a 5-minute ball handling routine with a pro, and every week they learn a new leadership quality and how to apply it.
Here’s a list of basketball resources for coaches to use with their players. Not all equipment is created equal… while some of these items might cost more than their cheaper competitors, I’ve found it’s worth it to pay for quality.
I bought a Dr. Dish because if I only have 15 minutes to shoot, I don’t want to spend 10 minutes chasing down rebounds. Imagine trying to learn any other skill and having to run between every repetition.
That’s why the very first purchase I made after hanging the basketball hoop in my garage was buying a Dr Dish. In the same amount of practice time, I can get 5 times more shots up. It’s been worth every penny because my kids & I use it all the time.
Vibration has an effect on ground substance, improving its viscoelasticity. Simply applying vibration to areas of the body that are experiencing bind can improve the relative motion of our soft tissue.
Hypervolt improves range of motion, promotes circulation and is so quiet! But don’t take my word for it, try it yourself! Find an area where you’re experiencing bind in your movement and apply vibration for a few minutes.
Function is variable and dynamic, which can make it difficult to communicate directions to players. Procedos has created an environment where you can quickly and clearly coach 3D movement.
Whether I’m doing a movement assessment or training an athlete, my Procedos mat gets used every week!
Owning a few crucial pieces of training equipment allows you to never miss a workout. SKLZ equipment is versatile and affordable.
With only a Trainer Med Ball and Pro Bands, you can get a killer basketball-specific workout at home.
Here is a list of must-haves for your kitchen & backpack. Basketball nutrition is an area that requires forethought and preparation. The list below is what I recommend to help my players fuel their performance.
Athletes need quick and convenient snacks that can be stored in a gym bag. On a weekly basis I’m eating Epic’s Performance Bars and Meat Bars.
Read their nutrition labels and you’ll understand every ingredient on the list. Not only do they taste good and improve performance, they’re also healthy for you.
