@Nate WadeI look forward to your future share!

Another beneficial point that I think we have here is zone defense is prohibited for u14s and younger.  And full court press was not permitted if your team was ahead by 10 – personally, i would prohibit full ct press and trapping for our primary aged players as very few have the ball handling or passing skills to successfully navigate it.  Most of our players don’t start until age 9 or 10 (another point we need to address here because kids are already committed to football or netball for girls; I’m lucky to have a good number of u8s but not many clubs are interested in coaching that age group).

I’m working on a fundamental skills development guide for our club that identifies what skills (tangible & intangible) we ideally would like to develop by certain ages/stages.  It certainly sounded easier to do than I am finding! I would love to see what other folk have done in that area.

Keep up the fantastic work!
