Thanks for starting the conversation Tyler. Great thoughts and share.

Teach better – some thoughts to add to the conversation.

Language and words matter…

1) Use teacher talk, not coach speak

Coach Speak= Play harder, talk on defense, Come on, lets go

Teacher Talk= Sprint from rim to rim – don’t run.   On defense, you should say “Ball, Gap or Help” – have a conversation with the on-ball defender if you are helpside and let them know specifically what you are doing…instead of Come on or Let’s go, use specific questions or commands of what you want to see done…Another common phrase is “REBOUND” or you could say….”When the shot goes up, we MUST check or box out our man/woman.”
