Roy Williams, Head Basketball Coach, University of Kansas - "Never before have I seen a book that has as much potential to help developing young players..I would recommend it to every coach & parent who is guiding developing players to their hoop dreams." Basketball is an increasingly popular sport. Yet, as scores of kids compete against their peers for spots & playing time on the school team, they come away from the experience feeling completely defeated when they do not make the team. Many times they do not have the motivation to tryout again. This book provides a step-by-step approach to making the basketball team & improving skills necessary for realizing one's potential. It gives specific advice on how to approach training for tryouts, concentrating on both physical & mental fundamentals crucial to achieving success on the basketball court. It is also a very good book for those already on the team wanting to improve their skills. Whether the student-athlete is trying out for the junior high, high school or college team, this book will definitely give them the advantage.
