1 Hey Coach,
My basketball coach can't coach. All we do is lose. We have talented players but our coach only tells us to do shots the whole practice and we never learn plays. That is why we are 1-4. We nearly won a few of those games but we had no last second shot planned because our coach never taught us any. It's very frustrating.

Hey tojo311,

Coaches put a lot of time and energy into teaching kids and giving them an opportunity to play sports, so it's too bad you're blaming your coach for your team's losing ways. When a team loses, the coach always seems to get the blame. When a team wins, players always seem to get the credit. Instead of complaining about how bad your coach is, why don't you think of ways that you can make yourself and your teammates better players. Perhaps if you made more shots earlier on in your games, you wouldn't have to worry about a plan for a last-second shot.

For beginner players, it's important to learn the basics of passing, shooting and ball-handling before learning complicated plays. This can often be frustrating for young players who get bored of shooting and ball-handling drills, when they'd rather be learning a back-door screen or pick-and-roll, like they see players do on TV. However, there's no point learning a pick-and-roll, if you don't know how to do a layup. Talk to your coach during practice and ask if he could spend some more time teaching the team a few more plays to use during games. But don't be surprised if he wants to spend more time during practice teaching your team the basketball basics.

Do you have a question on sports, P.E. class, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.
