Jeff Osterman Associate Head Women’s Coach at The University of South Florida shares his 28 years of coaching experience and knowledge to help make a difference
Definition of Coach
The ability to connect with people and being able to teach them, getting them to a place where they couldn’t get on their own
Making an impact beyond he court when the ball stops bouncing
Thought for the day
There is nothing more powerful than a humble person with a warrior spirit… with a bigger purpose
Didn’t develop kids off the court enough, didn’t get to know the kids he coached enough
Shooting: Elbow is a laser gun (point at the target), then rest your laser on the table (starting position), now chest to chin (elbow movement), Double snap (elbow and wrist)
Maximize space & use as many people as you can (shouldn’t use some parents). Make it as high energy as possible. When you get to practice put everything in a box and leave it outside the practice
Coaching Tool Box
Communication, between players, between coaches, between everyone involved with the team. It’s not just talking but listening too.
Kids learn in so many different ways. They walk through, give it to them on paper, and video them teaching the play to help all.
