"Thanks" goes out to the coaches who responded to this week's Coaches Share. Your input helps us all. All coaches are invited to help with the share each week.
This week's Coaches Share question: Coaches are always making changes with their
teams/programs during the off-season; some big, some small. Some
changes are philosophical, some relate to practice, and some with X's
and O's. Which changes are you most excited about with your
team/program for this season?
"I am mostly excited about the new roster we will have this year."
"We made a program-wide decision to make some changes to our man-to-man defense. We are now going to be more of a pressure team in the passing lanes. We had been more of a gap control team, and it worked fine for us. But we are going to take more of an aggressive philosophy in hopes of creating more turnovers. We need to speed up the game."
~Coach R.T. (TN)
"We are going to be making an effort to shoot more in our practices. Trying to incorporate as much shooting with drills that have other focuses to it. Our biggest question mark coming into the season is our ability to score so hopefully this will help."
~Coach Mark T. (TX)
"Our coaching staff added another coach. I am very excited at the options we will now have with having another coach in the gym."
"The biggest changes we are making this year are with our side out of bounds plays. We have a series of them we are going to use that will give us more quick scoring options."
~Coach B (IL)
