Coach Hal Wissel covers the entire progression from fundamentals to team play needed to become a complete player. With 12 steps total, this third edition provides a lot of new information for the player. Greater emphasis is being placed on the open or spread offense, dribble penetration, and the ability to draw and kick to three-point shooters. The pick-and-roll also called the ball screen is one of the oldest plays in basketball, but it is now being used more than ever. The pick-and-roll has become popular as a method for gaining dribble penetration and then drawing and kicking-either kicking in to a player near the basket or kicking out to a three-point shooter.

Learn to listen more than you talk. A player wants to feel comfortable with you and have confidence in you before they work with you. At times you will coach a player that will feel that you think he cannot shoot. Always start with what the player is doing well. Coach each player individually. You do not want a player to learn everything that you know about shooting.

You want each player to learn what he wants to know in terms of improving his shot. However, you should be able to answer every question the player will ask. Tell the player, "I want to get you to shoot with confidence and rhythm.

I want to work on that mechanic that helps your shot the most. You can learn a lot about a player from his answers. Ask the player, "When you are shooting well, what are you doing? There is no wrong answer to this question. If a player responds with the answer, "I just shoot! When a player answers, "The ball is going in! Keep it simple. Keep your instruction brief, simple, yet inspiring.

Players lose interest if your coaching is long, too detailed, or boring. For the most part, a player is not progressing while you are talking. Get the player shooting. Be positive and keep encouraging the player to know that he can and will achieve his goals. Motivate the player to consistently do what it takes to reach his goals and never let him think for one moment that he will have anything less than success.

In fact, only one player or a few players may be interested in receiving your coaching. Once you have success with one or more players, others will become interested in how you can help them. Never stop coaching, When a player sees that you care about him, are positive, enthusiastic, energized and tenacious, it will inspire him to reach new heights.

Above all, make it enjoyable! You become a better coach to a player when he sees that you have high spirits, a bright smile and a sense of humor. Edited from: Wissel, Hal. Basketball: Steps to Success. Second edition.
