Developing basketball players learn when using their skills in action through real life situations. At Star Basketball Academy in Dubai, our coaches understand the importance of providing these fixtures as a way of engaging players to practice skills, tactics and decision making. This helps players to apply their knowledge and skill in a dynamic and engaging environment and our experienced USA coaches understand that games also serve valuable coaching opportunities.
How coaches use fixtures to support and improve the development of players:
- Coaches guide players in tactical play that supports children to apply their knowledge of basketball and to reinforce what has been practised in their basketball sessions in Dubai and Sharjah
- Coaches use a reflection of the game performance to help guide players for further basketball development in tactical and technical skills. Coaches are always supportive and only use a positive approach in goal setting with their students.
- Positive language and encouraging communication skills are modelled in our coaches as we believe in building up a player’s confidence not tearing a player down.
- Fixtures provide parents, players and coaches the opportunity to have communication, show respect for one another and to celebrate the skills and confidence of each player
