A collection of X's and O's, clinic notes, film, and other things I like 


Don Meyer Clinic Notes

Shooting Target 185 = FG% + FT% + 3 pt%

– “When was the last time you kicked a kid out of practice?”

– When taking notes

* Use 1/3 of the note pad for you

* Use the other 2/3 of the pad for the speaker

– Get all of the good ideas, but you can’t use all of the good ideas; just use what is relevant to your philosophy, your kids, and your situation

– You have to adapt rather than adopt

– Figure out how you can lose a game, work on that element so it doesn’t happen in a game

– “You can’t play hard if you don’t coach hard”

– Kids today don’t play hard, they only want to watch the teams with all the talent”

– Need to do a needs assessment each year you coach

* “What is attractive and what should be?”

– Every year needs to be treated like it is your first year

– Smartest Thing To Do
