Summer vacation is necessary.
I know parents hate how long it is,
But I can’t wait to recharge
And learn a few new things during the hot months.
This year summer offered a chance to coach basketball.
I dug out my old memories
Of motion offenses and started thinking.
What defense will we play?
How about pressing?
Pressure is where it’s at,
Turnovers win in high school.
We will get after it
Taking the game to them old school,
How about conditioning?
No monkey drills,
I’ll take what I can
From my old coach.
Some strategy, some practice ideas
I hope the guys become a team like I knew.
