Teaching and practicing the fundamental skills of basketball is crucial to success.
But at the end of the day, if your athletes don’t have the speed and quickness to beat the defender to the basket or prevent them from getting there, then success will not come easy.
Fortunately, this type of speed and quickness can be taught.
And there is noone better at teaching the change of direction quickness required for basketball than Lee Taft.
In case you haven’t heard about Lee already, he is the Executive vice President and Contributor of the certification resource book for the International Youth Conditioning Association (IYCA).
Over the past 16 years, Lee has worked with many athletes of all ages and abilities. His major focus and passion has been on the development of young athletes. Nationally known as an expert in multi-directional speed techniques, Lee’s innovative technique to improve multi-directional speed is the up and coming teaching methods of many professionals.
In fact, I use many of the techniques I have learned from Lee with my own athletes.
If you deal with basketball players in any way, I strongly recommend you check out Lee’s product on Basketball Speed Progressions.
