Youth Basketball Tips - How To Motivate & Encourage Players With Bob Bigelow
In the video clip from Bob Bigelow's Coaching Youth Basketball The Right Way, Bob talks about some great ways to motivate less-skilled players.
As Bob mentioned in the video, it's very important to make everybody feel like they're part of the action even if they're not scoring points. This is not only vital at the youth level, it's vital at every level.
Here are some stats that you can track to make everybody feel involved in the team's outcome:
- Gretzky's / hockey assist
- Pick / screen set

- Catchable passes
- Successful box outs
- Hand up on defense

As Bob mentions, make sure to point out these things that the players do well as this will motivate everybody to do more of the little things.
