Hello there sir/madam,
I am new here, so greetings!
I am quite new in coaching
Got some experiences in planning for training for my teammates and my team
they can handle fundamental skills, so i planned was for improving skills, learning new moves etc...

But recently, I have to coach a couple of students, aged 13 and up
but most of them do not have experience in basketball(only 1 -2 had played basketball before)
so what i was planning to do is to build up their fundamental skills, e.g passing, shooting, layup, dribbling
are there any plans, ways and advices that can i teach them on learning fundamentals?

thx^^

Your plan regarding working on the fundamentals is a good one... there are plenty of drills on this site... go visit what they have. Use them wisely.... keep your drills short... 6-8 minutes. That way they wont become bored.
They are young so be patient with them and make sure they have some fun.
Have a well thought out PRACTICE PLAN
Passing
Dribbling
Shooting
Defense skils
Offensive skills
Screening and reading screens (to name a few)

Good luck.

If you mean EFFORT by gesture... thats the first step..... the outcome will happen after you practice and they get a lot of repitions.

As coaches we all want the outcome immediately... doesn't always happen that way. Be patient - they are young kids... it takes time to teach things properly. Just keep woriking on those fundamentals.... Good luck.

As for shooting.... FORM is the first thing you need to teach. There are many sites on the net that tell you how to do that.. I'm sure that Jeff and Joe have it here on theirs.

OR you can check out George Lehman and BEEF.....

Fundamentals first before you will see any measurable improvement... on anything that you do in the game.

The form, or gesture, of what you do is the very first point of emphasis. As much as possible I try also add the mindset to what the skill is they learning. For something like ball handling I would talk about being explosive and aggresive with my moves. I would also help them to see the game situation of the skill they are learnining. Kids seem to learn better that way. It is the why in what we do.
