Developing basketball players learn when using their skills in action through real life situations. At Star Basketball Academy in Dubai, our coaches understand the importance of providing these fixtures as a way of engaging players to practice skills, tactics and decision making. This helps players to apply their knowledge and skill in a dynamic and engaging environment and our experienced USA coaches understand that games also serve valuable coaching opportunities.
How coaches use fixtures to support and improve the development of players:
- Coaches guide players in tactical play that supports children to apply their knowledge of basketball and to reinforce what has been practised in their basketball sessions.
- Coaches use a reflection of the game performance to help guide players for further basketball development in tactical and technical skills. Coaches are always supportive and only use a positive approach in goal setting with their students.
- Positive language and encouraging communication skills are modelled in our coaches as we believe in building up a player’s confidence not tearing a player down.
- Fixtures provide parents, players and coaches the opportunity to have communication, show respect for one another and to celebrate the skills and confidence of each player.
At Star Basketball Academy we strive to promote our values during our fixtures of having an encouraging environment, promoting fair play, sportsmanship in a team and leading a healthy lifestyle. We also focus on having fun and enjoying time with families, friends and coaches.
