I know that many of you are already thinking what does this book have to do with education? Here he goes with one of those off the wall posts that he does every so often.

I love education. I love coaching. I have been coaching basketball for 12 years and I get so excited every single year. Through my many years of coaching and learning to get better as a leader and coach I have found a deep respect for Brian McCormick.

His latest book The 21st Century Basketball Practice: Modernizing the basketball practice to develop the global player. is nothing short of amazing.

What I discovered while reading this book is how much teaching/education/parenting/learning/coaching are really all the same. I read the Kindle version and 61 highlights later I could interchangeably use the ideas from this book on the basketball court AND the classroom.

The overall vibe of the book is to help coaches learn to connect with the players, allow them to create their own learning, and provide guidance as needed. The way this happens is to provide voice and choice, quality feedback, and preparing the players/students for the real world situations. Sound similar to a classroom? Yes, it does.

I won't share all my highlights as you can connect with me on Amazon Kindle, but here are a couple that I think are very important to share.

1. Players make mistakes for three reasons. They don't understand. They aren't good enough yet to do what is asked of them or at least not good enough yet to execute consistently. They don't care.

Often in practice we focus on helping players understand and develop their skills. Sports are nice in that players not caring is not a huge issue(it does exist however) compared to the classroom.

Brian McCormick interrogates all of the lazy assumptions we as basketball coaches make. Bringing vast expertise in sports science, youth athletic development, and other research to bear, he then pieces together innovative, workable new approaches to developing basketball players and positioning teams for success. All of his books are worth owning, but The 21st Century Basketball Practice is especially valuable for coaches of any sport. It really crystallizes his research-based thinking about how to maximize player development and performance by ditching a lot of the traditional drills like the weave and default organizing principles like block segments. What do we as basketball coaches have to lose by experimenting with McCormick's small-sided games (instead of going through the motions with all those zig-zag slide drills, etc.)? Nothing at all, and our players will gain basketball intelligence, athleticism, and a lot more. This book encapsulates many of McCormick's most important insights. I also highly recommend Crossover, Developing Basketball Intelligence, and everything else he's written.

This is my third Brian McCormick book, and I cannot stop re-reading it and taking notes. It has truly opened my eyes to coaching, teaching, and developing players. It is science based and out of the box - in a good way. Some coaches may be close minded and not understand, but if you have a growth mindset and love learning you will make this purchase and I guarantee you will be glad that you did. Motor learning applies to all sports - retention and transfer is what we all strive for as coaches. Don't worry this book is not so sciency that you cannot understand it, as McCormick does a great job of using science but also making it simple for the normal reader, providing actual examples.

If you you really want to make your players better and reach their potential you have to train in a way that will allow you to do that. Many coaches do some of this without even knowing it, but find out how to take this and create a teaching advantage for your program, no matter the level. I'm a college coach with a growth mindset, and I can apply this in so many ways. Be a lifelong learner!!!

After reading 'Fake Fundamentals', I naturally wanted to adjust my practice regime. In doing so, I noticed that I needed a guide for reference and ideas. Thankfully, Brian released this book. It goes deeper than 'Fake Fundamentals' in that he shares some of his doctorate research and best practices for how to warmup properly, proper agility techniques and the best advice for how to structure practices and why. This is another book of Brian's that I recommend for all coaches. The depth and insight provided is more than worth 5 stars as you will constantly refer to this book as a guide throughout your season.

Brian is an EXCELLENT teacher and communicator. The philosophy espoused in this book is the cornerstone of a good program that attracts players and teaches them HOW to play. I've seen Brian demonstrate many of the concepts in this book at a Coaches clinic (online) and he is a master teacher / communicator. Teaching kids HOW to play...and have fun doing it...is what Brian is about and I read EVERYTHING he writes. No one challenges my thinking like him. BTW, I've been coaching for 10+ years...no one challenges my thinking more than Brian McCormick.
