I started this website while coaching in Switzerland at Versoix Basket and Ecole Internationale de Genève (see Swiss Hoops). The offensive and defensive systems, tactics, skills and drills will hopefully be useful to basketball coaches and players too.

Systems and drills in bold are among my favourites (including drills used with kids), bold red shows select favourites (staples of practice, see Go-To Drills). Recent additions are highlighted (e.g., At-Home Training), and as starting points see Fundamentals and Youth Basketball.

Below is a rolling list of latest additions, see the Index to find drills or systems by source (e.g. a DVD), and see Links for a Facebook group, other coaching websites, and YouTube channels. There is also a Coaches Library on Google Drive.
