Coaching Background

See Swiss Hoops, and a Coaching Bio.

I am a big believer in using the power of the internet to coach, which is why I founded this coaching website Hoopsplaybook.ca (in 2007), a Coaches Library on Google Drive, over 250 YouTube playlists, and a Hoopsplaybook Facebook page (which has 568 followers as of November 2022). I am also founder and admin for the Ottawa Valley Basketball Coaches Facebook Group. These internet resources are very useful in supporting basketball coaches locally, nationally and abroad.

I have been Technical Director of the Nepean Blue Devils since 2009, a position that has entailed running or organizing coaching clinics, running competitive tryouts, attending practices to assist coaches, and providing resources to coaches by email and, more recently, via the Coaches Corner on the club website.

Player development is one of my priorities. Pages on this website that show the attention to detail for skills and drills include Keys to Shooting, Dribbling Series, Off-Season Workouts, and Skills Checklists. I have also extensively covered individual and cutting-edge skills on my Facebook page, examples include posts on Kobe Pivoting, Jab Steps, Stop Separation, and Split (Drop) Stance (links are to embedded posts on this website).

Another priority is youth basketball, and the Youth Basketball section of hoopsplaybook.ca is a gateway to comprehensive coaching resources, including Jr. NBA, Steve Nash Youth Basketball Program, Mega Hoops, and Gooroo Youth Basketball. These are supplemented by my own youth coaching resources such as drills and skills checklists.up
