This site was created to provide an inside look into the pursuit toward becoming a collegiate head basketball coach. The objectives of my site are twofold:
- To share my experiences throughout my coaching career
- To engage with all basketball enthusiasts/coaches alike surrounding the game of basketball with content related (not limited) to skill development, program philosophy, and professional opportunity
Is a representation of the journey throughout the coaching profession. This path will focus on basketball to start, as that is primarily my specialization. However, regardless of the sport, entertaining a coaching career is unique. Everyone has a story to tell, and even more important is anyone can learn from it. The paths to entry are vast; yet, once you are a part of the profession there tends to be a lot of commonalities. You will find that the coaches community becomes a very small world the more you connect. The Climb is about sharing those experiences. How do we become better as coaches? And how does our development as coaches create for better opportunities for others? Take part in sharing the game and the journey.
One of the greatest things history can teach us is what not to do and how to avoid repeating those same mistakes allowing us to educate those that follow. Learning is a 2-way street – those that experience and those that listen to the experience. So, take from any experiences shared and contribute with comments or emails of your own. The goal from all of this is to hopefully create an interactive coach’s community empowering all who are passionate about the game an opportunity to grow to become better coaches, players, and students of the game.
