Jay Bilas' Assessment of our Game! Too Much Coaching not enough Teaching!
We are teachers and coaches of the fundamentals of the Game! Check out what Jay Bilas thinks about why we need more focus on fundamentals and less focus on games played at the Youth Level of Basketball!
Subject: America needs more 'teaching' from its coaches
I have been watching more high school and junior basketball than ever, and I am worried about what I see. The canary in the United States' basketball coal mine has not yet died, but it is starting to teeter on its perch.
No reasonable basketball person can refute the fact that the fundamental skills of American players are slipping, and so is the American game. I believe a primary reason is an increased emphasis on coaching the game, and a decreased emphasis on teaching our kids how to play the game.
Pete Newell, the legendary coach and teacher, has often said that basketball is "over-coached and under-taught". He is absolutely right, and that is finally catching up with us, as is the rest of the basketball world.
What Coaches are Saying about Three Point Hoops Camps and Instruction!
“What makes Three Point and Tom Kane special is their genuine concern for youth and the positive approach to teaching basketball with an emphasis on focusing on the fundamentals of the game.” Tom Sterner, NBA Coach Dallas Mavericks
“I support Three Point and Tom Kane as a quality basketball organization. Tom’s enthusiasm for the game has driven him to be an excellent teacher of the game. Tom’s specialty is Player Development, from shooting to defense, Tom can take players to the next level.”
Lisa Nuxol Wilson, former Asst. Women’s Coach, University of Alabama
"I've known Tom Kane my entire career in Women's Basketball which over 30 years. His commitment to quality teaching, supervision and strong competitive environment plays out in all he does with Three Point Basketball camps, clinics and individual instruction. Tom's focus on fundamentals is translated to players at all levels, from middle school to the college player. I recommend Tom's programs with great enthusiasm".
Pat Knapp, former Head Women's Basketball Coach, Georgetown University 18 years, University of Pennsylvania 5 Years
"I have been a head coach at every level from high school girls to college men and have finally found a camp that teaches all the little things that are so overlooked by most. It is refreshing to hear Coach Kane and his staff using terminology and technique that every seasoned veteran can appreciate."
Coach Jerry Ellis
"When I think of someone who has the ability to teach the game of basketball to our young people that will allow them to be successful at any level, I think of Tom Kane. Tom is committed to developing the player to become the best possible player they can be and at the same time not lose site of what level they might be able to achieve. Our youth development could use more Tom Kane's which would make all our jobs easier as coaches."
Tom Jessee, Head Women's Coach, University of Tampa
