Description - Coaching Basketball by Jerry Krause
Coaching Basketball, 3rd edition, is a revision of one of the bestselling basketball instructionals on our backlist. First published by Masters Press in 1990, it has sold more than 60,000 copies in two editions. This is a comprehensive basketball coaching book that includes concepts and ideas from a wide range of basketball coaches, including many noteworthy NBA and NCAA Division I coaches as well as from the NCAA Division II, III, NAIA, community college, and high school levels. It covers fundamentals, offensive and defensive strategy, conditioning, and coaching foundations, including coaching philosophy, running a program, and recruiting. At the time of its first publication, it developed a devoted following from basketball coaches around the country because it contained more than 50 years of contributions from NABC coaches, organized into one comprehensive coaching volume. The sales momentum has continued since we acquired Masters in '98, but there have been significant coaching changes and some of the articles have less application today than they did 7 years ago. Jerry has gathered several new original articles to replace the outdated pieces.
Refreshing revising this title should secure its continued success as a coaching classic.
