From Joe Crispin:

One of the things I have realized over the past several years of

coaching is that kids need more opportunities to simply play the game of

basketball. Specifically, they need opportunities to play without the

oversight of coaches, parents, or anyone else telling them what to do.

They essentially need the opportunity to coach themselves (and even call

fouls themselves!). From a developmental standpoint, this is absolutely

essential. Though working on specific skills is vital, it is not enough

to become a great basketball player. You need opportunities to

experiment with the skills you are trying to development. And the best

opportunity is "free play."

But most kids don�t really know how to structure their own games, so

we want to teach them. That�s what our "Just Play" week is all about.

Though they will be working on skills and even running some drills, it

is all game-based instruction. The games themselves are the teachers. We

will play 3 on 3, 4 on 4, 1 on 1, �Steal the bacon�, a week-long

league, "King of the Court." And we will do so in a variety of different

ways. Your kids will love it. I know mine will. And most importantly,

the week should lead them to want to play the game more and to take the

games they learn to their own backyards and local playgrounds. Because

that is where the real progress takes place!
