Although the blog might seem a bit sparse right now, a lot of hard work and planning is going on behind the scenes. I think that it’s a shame when you see blogs that don’t have consistent content. It’s for this reason that I am not launching posts until August 1st. Once that date comes, I plan on having a post every day for my readers.
Once we do launch on August 1st, postings will cover a wide array of topics to help out coaches of all levels. I love feedback and welcome readers to submit questions, topics they would like to see covered, and opinions on past posts. Weekends posts will typically request questions from readers and also allow me to advertise my consulting service for coaches. August 1st through October 31st posts will cover a variety of different Basketball topics from a broad perspective. Once high school season starts, I will be switching the format to almost a journal of what is going on with my team, how these experiences can help other coaches, and allow people to see if what I am suggesting actually works.
I look forward to seeing my readership grow and am very excited about this new venture.
