Top of PageOrland High School Basketball Philosophy

        Developing an overall philosophy for our basketball program is important.  It gives the coaches, players and administration an idea of what we are about, what we are trying to achieve, and how we are going to accomplish our goals.  My philosophy goes beyond just playing basketball at a high level.  It is producing solid players who are also good citizens.  Players will be given every opportunity to succeed on and off the floor, in the classroom and in life.

           I believe that you must look at the abilities of your players and adjust accordingly as a coach.  Year to year teaching and coaching at a small public school, my personnel will change sometimes greatly.  If we are blessed with talented big men, it is my job to develop an offense suited to those types of players.  On the other hand if we have a small team who is quick, it would make no sense as a coach to run an offense best suited for big men.  After determining what we have as players, we will then adjust to our strengths.

           Basketball is unlike any sport in the world.  Played at its highest level, basketball players demonstrate teamwork, communication and dedication to a goal.  We will always be prepared to play, and will take the time necessary to prepare to play at the highest possible level.  The path towards perfection lies in the fundamentals of the game.  Our players must realize what they have to do in certain situations during the game, and how to adjust to their opponents to minimize the opposition's strengths. 

           I firmly believe that you cannot play the perfect game of basketball.  We can only strive for perfection.  I feel that the team to make the fewest mistakes has put themselves in a great position to win basketball games. Period.  To achieve this, we must practice smartly by being organized and efficient.  We must put the effort in on the practice floor, and that will translate directly to games.  Effort and hustle will mask quite a few weaknesses that a team might have.

           I also realize the great responsibility that has been given to the coaches in our program.  We are responsible to get our players ready to compete at a high level, and more importantly we have the responsibility to produce players of good character.  We also will promote integrity and a solid work ethic.  I feel that all of these things, while not easily achieved, are indeed attainable.

           I believe that players respond best in an environment that promotes learning and respect.  If the coach truly believes in the development of his players and demonstrates that he cares to them, it will only promote success within the program.  We will always be the hardest working players on the court, and our players will know that we as coaches will do all we can to make them the best people they can be.
