"You're tall. Shouldn't you be good at basketball?"
Those were the words uttered to me by a 5th grade classmate of mine one day during recess. The funny thing is that I was tall but I was NOT good at basketball. However, my classmate's comment, although small and relatively harmless, would prove to be the catalyst that put me on a never-ending path towards fine-tuning my basketball skills.
There are a number of reasons why we strive to get better at our respective sports. My job is to make sure each player puts himself or herself in the best position to succeed. My training revolves around spending time on both the fundamentals and the specific areas that the player needs to address. In that regard, I do not take a cookie-cutter approach to training. Instead, I customize the training sessions to maximize value to the player.
