Jerry Petitgoue provides the ideal practice plan for any feeder system wanting to put the fun back in fundamentals.

Coach Petitgoue begins by covering several key points that should be emphasized with all coaches in your feeder program. He discusses:

  • Length of practice
  • Monthly practice plan
  • The appropriate number of games to be played at each grade level
  • After a brief warm-up, Petitgoue begins practice with shooting fundamentals showing you drills to teach the proper shooting technique and correct common shooting mistakes. His "spin bounce" technique encourages young shooters to step into the shot from the all-important set position. Petitgoue uses his enthusiastic approach to demonstrate both individual and partner shooting drills.

    Petitgoue shows you how to incorporate the agility ladder and crazy balls into practice to improve your young player's footwork and coordination. He also includes six core ball-handling drills that are a fun way to build ball handling confidence and skill.

    Petitgoue next provides various dribbling drills that incorporate the jump-stop, pivoting and how to protect the basketball. Box-out technique and outlet passes are discussed in detail as Petitgoue demonstrates a simple, yet effective rebounding drill. Petigoue ends his practice with "lightening," a game that is both fun and competitive as it improves young player's skill level.

    Start your young players out on the right foot with a practice plan that will build strong basketball fundamentals.

    The earlier review provoked me to add a comment. Last year was my first coaching third graders. Once we got past the fundamentals, I was looking for something to make practices more interesting and provide tools/ideas to help them grow. They are a girls team. I thought Coach P did a fine job and I would recommend to anyone coaching this level. As far as fundamentals and organization, ck out Ray Lokar's set - it is excellent ... and always have Pistol Pete's DVDs in your 'arsenal' - phenomenal!

    Cover indicates practice for 1-4 grade. In the practice Coach Petitgoue uses 10 and 11 year olds with strong skills. It simply defeats the purpose and intent of the dvd's premise. Show the practice with the correct age group. As a youth basketball director I was very disappointed on many levels. If you are starting a program for 1st - 4th, show the kids using size appropriate basketballs at height appropriate baskets, most of the drills demonstrated would be difficult at best for the average 1/2 grade kid. Lay-ups need to be broken down way more than demonstrated. Footwork, for example, should deal with jump stop, stride stop, pivoting, etc. It does have some skills that would work with 6 & 7 year olds, but not many. Passing was not even covered. It is obvious coach knows what he is doing, but this dvd, as a tool for youth basketball coaches ages 6-9 is weak at best......it is adequate for 10/11 year olds.
