The Championship Feeder System - Youth Basketball Practice for Grades 1-4
on November 10, 2011
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.
