C.J. DavisCoaching MethodsNovember 28th, 2018Coaching ObservationThe first practice I observed was the Jackson Polar Bears run by head Coach Tim Debevec. A high school basketball team from the Massillon, Canton area that is known for a tradition of winning. They have 2 state championships in the past 10 years and the most recent in 2017. I was at their practice November 20th just days before their first game. The practice started with the team shooting around, and Coach Debevec would walk around and joke with some players. He took a few shots of his ownand helped rebound for players. The whistle blew and the team gathered at half court. Coach Debevec spoke to the team and gave them his goals for the practice. The focus was on beating the press and playing defense in transition. The reason being was this was the what they were expecting to see in a few days from their opponent. They started practice in a stretch led by an assistant coach, while Coach Debevec sat back and observed. After the stretch they broke up into drills led by the assistant coaches. Coach Debevec walked around and even ran sometimes to get in a drill with his players. He challenged players to beat him by passing not by scoring on him. When asked about this his response was “we have a lot of talented guys on the team and a lotof guys who can shoot. We aren’t big physically so we cannot focus winning one on onematchups. We must pass the ball and get the defense out of position and hit the open
