Tip by Mary Franke Fort Wayne, IN.
Always have a dry erase board courtside for impromptu illustrations of concepts. Many of our young people are visual leaners who benefit from the occasional chart/drawing. It can help with keeping score, too.
My Favorite use? Make a tic-tac-toe board and challenge two teams in a drill. Each time a side/team wins or meets a goal, they put their X or O on the board. They battle out until they win the tic-tac-toe game. The tic-tac-toe idea I got from another coach-- possibly Bill Neville?
