Thirteen Women Strong

Robert K. Wallace

University Press of Kentucky

This book describes its philosophy on basketball coaching, the coaching process, and insights into areas that are important. A very important role for the coach is to assist student-athletes in making their dreams come true. The coach's job is to help them achieve it. The coach does this by preparing them for competition and by giving them the tools to be successful at a high level. This may mean teaching them fundamentals, getting them in shape, or instilling mental toughness. All coaches should be passionate about the sport they coach. There is no greater reward to a coach than to have a group of young ladies go through the process of preseason conditioning, practice, and game preparation and then, on game day, to go out and play the game as “one” and be successful doing it.

Keywords:   philosophy, basketball, coaching, student-athletes, mental toughness, preseason conditioning, practice, game preparation
