July 13 | The 3-Point Play
FLEET = “FLoored fEET.”
Never leave your feet on defense. Not even to block a pass, not even to block a shot. For every pass you block by jumping, two will get by you, for every shot you block, twice you will foul unnecessarily.
A great leaper might be permitted to jump occasionally, but then again a great leaper might just be the one who needs this rule more than anyone. Because great leapers have the tendency to want to show off their leaping ability, consequently they are frequently in the air and not in good defensive position.
By staying on the floor, you stay FLEET, always ready to move, ready to respond immediately to each new position of the ball.
“I think leadership comes from integrity – that you do whatever you ask others to do.
I think there are non-obvious ways to lead. Just by providing a good example as a parent, a friend, a neighbor makes it possible for other people to see better ways to do things.
Leadership does not need to be a dramatic, fist in the air and trumpets blaring, activity.”
– Scott Berkun
“Doing hard things is how we exercise our bodies, our minds, and our faith. Small hard things are the individual repetitions — like a single push-up. They are seemingly insignificant by themselves but guaranteed to get results over time.”
– Alex Harris

When you are out on the court, is it clear to everyone looking on that you are intensely going about something you consider very important?
PGC Basketball provides intense, no-nonsense basketball training for players and coaches. Our basketball camps are designed to teach players of all positions to play smart basketball, be coaches on the court, and be leaders in practices, games and in everyday life.
