Station Drills – Why use them?
Why use Youth Basketball Skills – Station Drills? First of all it allows coaches to teach multiple skills/drills to every player on the team. Secondly, Station Drills help with getting the team the conditioning it needs. Station Drills do not take up that much time (only 12-18 minutes depending on the amount of stations). So coaches can teach much needed skills to the whole team, and not take up too much practice time to do it. Youth Basketball Station Drills are very common and have proved to be very successful in developing player skills (when done correctly)
