Catch-up Post

I haven't posted in a very long time again. Time has been flying by lately. It still seems like March to me, but maybe that's because the weather hasn't been great recently.

There have been a lot of ups and downs. A couple of my players have quit. Both were unnecessary and could have easily been worked out if they were handled differently. There isn't much you can do except move on. It is like one of your best players breaking his leg mid-season. It won't do you any good to dwell on it. You just have to move on and adjust to it just like any adversity in life. Concentrate on the solution and not the problem.

I have talked to a few Junior Colleges about being an assistant for this upcoming season. I received a lot of positive feedback with a couple of places being very interested in my services. Even if I don't receive a job from it I have made a few new contacts from my exploration.

Camp season is almost here. I'm scheduled to work three weeks for the Brad Stevens Basketball Camp for Butler University. I'm also booked to work the Notre Dame camp at the end of June. I'm still waiting to hear from Purdue University to see if they need more workers for their first camp. They asked me to work their end of June camp, but that's when I am working the Notre Dame camp. In July, I am booked to work 2 sessions for Five-Star Basketball camp and I'm waiting to hear from Central Michigan and Michigan for the very end of July. I look forward to the experiences.

Work those camps!

Hustle while you work. When you are coaching your team at camp, don't sit down. Show passion!

Take a player from the college camp team (i.e., ND camp, grab Tory Jackson)and ask them if they want to get some shots up at lunch or after camp. Rebound and pass to them.

You have to show people you care...
