(1 Ratings)
Price: $8.99
The Mongoose System is not only a possible way to coach middle school and youth basketball, but the optimum way to coach at this level! This book has been written to teach you how to coach the System to middle school and youth basketball teams. Other books on the System have been organized for college and high school level teams, and we wanted to provide the lessons we have happily learned to you for your kids at the middle school level. We have written this book for you. You picked this book up because no matter how much you already know about basketball, you know there is more to learn. If you are a parent or teacher just starting out in coaching, you have picked this up to begin to learn to coach. If you have already coached for 5 years, you may be looking for a new approach to the game. If you have coached 10 years or more, you know that the more you know about the game, the more there is to learn.

    I've run the Mongoose System for the past two years since purchasing the book (and communicating a great deal with the coaches) with 4 different teams that in 2 different age groups (primarily U13 but also U15) and I can tell you it's as good a coaching decision as I've ever made. The players have a lot of fun playing it and I have a lot of fun coaching it. The key is that everyone plays and contributes: no one sits the bench and no one complains about playing time. I need to continue getting better at teaching the Mongoose System and there are some things that require adaptation depending on gym size (MS works better in a bigger gym, I find) and rule variations (such as when no zone press is allowed) but this has been a wonderful foundational philosophy for my Grade 7 boys, no question, because it ignites a love of the game above all else. The book requires a bit of editing and clean-up and better delineation among the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo approaches but I strongly recommend... More > that every youth coach read this book and give the Mongoose System serious consideration.< Less
