PR9.NET October 13, 2010 - Chicago IL - A popular coaching website is celebrating its 5th year helping youth and high school teams achieve more success on the court.

Coach Pat Anderson, the owner and publisher of, has helped more than 3,000 coaches from across the United States and around the world with his A-B-C formula for practice planning success. Anderson's best-selling book,"Basketball Drills and Practice Plans" has become a cult favorite amongst recreational and competitive teams of all ages.

The program begins by teaching basic fundamentals, then uses a drill progressions to develop more advanced skills and techniques. It mixes in a variety of fun, creative drills (like the "Sumo Box Out Drill" and "Beat Michael Jordan") to keep youth athletes engaged in practice and enjoying themselves while they improve.

Pre-designed practice plans are provided, allowing the coach to save time and energy, and still deliver a top-notch training session for his or her team.

The results have been impressive. Willie Warren, head coach at Johnsontown Road Elementary in Louisville, KY reports, "Our team went from having a four win season to going 18-4. We were the Thanksgiving preseason champs, runners up in the League Championship, and the elementary citywide champs as well. Coach Pat's system made my practices easy to run, and gave the players skills to use in game situations."

Greg Entler of the Immaculate Conception Rams in Columbus, OH was amazed at his results, despite being in his first year coaching. "As a first time coach (fourth grade boys), I needed drills that would build the kids skills quickly. The drills and plans gave me an easy way to look like I knew what I was doing! In the end, we won our division and our 37 team tournament."

Escalon, California kids basketball coach Doug Danhoff says, "Using Coach Pat's strategies helped us finish the season undefeated at 25-0. We averaged 45 points a game and gave up 24. Despite not having a player over 5'9" on the starting team, we out rebounded every team we played."

"As the season wore on, I had high school coaches drop in on not just games, but practices. More than one told me that we looked like a short high school team."Coach Anderson, who many now praise as a "Guru" to the average, heavily promotes the use of "small-sided" competitive games in practice.

"Basic fundamental drills have their place," he says, "but the majority of your practice time should be spent in controlled game simulations. That can mean 2 on 2 drills, 3 on 3, even 5 on 5. But the key is to have your kids constantly competing to keep the energy level and spirit of the practice as high as possible."
