I always will communicate with the client on what their goals are and what they are looking to get out of the session before commencing the session. I always begin with a warm-up before each session. The warm up focuses on ball handling and coordination. Usually, I go into more specific drills such as shooting drills where athletes will shoot around the paint focusing on precision and technique. As I focus on forwards and posts, I like to focus on finishing inside the key and finishing through contact as this is a crucial element of the game. Next, I have athletes focus on different finishes under the rim such as; hook-shot, power layup, floater, euro step, etc as it is important to be able to finish in multiple ways. And lastly, I always finish a session with a cool down and constructive feedback and homework that the client can learn and work on for the next session.
