Should a junior coach have a consistent style?
I'm coaching under 16 boys this year and would like some advice.
Throughout my first year of coaching I found that I didn't really have a coaching identity or game style.
I know there are some coaches who love double teaming and stuff and constantly pressuring the ball, but my first year I didn't have much of a strategy like that.
Offensively this season I'm thinking of making them run transition and try to get fast breaks, and if a fast break isn't available then they will run a structured offense. On defense I'm thinking an arrow press back to a man.
I guess it all depends on what your team is like and if they are even capable of running full court presses. This season I just want to have more of a game style that I make the players stick to.
Is this a good idea to enforce more in game strategies and play under a specific game style? I feel like all coaches have their philosophies about the game except for me.
