Playing sports growing up I learned through some really good coaches on how essential the basic fundamentals are to achieving success. We had a football coach that would spend the first week lining our defense up in position and then go from person to person asking them what their assignment is. He would reinforce that everyone just simply needs to fill their role and we don’t need any heroes on the field. There was a basketball coach that would spend the first 15 minutes of every practice running triple threat drills. The triple threat is the position you want to be in every time you catch the ball so you can either pass, dribble or shoot. Mastering these fundamentals could make average players good and good players great. They are essential.
