“The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.”
― Abraham Lincoln
During our preseason camp I posted a thought on incrementalism. Incrementalism is making changes by degrees or in small steps. I really like the website www.aplayaday.com; it’s perfect for learning something new in this game everyday. The videos presented daily (Monday through Friday) are essentially mini-clinics. While you may not use that particular play or concept, you have a chance to learn about it, because at some point an opponent may use it.
Because the videos are short, you can watch them while having your morning coffee, during your lunch break, or even between classes. The effect is you are learning or getting more detail on five concepts a week. Sometimes it’s tougher to carve out time to sit down and watch an hour long clinic video, but this concept of the mini-clinic is much simpler.
If you have an idea that you would like to share, there are simple instructions for submitting your own material and helping others make this game better. I submitted a video. It’s up as a free sample that can be viewed here.
The sample is from my iBook. My iBook 101+ Pro Style Pistol Offense Plays provides concepts that can be utilized in any offense, not just the pistol. The interactive multimedia book contains 229 pieces of dynamic content and q total of 30 minutes of game film. I have received some great feedback from coaches who adapted all or some of those ideas in 2013. Get 101+ PRO STYLE PISTOL OFFENSE PLAYS for your iPad or Mac from the iBookstore.
