WYC 036 - Keith Van Horn -10 Year NBA Veteran talks Coaching Youth Basketball
Today’s guest is keith van horn. Keith was the ESPN NCAA Player of the Year in 1997, and went on be drafted with the 2nd pick in the NBA draft. He spent 10 years in the NBA, averaged over 16 points per game, and went to NBA finals with the New Jersey Nets and the Dallas Mavericks. He currently serves as the Founder and Executive Director for Colorado Premier Basketball Club which is the largest youth basketball club in the state of Colorado, and works with over 1,000 youth in the communities it serves. He also serves on the National Advisory Board for the Positive Coaching Alliance. Keith is married and has 4 kids, ages 11 to 19.
Both huge ideas I took from Keith were in the 2nd quarter – where he shares a new way of thinking about individualizing goals for player, and some great teaching games you can use in your practice. I hope you enjoy his insights and stories!
