Basketball Coaching Resources - RATED

Alright, I have waited long enough, I can't stand it anymore. The Internet is filled with basketball sites. Which ones are good? Which do you avoid? We decided to grade the sites below. Welcome back to school folks. The ten point grade scale applies here.

  • A = 91-100 Don't wait, check it out!
  • B = 81-90 Good content site, excellent graphics and layout.
  • C = 71-80 Content is normally here, site design needs help.
  • D = 61-70 Content is somewhere. You find it. I can't. Layout lacks.
  • F = 0-60 These guys don't seem to know how to care for their website. Probably a waste of time. Low to no content.

    Coach's Notebook

    I love this site. From the design to the content. Excellent resource. Coach Steve Jordan has excellent skills and offers a "ton" of information. This is a must see website. This is also one of the more popular basketball coaching sites on the Internet.

    The Basketball Coach's Corner

    Another favorite.The "broken-down" coach, Ken Lindsay, helps with lots of information. The site started as more of a "grass roots" type and has expanded for some ecommerce. Nothing wrong with a guy trying to make some money. Another very popular basketball coaching site on the Internet.

    Basketball Coaching, In Search of Excellence

    Coach Winters has done a nice job with this website. There are quite a few articles to pick and choose from. He is still using Tripod as his web hosting service which might detract from coming across as professional as hoped. Although, he offers a lot of scratch-the-surface information nothing goes into great detail in any one area. All in all a good website, his "Coach's Playbook" seems to be the main reason for the website. Check it out, there is some good information.

    Coach Dom's Basketball Coaching Website

    Coach Dom has put together some bits and pieces. His "Chalk Talk" has some coaching info. The site seems to be mainly an online resume. Coach Dom does carry information about the teams and camps. If you are geographically located near the state of Kansas, the site might be worth a look.

    Jamie Angeli's Basketball Camp of Champs

    Former UCLA assistant coach Jamie Angeli has put together a comprehensive website. You have look between some advertising and information that isn't relevant to basketball. However, you can order his monthly Chicken Soop for the Coach newsletter. It should have some excellent information for you.

    The Basketball Highway

    It's baack! The grand daddy of them all, the Basketball Highway. It is great to see Coach Alan Lambert, large and in charge! A new swing on things and a partnership with the SportZu.tv Video Network will see the Highway make it back to what was the most prominent source on the Internet.

    TeamArete

    The name of the website comes from Greek meaning "the pursuit of excellence." The website appears to follow the name it is a useful benefit for a coach. You can sift through the website and find some useful actual online coaching information. The X's and O's section offers some tips. You have to keep in mind that this website is not a "web specific" resource. This is an upside for it. The site has potential.

    Hoop Tactics

    Ernie Woods and Bob Kloppenburg offer the basketball coach some excellent advice. Coach Kloppenburg's SOS defensive system is analyzed and discussed. Also, they look at NBA style offense and defense systems that apply to man-to-man situations.

    The Coach's Clipboard

    Coach Jim Gels has put together an informational site. You can find a little of everything. The layout and design are minimal. However, the amount of information makes the Coach's Clipboard an excellent choice for information about all aspects of the game. The graphics and layout change when you move from page to page. Inconsistency on this end holds the site back from what should be an "A" site.

    Blue Eagle Basketball Club

    This site is awesome. The layout alone makes it stand out. The menu bar is a nice feature. But the site doesn't stop at looks, If you have ever wanted to see a Motion or Shuffle Offense this is the place to check. The FLASH animations are some of the best on the web. Coach Ernie Wallengren has developed a site worth checking. He may have a problem with PowerBasketball's advertising and eCommerce, but everyone is allowed an opinion. Coach Ernie has devoted some time into his rating system, check out his link page as well. Well done, Coach Ernie.
