Claassen to Host Grade School Basketball Coaching Clinics

Clinic on Nov. 5 will feature former Marquette University Coach Hank Raymonds

 

MILWAUKEE, Sept. 25, 2009 – During the first week of November, Coach Joel Claassen will host three basketball clinics throughout the Milwaukee area exclusively for grade school coaches.

 

Each clinic is designed to help coaches maximize their practice time while making them fun and productive for the athlete. Coaches will learn today’s most popular drills and age-appropriate techniques for grade school athletes – boys and girls. Each clinic will teach the basics, but then conclude with a different focus; Man Offense, Pack the Defense and Zone Offense.

 

Man Offense

Held on Sunday, Nov. 1 from 4 – 7 p.m. at St. Jude the Apostle in Wauwatosa.

Attendee’s will learn the first man offense designed specifically for grade school basketball. Man Offense is a position spacing offense that relies on putting your athletes in their strength positions. Each position will have a quick-hitting set designed for a player’s strength or weakness.

 

Pack the Defense

Held on Tuesday, Nov. 3 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. at St. Matthias in Milwaukee.

Coaches will learn this team defense concept “ideal” for grade school basketball that always has your athletes in a help position. It is easy to teach and extremely effective.

 

Zone Offense featuring former Marquette University Coach Hank Raymonds

Held on Thursday, Nov. 5 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. at Pius XI High School in Milwaukee.

Coaches will learn the first Zone Offense designed specifically for grade school basketball. A “free flowing” zone offense that puts your athletes in the best position to make them successful. Coach Claassen and Coach Raymonds will try to mirror most position strengths and weaknesses.
