When the ball comes your way, you have two jobs.
Job one is to keep the ball with the team. More on that later.
Job number two is to create a ‘good ball’. A ‘good ball’ is well-played ball that creates an advantage for your team. These are potential game changers.
Examples can range from laying a ball out for a teammate to take a good shot with one touch or as small as popping a loose ball to a nearby open teammate, turning a 50/50 chance of winning the ball into 100% chance.
Get in the habit of recognizing good balls and letting your teammates know by telling them, “Good ball!” The more we reward them, the more we will produce them and the more chances we will create.
