As some of you may know I am a Educational Assistant, as a coach you may not know if your players have special needs unless their parent spoke to you about their needs. Children these days also have a shorter attention span. To reduce your frustration as a coach and to reduce children acting out there are a few strategies you can use. 
  • Share your practice plan with your team and how long each drill will take
  • Keep drills under 10-15 minutes 
  • Stay still and don't move around while explaining the drill, if there is a deaf/hard of hearing Basketball player make it easier for them to hear you and explain the drill in one spot. (if a player is deaf they will try and read your lips so look at them while explaining the drills)
  • Physically move players and limbs where you want them because some players may not understand what you mean by (for example) "elbow under the Basketball" so physically move their elbow under the ball. 
The most important rule is HAVE FUN! If your team is not having fun in practice they will not learn and begin to hate you as a coach and hate the sport of Basketball.
