S9 Ep13: Counterpoint
Talking Split

1w ago
All coaches have opinions (listen back a couple of episodes to hear some), but today we revisit some of the stronger opinions we have and see if we can unpack the other side of the coin with what we believe. In some we come around, and look at a few different ways we could all do things, and in others it’s fair to say we don’t deviate too much ..read more

S9 Ep12: You Shall Not Pass (To the opposition)
Talking Split
by Basketball Victoria
2w ago
One of the most frequent areas of frustration for coaches (and usually parents on the sidelines) is the skill of passing. For what is one of the more basic skills in the sport, it causes a mountain of turnovers in every game, and the last thing we need to be doing, is handing fastbreak points to the opposition! This week we discuss what is a good pass, how to increase player vision, and how to inbound the ball whilst under pressure amongst other things, and various tangents ..read more

We are all time poor planning out training sessions, and even getting to games and training, and whilst we all do our best, there are times that we can overlook certain areas of the game. The good news is, we’ve got you covered! We discuss some things that can easily be forgotten about, and how to make sure that they are still featuring in how we all coach ..read more

Big weekend of basketball for most coaches coming up, with tournaments a plenty around the country running. We discuss the balance of winning and development, what you can try and get from them, and importantly how to manage the load coming out of them. No book club this week, but happy to accept submissions, and we have a coach shoutout we are also accepting submissions for. We have a discussion around Coops’ Crocs camp and upcoming tournament, and the Caitlin Clark effect on basketball ..read more

We get that sometimes you get a bit tired of hearing the same old voices, so we’ve gone looking for some additional sound bytes from around the sporting world to unpack and discuss. We hear from Coops about his Crocs Camp, and Rob is on for Book Club where he advocates for an early morning wake up, which Zoe is quick to put up her rebuttal for! Last episode until we are back in May, so plenty of time to get the coach appreciation shout outs through ..read more

When you think of Melbourne, hopefully it’s because of the Traralgon based superstar Jade Melbourne, and not just because it’s the world’s most liveable city! In a desperate attempt to get Jarrod Potter back listening to the podcast, we have enlisted the help of one of Victoria Country’s finest ever athletes who takes us through her career to this point, and what it looks like in the future (and hopefully Paris in particular!). Lots for coaches and players to take from this one to help with their basketball, and welcome back Potter ..read more

S9 Ep5: Team Culture
Talking Split

4M ago
Back again to discuss team culture and dynamics, an area that is always spoken about, but sometimes doesn’t get the attention it deserves from coaches. Is it the coaches, or the players job to drive and establish the team culture? Does the role of the captain matter, or does it make it harder to be a player? We also have a few opportunities for coaches to develop and get involved coaching some of the BV athletes, and it’s Rob’s turn at the Book Club this week ..read more

It’s only taken us a few weeks, and already we are into a 2-part pod topic! Great input from one of the listeners who suggested we discuss the mental side of the game from our players perspective and this week we talk preparation for an upcoming game, and how to avoid the dreaded complacency trap. Coops is tormented with more Sunderland pain, and Zoe “cooks” up the first edition of the Talking Split Book Club – stay tuned for Part 2 next week ..read more

Not travelling quite as far this week with the U.S. Tour covered off last week, but the HP staff are thankful that the chaos of January is now behind them. This week we are in with Coops and Jenna as they discuss what they took away from the National Performance Camp and being the Head Coaches of the U20 Victoria Navy teams at the recent National Championships, and how some of their observations can help coaches in the development levels, help their players ..read more
