Being a better coach and building a competitive team requires accurate stat keeping. An assistant coach, manager or assistant manager, any of whom can be students, should keep accurate stats for your team. The information will help the coach correctly assess the team’s strengths and weaknesses. A team shooting 50% in free throws should work on this in practice. If they are shooting 90%, work on something else they are weak in. That kind of analysis leading to structured practice can work across the board on shooting, rebounding, turnovers, etc. It all starts with accurate stats.
