“If I had 8 hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend 6 sharpening my ax.”
~ Abe Lincoln

PARENTS: this is the correct ratio of PREARATION vs COMPETITION. Aim for 3 to 4 times as much prep-practice as games.  Players-Teams who play as much or more than they practice have a limited shelf life.

 

  • UCONN’s Gino Auriemma explains this ratio here.
  • NBA Coach Stan Van Gundy explains it as well here.  The best players are now European.  See the MVP list the last 6 years and for the foreseeable future! Skills, skills, skills, skills, skills, skills, etc.
