Coaching Philosophy: Coach McRae’s philosophy in coaching has always been to improve players’ fundamentals and basketball knowledge/skills. Dave focuses on drill work and learning game situations to achieve these objectives.
The better a player’s fundamentals and skill work is, the better a player will be. In the end if you improve the fundamentals and skill work of your team, your team will be better.
Players do not stand around at a Coach McRae practice. Practices are very structured and planned out in advance. Players will get in great physical condition from Coach McRae’s practices. Once a team gets in condition, the team has more time for drill work/basketball and they can spend less on conditioning.
One of Coach McRae’s key objectives is to get his players ready to play in high school and beyond.
