The role of a basketball coach is not simply to improve the skills of each player and their understanding of the various tactics of the game. A coach’s role extends to developing each athlete as a person. Particularly when coaching young athletes, a coach should seek to instil a love of the game in each player and a desire to play and learn about the game.
The World Association of Basketball Coaches (WABC), in association with FIBA, have released a new and improved "Coaches Manual" (November 2016) which is to be made available to all basketball coaches around the world free of charge.
