If unsafe conditions exist, either make adaptations to avoid risk to your players' safety or stop the practice or game until safe conditions have been restored.  Such an approach gives smaller, less mature children a better chance to succeed and avoid injury, and provides larger children with more of a challenge.  So, thoroughly explain the inherent risks of basketball, and make sure each player knows, understands, and appreciates those risks. ASEP Fact Basketball is one of the top four injury­producing sports participated in by young athletes.

These specific supervisory activities will make the play environment safer for your players and will help protect you from liability if a mishap does occur.  And hold onto these records Page 55 for several years so that an "old basketball injury" of a former player doesn't come back to haunt you.  Nor do players have to feel thirsty; in fact, by the time they are aware of their thirst, they are long overdue for a drink.  Easy running followed by stretching activities is a common sequence.  Then arrange for a 5­ to 10­minute period of easy stretching at the end of practice to help players avoid stiff muscles and make them less tight before the next practice.

So try the following suggestions for communicating with these groups.  You can put their worries to rest by holding a preseason parent orientation meeting in which you describe your background and your approach to coaching.  Messages sent to parents through children are too often lost, misinterpreted, or forgotten.  So put away your "rabbit ears" and communicate to fans, through your actions, that you are a confident, competent coach.  If you notice that one of your players is rattled by a fan's comment, reassure the player that your evaluation is more objective and favorable—and the one that counts.
