CoachDeck LLC Releases New Basketball Drill Deck
San Diego, CA Oct 9, 2008 – CoachDeck LLC (www.coachdeck.com), a San Diego, CA-based company, has has added a third product to its line with the release of their new basketball deck. CoachDeck is a standard-sized deck of cards containing over 50 drills designed to enable parent-volunteer coaches in youth sports to run effective practices even if they lack time to prepare, experience, or both.
Hundreds of recreational youth sports organizations and tens of thousands of coaches have used CoachDeck for soccer and baseball since the company's launch in early 2007. CoachDeck for basketball is geared towards recreation-level basketball coaches from first grade through junior high.
The drills in the deck, broken into four color-coded categories of shooting, ball-handling, passing and defense, were provided by Drew Catlett who has over 20 years experience playing and coaching college basketball. Catlett coached at the University of West Virginia and Georgia State, among others.
Brian Gotta, President of CoachDeck, is excited about the company’s new product and future growth potential. "I am an experienced baseball coach, but when coaching recreational basketball teams for my three sons, I never felt I really knew how to run an effective practice. Having this CoachDeck for basketball would have been a blessing to me. I believe thousands of moms and dads who are scared to volunteer will feel infinitely more confident when they use this product. We plan to develop a CoachDeck for football, hockey, cheerleading, and all other team sports where parent-volunteers need our help. Plus, because of the extremely positive reception to our products in the grassroots community sports market, we plan to leverage our brand equity in a variety of innovative and exciting new directions. Ultimately, I envision our decks of cards only being a small portion of what we do."
CoachDeck cards were created to assist the millions of hard-working youth sports volunteers and parents who would like to help players learn important skills and fundamentals though fun drills and games. Designed by professional coaches, the drills in CoachDeck can be performed by players from 6-16 and are laid out in a fast, easy-to-understand format that allows coaches to conduct an extremely effective practice with little or no preparation.
