    "I bought this book when my 8th grade team seemed to know more about basketball than I did. This book took my coaching to the next level and I was able to coach this team to a City Championship. This book focuses on the finer points of the game and is great for beginners and seasoned coaches."

    "I love this whiteboard app. I have it on my ipad. You can also put it on your iPhone or iPod touch. It is colorful and fun which is great for my team and it is easy to use. I map out the players plays so they know where to go for each play. And if something doesn't work, it is really easy to change it. I can choose the colors that I want my team to use and we can use it whether we are on the bench or not. "
