About Coach Mac
My name is Trevor McLean and I’m the founder of Basketball For Coaches. I’m a passionate youth basketball coach, player, and overall lover of all things basketball.
I’ve had experience coaching on and off at the youth basketball level for the past 8 years.
I started this blog a couple of years ago to give back to the game I love and that helped shape me to become the person I am today.
As I was growing up I was fortunate enough to have many coaches and teammates that had an incredibly positive impact on my life.
I was taugh first hand that basketball is a fantastic medium for players to learn life lessons and develop long-lasting relationships.
I learnt that the best coaches aren’t necessarily the ones that win the most games, but the coaches that impact the most lives.
My mission is to have the same positive impact on the next generation of players that my coaches and teammates had on me.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying winning isn’t important. Every time I step into a gym with my team I want to win. The focus of many articles on this blog will be strategies, drills, plays, and other things that will put your team in the best position to succeed…
But I understand that winning is not the MOST important thing.
What is important in youth sports?
– Helping shape better people.
– Having fun.
– Being active and healthy.
– Developing relationships.
– Teaching players life lessons.
These things are really what’s important about youth basketball.
If making a positive impact is your mission too, then I urge you to subscribe below and come with me on a journey with me positively impacting the next generation of kids through youth sports.
Why Should You Listen to Me?
Am I the greatest basketball coach on the planet? Hell no. And I would never claim to be.
Am I dedicating a large portion of my life to developing my knowledge and becoming the best basketball coach I can be? Hell yeah I am.
I’m incredibly privileged to spend hours upon hours every single day researching, studying, and writing about basketball and youth sports. This blog has allowed me to converse with some of the best coaches on the planet on a daily basis.
My aim is to bring the knowledge I acquire through experience and from the greatest coaches and trainers in our game, and share it with you on this blog.
The way I see it, why keep what I learn to myself and impact only my own team when I can share it with thousands of coaches all over the world that then use the knowledge to impact all of the kids they coach?
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and I look forward to talking to you soon!
