Frank Martin is a highly successful Division I basketball coach who shares his philosophy on being a parent and watching his sons play youth basketball-

This article is written by a program director that has been involved in AAU and skills development for almost a decade. It focuses on negative decisions/habits that he has seen to frequently among parents.

Having been involved with youth basketball for almost 30 years, I personally have witnessed every item on the list and in the last 3 years as director of the RI Magic, I can honestly say I have seen all of these from parents in our program as well.
