(The book) is a fascinating read, chock full of helpful advice and anecdotes that will inspire anyone from the greenest coaches to those close to retirement.
Canton, OH (PRWEB) May 03, 2012
High school basketball coaches searching for a book that can help them build a stronger basketball program should look no further. In the new book, "The Best-Laid Plans of a High School Basketball CEO," authors Matt Kramer and Randy Montgomery share their experience creating winning teams to provide helpful advice to coaches-- veteran and novice--who hope to improve their programs.
Coach Matt Kramer’s basketball team was considered to be among the worst in the Canton, Ohio region; finishing their 2003-2004 season with a record of 3-19, Coach Kramer was concerned about the future of the basketball program as well as the possibility that he’d lose his job. However, a mere two years later, Kramer led his team to victory in the Canton Division-II District Championship game, earning the team a spot in Ohio’s “Sweet 16”, a prestigious position for the former underdogs.
What happened over the course of twenty-six months? How did Kramer manage to turn the team around in such a short period of time?
Kramer credits the change in the Fairless basketball program to the mentorship of Coach Randy Montgomery, a hall-of-fame Ohio high school basketball coach with an impressive 500 wins under his belt. Montgomery’s advice coupled with Kramer’s willingness to implement change and work hard reshaped the foundering basketball program, creating an environment ripe for success.
Coaches Kramer and Montgomery team up together in this, their first book, to share their successes and their failures and what they learned from both with any coach eager to foster leadership and tradition in their programs. From the interview process that every potential high school coach must endure to the environment that is fostered in the team’s locker room, Kramer and Montgomery offer solid advice backed by years of experience.
"The Best-Laid Plans of a High School Basketball CEO" is a fascinating read, chock full of helpful advice and anecdotes that will inspire anyone from the greenest coaches to those close to retirement. Author Matt Kramer was born the son of a basketball coach, and has been coaching high school basketball since the 1990s. He lives in Ohio with his wife Christine and their three children. Author Randy Montgomery is a hall of famer who has been coaching high school basketball for more than three decades, leading two high school programs to elite status.
