Organization is critical to preparation. The key, then, to being a good coach and having a well-prepared team, is to be organized. When you go into a practice, make sure that you know what you want to accomplish during that practice and how you are going to accomplish it. Know what drills will be done and how much time you will spend on each drill. Make effective use of the time you have, as it's often very limited. This is the start of a practice plan, an invaluable tool for the organized coach.
Always take every practice seriously because the way that you practice is the way that you are going to play. If you don't put much effort into practice, those habits will show on the court during the game. Practice hard and you will play hard in the games.
