For years, the basketball players have been given a monthly calendar where they would fill in their ballhandling, shooting totals, and lifting totals.
This year, we changed that with a simple google form. With the amount of players carrying around smartphones, I thought - why not have the players input their totals into an app or program (anything!) instead of carrying around their calendars in their sweaty, smelly gym bag.
The players input their name and their totals:
Of course, with a google form, we get the totals on an excel spreadsheet.
The coaching staff shares the form and has access to the results at their fingertips 24/7.
At the end of every month, the coaches will total all the minutes, shots, and lifts in excel. We discuss the results with each player and the team.
The only drawback, which was the same for the paper calendar, is getting them to input their totals.
Next idea -- set up a push notification!
