Junior Basketball Development with Luke Meier

Junior Basketball Development with Luke Meier


On this episode, we are joined by Luke Meier of REALWORK Basketball. Luke is a local basketball skills coach in the Milwaukee area, and a past podcast guest.

Luke has had the privilege and challenge of starting to coach his own kids in basketball over the past year, and it is a topic that he and I have talked about a lot recently. So, we decided to share some of our knowledge and experiences with you in this podcast. 

Specifically, Luke and I talk about:

  • The real goal of youth sports
  • Current trends he sees in youth basketball 
  • How to take a long term development approach to basketball with kids
  • Why it is important for kids to learn how to play the game of basketball and not just individual skills
  • What he has learned from coaching his kids 

This is a great episode if you have young kids or work with young kids in any sport, not just basketball.
