Strategies for dealing with laconic (lazy) 9/10 Year Old girls

So I've just taken on my first ever basketball coaching gig. Made it through the first training session but I'm wondering if there are any wise coaches out there who can impart some knowledge when it comes to motivating 9/10 year old girls who have attitude issues. They don't talk back but no matter how enthusastic I am she just lopes around - no energy or enthusiasm. She can play - but also needs a lot of work. If I could get her energised I think she'd be keen to learn.Any ideas?

Hi SportsplanI subscribed some time ago paying £4.49 per month, then a number of drills were locked telling me I had to pay £4.99 per month for premium so I did I've realised I've been paying both £4.49 and £4.99 per month so yesterday I cancelled the £4.49 subscription to keep the premium so I can view all when I've gone to view a drill for this afternoon's training session it tells me I have to subscribe to premium at £4.99 which I've already done,can you check and sort this problem out please as I need it quickly.Graeme Winterburn

App use

Hi can you add drills from your clipboard to folders to categorise and use during training? thanks

Clipboard/ Folder User Interface

Previously used this app and as I'm coaching again this season I've started using it again, previously never had much of an issue creating different training sessions.However, it seems now it is only possible to save exercises to your clipboard before then having the clipboard appear in your folders (which it has also disappeared for some reason for me)Ultimately the above makes for a really poor user experience where I get frustrated I can't just create a new session each week and place drills in that session. I like having a resource to view potential drills, etc but the above stops me being able to actually use it during a training session.More of a comment than a question but wanted to give my feedback.

Unable to open locked items after upgrading membership

I upgraded membership on 29 June and still unable to open locked items. This is a little disappointing as I there are drills I was hoping to view for training this week and the fact I have paid the upgrade and for it not to be working.

How to coach kids who don't sp...

I am currently coaching chinese students at an average age of about 7. Its for a basketball camp so there are no competitions or games to prepare for, merely working on individual skills. The problem I have is mostly with the language. I am currently a student so I know some of the language but not enough to exlain how a drill will work. Anyone have experience with this or any advice otherwise? I am a just a basketball player turned coach so any advice no matter how simple would be appreciated.

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.

Debbie Cross Australia

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
