Basketball coaches, this is a resource for you. Basketball Immersion was founded by Chris Oliver in 2014 with the goal of sharing everything he has gained from 20+ years immersed in playing, learning and coaching basketball. Coach Oliver has coached at many levels, from club to university ranks. He has facilitated camps globally and has developed numerous professional players.
In Coach Oliver's words... The website covers a range of basketball topics: Offense, Defense, Skills, Philosophy and Sport Sciences. This information combines many basketball ideas influenced by many sports, coaches, and researchers from many different fields of study. The goal beyond sharing knowledge is to build a community for coaches and players to ask questions and receive feedback and advice that can help grow knowledge about the game.
We teach the game mainly using a games approach to coaching basketball. We teach the game in the context of the game while players play the game.
Basketball Immersion is a one-stop website dedicated to all aspects of playing and teaching the game of basketball. Most information is presented in video form so that it is easy to understand and learn. The website is for basketball and players, male and female, volunteers and professionals, full-time and part-time, who are open-minded about their training methods and have a passion to learn.
