Get Ready to
WELCOME, I'M GLAD YOU FOUND ME. "CH" STANDS FOR
COACH HERNDON. I'm a long-time college and high
school coach (Rice University, North Dakota
State University, Washington and Lee University,
Christ School - Asheville, N.C., Episcopal High
School - Houston, TX) that is now pursuing the
highest level of basketball instruction on the
private level. I do ONE-ON-ONE, SMALL GROUP AND
TEAM INSTRUCTION. I conduct coaches' clinics for
college and high school coaches here in the U.S.
and for pro coaches in Europe. I conduct CLINICS
FOR YOUTH LEAGUE COACHES who want to do a better
job organizing practices, understanding
offenses, breaking presses, preparing for games,
or just communicating better with young players.
PRIVATE INSTRUCTION IS WHERE REAL PROGRESS IS MADE
IN SKILLS AND TECHNIQUE. I am the very best in
the city at teaching players at every level how
to execute simple skills perfectly so that they
can progress and do hard things easily. My
instruction is extremely high level, clear and
consistent. Anyone attending my one-on-one
sessions will leave with the absolute confidence
that they are building skills, not doing drills.
Whether it's shooting technique, ball handling,
attacking the basket from the perimeter, post
play, etc., you can rest assured that I am the
very best at teaching the details, watching for
their continued execution and making sure that
they become a part of your game.
A LARGE PART OF WHAT I DO IS WORK WITH DIFFERENT
AAU TEAMS that hire me to come in and put in
'the package' of man offense, zone offense,
quick hitters, transition, baseline and sideline
out-of bounds plays, defenses, presses; overall
to establish the team philosophy. I work
with the highest level teams in every age range.
The mark that I put on each team is teamwork,
ball movement, an understanding of motion
offense, solid shell defensive principles, and
hard-nosed fair play. Teams whose coaches have
brought me in to put my 'mark' on them are known
for their execution, unselfishness,
aggressiveness and execution.
IN THE SUMMERTIME I DIRECT THE RICE OWLS
BASKETBALL CAMPS FOR RICE BASKETBALL. We offer a
wide array of camps; Shooting Camp, Big Man and
Guard Camps, Biddie Ball (Ages 4-7), Day Camps,
Elite Team Camps and our Superstar and Jr.
Superstar overnight camps that are as good, or
better than any in the nation. So don't go
looking anywhere else; Rice Basketball camps are
I ALSO TRAVEL ABROAD DURING THE YEAR (Europe,
the Caribbean) to run clinics for players and
coaches. I've been lucky to work with European
professional teams, the Chinese Junior National
Team, even the Olympic team in the British
Virgin Islands. I'm looking to expand to Central
and South America soon.
MY MANUALS AND VIDEOS cover a wide array of topics
in the game in fine detail and descriptive
visual images. The materials include manuals and
videos on Building a Program, Shooting, Post
Play technique, Quick Hitters and Baseline
Out-of-Bounds Plays, the Parent Pack, and
Coaching and Teaching Youth Basketball.
Basketball is the greatest, most beautiful game
ever invented. Individual skill is great, but
there is absolutely nothing like a team. I owe a
great debt of gratitude to those coaches who
have taught me so much about the game,
youngsters, people, priorities, and the fine art
of teaching. I'm honored to be a part of the
game. If I can help in any way, please don't
hesitate to get in touch.
