A good scouting report is a "must" in successfully meeting and beating the many divergent game plans that teams often face in today's modern game. Hooptactics has developed a threefold scouting procedure designed to assist coaches of all teaching levels how to formulate an accurate, concise, and thorough game plan against each and every opponent to be faced. When passed on and interpreted, each player should be better prepared and far more confident in meeting whatever defense and offense the opponent is utilizing.
Since coaches have a tedndency to have "tunnel" vision, it is a good idea to have your own team scouted and evaluated periodically by an outside source, especially early in the pre-season. It is also wise to schedule some pre-season games against teams that have similar styles of play to those that you are going to meet in conference play.
