Last off season I stumbled across the coolest coaching resource I had ever seen. Coach Grabowski's Pistol iBook. I had never seen this type of technology. It was a book created for the iPad and Mac, that had diagrams, presentations, and movie clips built right in to it. It became a constant resource that I revisited and took ideas from throughout last season.
I wrote a review of it last march that can be found here.
In an attempt to out do his first masterpiece, Coach Grabowski's latest project is available for download. I spent spring break reading, watching, and experiencing his second major iBook.
The Zone Offense
Coach Grabowski has created an encyclopedia worth of knowledge on running a zone based offense.
The entire iBook can be purchased here.
The iBook can also be purchased in sections, a la carte style.
1. Define the system and build the foundation
2. Structure a starting point and develop coaching methods
3. Develop the fundamentals
Each volume comes with a wealth of information and TONS of video from practice and games.
The iBook contains 51 minutes of video and 75 interactives.
Here's a blog post from Coach Grabowski about his latest iBook.
Be on the lookout for future projects coming from Coach Grabowski, including one that I helped contribute to. It will be a another interactive iBook on the Pistol featuring articles, diagrams, and video from various coaches throughout the country.
I contributed a section on OL play in the Power Scheme.
