What does your bench look like during games?

      2nd Answer Example

      "For example: "I let my players choose whether or not they are going to sit or stand when they are off the court. My only major rule related to bench time is to make sure you are focused and cheering for your teammates."

      Nice response! You paint a really clear picture with this answer. How do you encourage this behavior in your players?

      Community Answer

      "Our bench is full of energy. Players are watching their teammates and cheering them on. They stand up during every substitution to give a high-five to the players leaving the floor. Players are engaged during every time-out and during adjustments, so when they are on the floor, they know what to do."
