The Basketball Podcast: EP45 Aaron Fearne on Tagging Up

RELEASE DATE : 12/06/2019

In this week’s basketball coaching conversation, Aaron Fearne, current Charlotte 49ers assistant coach, and former professional head coach, joins the podcast to discuss sending five players to the offensive boards in his “Tagging Up” offensive rebounding system. The podcast covers team and individual offensive rebounding tactics and techniques. Defensive transition is discussed in the context of this system to give you real insights into a stimulating idea.

Fearne joins the 49ers coaching staff after spending the last nine years as head coach of the National Basketball League’s Cairns Taipans, which plays in Australia’s top professional league.

In his nine seasons at the helm of the Taipans, he coached in 264 games and guided them to three appearances in the NBL playoffs. In 2011, he led the team to an appearance in the NBL Finals. In 2015, he coached the Taipans to a record 21 wins and another appearance in the league finals while garnering NBL Coach of the Year honors. In 2017, he guided the Taipans to a second place finish in the regular-season and a trip to the NBL semifinals.

Prior to becoming head coach, Fearne spent seven seasons (2001-08) as an assistant coach for the Taipans. During that time, he also served as the head coach of the Cairns Taipans Academy, which is a junior development academy which he created. Boston Celtics center Aron Baynes and former NBA player Nathan Jawai came out of the Academy.

The Tagging Up System with Aaron Fearne

Aaron Fearne Quotes:

“I had this mindset of being really physical on the offensive glass and coming up with extra possessions.”

“We’re just going to send everyone to the glass but there needs to be some rules.”

“When the shot goes up, you’ve got to get on the front foot and you’ve got to go make contact with the guy that’s defending you . . that’s really, really important – that you get on the front foot and everybody is on the front foot.”

“The feedback that I got back from players and coaches . . [was] it just simplifies things. The shot goes up, tag up on your man over the high side and let’s compete for the offensive rebound.”

“Guys do not block out . . but you’ve got to have the discipline not to run past him . . .you’ve got to just basically hit him and drive him in . . it does become a very physical contest.”

“We played a fairly deliberate style of game . . it’s a lot easier to offensive rebound when you have that internal feel of when shots are going up.”

“Your predictability on shot selection needs to be at a high level but it should be no matter what defensive transition system you’re running.”

“When we went to the tag up system . . our defensive transition points allowed got better, our offensive rebounding numbers went up so we got extra possessions . . consistently we were pretty good . . at containing you and not giving you easy baskets.”

“It makes you have to be physical . . you’ve got to block out, you have to be competitive offensively . . you’re probably not going to be a great defensive rebounding team . . if you don’t practice against it every day.”

“With the fast-paced teams, if you go the other way and you’re retreating they just come at you with more speed because they’ve got more room . . I’m trying to cut your space down because I’ve got more players up the floor on their matchup earlier.”

“A lot of guards are not great at blocking out and now we’ve put you in a position where you have to block out every time.”

“The other little dynamic to it is . . if you were in that 50/50 contest and you couldn’t quite come up with it, well then try and hit it out . . or hit it out across the sideline or baseline generally, just kill the possession. Now we can get set and contain you.”

“The danger is if you don’t all commit to it . . it’s got to be 100% commitment every possession.”

“Try to force your man into a position where he’s out of position.”

“It’s all about rebounding preparation and forcing the defense into disadvantaged positions . . we’re trying to scrum you in to cut down your space.”

“I would want my son or daughter to be coached hard. A lot of them don’t understand how hard kids get coached internationally.”

“How do you get better if you’re not challenged?”

  3. With our expedited long-distance moves, you can expect a quick delivery time to your new home, often times with the same movers who moved the belongings out of your home. Unlike other long-distance carriers who cannot guarantee arrival times, we provide you with an exact date for arrival at your new location which means you can settle into your new home sooner, rather than later. For a cross-country move, you’ll need to factor in gas and extra insurance, and possibly tolls. With so many variables, it’s hard to estimate the cost. But it could be anywhere from $300 up to almost $3,000. Whether you have a place where you can unpack once you arrive will impact this cost. Whether you are moving furniture down the stairs or moving heavy equipment up the stairs, you should have a friend help you, and you should wear work gloves and sturdy shoes. Movers.com suggests starting with a good look at the steps to make sure there are no uneven steps or loose boards. You can also measure the ceiling height, the railings and the width of the stairway – and the object – to make sure that it will actually fit. http://southerntss.com/community/profile/rosaliebabb9944/ I’ve let my house go a few times, so I’m well versed in “how to clean a trashed house.”  Sometimes it can happen by neglecting rooms little by little, until it all becomes way too much to handle, other times a major life event totally destroys your usual clean-up routine.   Sometimes these items are holding you back from moving forward in life. Cleaning them out can be a good time to think about the past, remember the good times, make peace with what has happened and then part with the item so that you can move forward. “I’m obsessed! This thing works small miracles: I cleaned about half of my bathroom’s grout to its original sparkling-clean cream color in 40 minutes, and it took honestly no effort at all. And — as if easy, sparkling grout wasn’t enough! — it busted through some serious soap-scum buildup in my bathtub (thanks, fancy soap and slow-draining tub) in less than a minute.

  11. Like most the best cryptocurrency exchanges, the Crypto.com app makes it easy to convert fiat currencies into crypto. It accepts over 20 fiat currencies including USD, GBP, and EUR. And you won’t have to pay hefty fees, though depending on your country of residence, you may find you’re limited to certain fiat currencies once you register. From hashrate, to block details, to mining information, and more. For users who have completed advanced verification requirements, the exchange also offers leverage. Leverage allows users to borrow money in order to magnify the volatility of a trade or investment. Users of leverage are at risk of liquidation, which is when your leverage play against you and drains your position to 0 rapidly. For this reason, only experienced traders should use leverage. You’ll also have to pay interest on borrowed funds, making leveraged positions expensive to hold. Leverage is currently unavailable to US customers http://hiphopdirecto.com/community/profile/orvgrace1642199/ The network effect for Bitcoin encompasses the liquidity of its market, the number of people who own it, and the community of developers maintaining and improving upon its software and its brand awareness. Large investors, including nation-states, will seek the most liquid market so that they can enter and exit the market quickly without affecting its price. Developers will flock to the dominant development community which has the highest-calibre talent, thereby reinforcing the strength of that community. And brand awareness is self-reinforcing, as would-be competitors to Bitcoin are always mentioned in the context of Bitcoin itself. If you are hungry and nearby, then it might be worth considering getting stuck into a sandwich. The box costs $15.
