Basketball Play - 1v1 with Advantage

1v1 with Advantage

John Leonzo 06/30/2016

One of the best ways to develop individual skill is to play 1v1 against players that are going to challenge you. That being said, rolling the ball out and playing mindless 1v1 is not the best option to achieve one's desired outcome. What I will advocate for in this article is to play multiple variations of 1v1 games in order to grow one's skill and challenge oneself in a unique way. For a PDF of all the games and drills shown in this article (as well as a bonus drill), please click here. See More

Basketball Play - Iowa State Transition

Iowa State Transition

FastModel Sports 06/17/2016

"This comes from Coach Fred Hoiberg from his time at Iowa State. The drills teaches the guys to run the floor, communicate and pass ahead and the importance of transition points all within a competitive environment. The guys are working together to achieve a team goal, with a consequence if they do not achieve their goal." Coach Brett Campbell St. Charles Spartans Boys Basketball See More

Basketball Play - 3 on 3 Get Back

3 on 3 Get Back

FastModel Sports 06/17/2016

"This drill comes from Coach Jim Boone, the Head Coach at Delta State and is called the 3 on 3 Get Back Drill. We have some teams in our conference that do a fantastic job of pushing the ball up the floor, even after made baskets. This drill teaches our guys to do this- we call it “fast break makes”. It also teaches the importance of transition defense and stopping the basketball. We keep score and go live for a set amount of time with a consequence for the team that doesn’t win."

Basketball Play - Dribble Drive Motion - Creating a Split & Decision Making Pt.2

Dribble Drive Motion - Creating a Split & Decision Making Pt.2

null null 06/15/2016

Here are some more basic drills we have found extremely valuable during the "implementing Dribble Drive" phase, which we still use on a daily/weekly basis (they are a modified version of the traditional DDM Blood Drills). The importance of being able to create a "split" (where two defenders commit to the ball carrier) is pararmount within our DDM system, but the ability to be able to make an appropriate read/decision is just as important. There is no point getting in to the paint if you are just going to throw the ball away. What we are doing in this series is creating gamelike situations for our players, then letting them play it out and build on their decision making ability. You can move the initial setup to suit your teams needs, and all players are encouraged to play all positions/roles as part of their basketball IQ development. See More

Basketball Play - Dribble Drive Motion - Creating a Split & Decision Making Work

Dribble Drive Motion - Creating a Split & Decision Making Work

null null 06/10/2016

Here are some basic drills we have found extremely valuable during the "implementing Dribble Drive" phase, which we also use on a daily/weekly basis. The importance of being able to create a "split" (where two defenders commit to the ball carrier) is pararmount within our DDM system, and just as important is the ability to find the open player (from where the 2nd defender came from) for a high percentage & open scoring option. Our "Decision Making" breakdown work is by far the most important part of our practice plan when it comes to our offensive system, very rarely will we conduct 5on5 for great periods of time (no more than 20mins per practice), rather we choose to place as much time in to 2on1, 2on2, 3on2, & 3on3 situational decision making as possible within our practice plan. We have found this approach to be very successful, creating an enviroment where players are making high percentage decisions/reads on a regular basis. There is a reasonable amount of "ugly basketball" when we first implement the DDM system, and we encourage our coaches to try and let the players "organically grow" within the system and make their own decisions/reads, though this is often easier said than done, try and "guide" the players decision making rather than making the decision for them. We encourage questions like "what was your thought process on that decision" & "what did you see that triggered that decision" See More

Basketball Play - Beat the Pro

Beat the Pro

John Leonzo 06/02/2016

This is part of John Leonzo's Solo Summer Shooting Workout. I recommend making no fewer than 200 shots a day, 6 days a week. Be sure to remind your players that there is no magic in the drills, in the facility, or in the coach that is with them, the magic is in the work. Improvement has a knack for following consistent work ethic and persistence. See More

Adapted from Coach Hoiberg when he was at Iowa State, this drill is one of our favorites at Woodson. This is one of our "DNA Drills," or every day drills that make up the DNA of our program. If your team wants to/likes to push the pace, use Cyclone to emphasize that! See More

Basketball Play - Dr. Dish - Hunt the Paint Drill

Dr. Dish - Hunt the Paint Drill

Aseem Rastogi 06/02/2016

Full court, full skill drill utilizing the Dr. Dish as the outlet passer. Use it to train ball handling, outlet pass positioning, moves on the move, finishing off two feet, and more. The goal of total makes should vary by level - girls' varsity team starts out with the goal of 70 in 5 mins in November, should be nearing 100 in January. See More
