Basketball Play - 2 Pass, 3 Pass

2 Pass, 3 Pass

Bert DeSalvo 01/15/2016

Here is a warm up/ progression drill we used when I was an assistant at Clarion University (PA). It is designed to sharpen full court passing and develop a touch and timing with personnel. Each 3-man group gets rotates to the 1,2,3 spot until all players have gone in each spot (rotate to the right). Once the team finishes Pass 2 Drill, then advance to the Pass 3 Drill. See More

Basketball Play - Basic Defensive Drills: Stance Focus

Basic Defensive Drills: Stance Focus

Lee DeForest 12/14/2015

1. Coach will yell "Stance" - players will slap the floor and yell "Stance" down in a defensive stance 2. Coach will say "Move" and the players will begin to chop their feet 3. Coach will point to the left or right and players will react quickly to coach changing directions Why this matters: A defensive stance is the single most important defensive fundamental a player will learn. Teaching players to react to the verbal call of "stance" will also help in a game when a team needs a defensive stop. 1. Coach will yell "Stance" - players will slap the floor and yell "Stance" down in a defensive stance 2. Coach will say "Move" and the players will begin to chop their feet 3. Coach will yell "Go" and players will slide to the opposite lane line and back across as many times as possible in thirty seconds or twenty seconds. Emphasize - movement of the feet and the first step in a direction with the outside foot. 1. Coach will partner up players. 2. 1 player will dribble to the lane line, the other player will be in a stance and move his feet. 3. Go to half court. 4. Players will switch roles at half court and go the other way. 5. The next group goes when the first group gets to half court. Emphasis: Teach the defense to move quickly with the offense. Try to keep their head on the ball. Go half speed until the players learn the drill. The offense should try to keep their head up while dribbling. 1. Offense is ahead of the defense. 2. Slower players need more space. 3. The player with the ball dribbles to the rim to make a lay-up. 4. The defensive player, without fouling, tries to run to a spot in front of the defense. No shot blocking. 5. Move less skilled players closer to basket. Emphasis - try to stop the ball without fouling by forcing the offense to change directions on the fast break. The offense works on staying in control to make the lay-up. See More

Basketball Play - Stationary Ball Toughness

Stationary Ball Toughness

Lee DeForest 12/14/2015

Partner up. Offensive player will rip or sweep the basketball with the defender fouling and reaching in until the coach calls the players name. The player must be able to pass to the coach quickly and on target under pressure. After a successful pass to Coach, offense and defense will switch positions. Can run at both ends. Quick drill. Teaches how long players can have possession without a 5 second count if they are calm under pressure. Coach counts to 4 then players dribble as coach counts to 4 then players jump stop as coach counts to 4. See More

4 Lines - 2 Balls 4 Lines of Players 2 Basketballs Total 1 in each line Each set of partners go down and back Chest Passes Day 1 Bounce Passes Day 2 Weak Hand Passes Day 3 Repeat 4 Lines - 4 Balls 4 lines of players 4 basketballs total 2 in each line with each set of partners Partners go down and back Outside line - chest passes Inside line - bounce passes 3 Lines - 2 Balls 3 lines of players on the baseline Basketballs in the outside lines Outside lines dribble with outside hand Chest pass from outside line to middle line and middle line chest passes back to middle line Laker Drill Ball starts in the middle, and first pass is to right side. On pass, the left side sprints hard to fill a lane. First pass line becomes rebounder out of the net, middle line becomes layup shooter on return, layup shooter becomes first pass on the return. No drops, ball never touches floor. Perfect Layups Lines 1 and 3 start behind the cone; one player starts in Line 2 with a basketball. Line 1 sprints for a cut above the block as Line 3 is sprinting to rebound out of the net. Line 2 is out of bounds and bounces passes to Line 1 for the clean lay-up. Line 3 replaces 2, 2 replaces 1, 1 replaces 3. Figure 8 (3 Man Weave) Ball starts in the middle; pass to either outside line, and fill behind the player the ball is passed to as the ball is moved downcourt. All chest passes. Last pass is a bounce pass for a layup. 110 in 3 110 makes in 3 minutes. Every made shot is one point. Playyers find their range; centers shoot 15' and others shoot three point shots. 3 man weave to start; line 1 is the layup shooter down and back. Only two passes into layup for line 1 and a dribble is allowed to finish. 110 in 3 (continued) Line 1 shoots layup as 2 and 3 spot up for passes from line 4 and line 5. Replace the passer with the shooter; so line 3 shot from line 4's pass, so shooter 3 becomes passer in 4 line. Simple. As soon as line 4 and 5 pass they fill in for the 3 man weave returning to the other end. Coaches count each end and total after 3 mins. 85 in 2 minutes Each layup is worth one point. Player in line 1 passes to coach who can handoff or pass ahead for player to run into and make layup on other end. Line 2 passes to coach and has same rules. See More

Basketball Play - Dr. Dish C2E Explosive D and Wing Curl Options

Dr. Dish C2E Explosive D and Wing Curl Options

Rick Allison 12/10/2015

These movement sequences combine an emphasis on lateral defensive quickness and wing curl shooting options with precise footwork. Each sequence results in a different movement pattern and shot, but builds on an attack counter strategy. This is certainly a technique development drill, but can be modified to add an antagonist to provide initial cue for defensive acceleration direction, and then rotational closeout context on the curl. Dr. Dish can be set with a tempo long enough for the option which requires the most time and shooter can machine gun feet until Dr. Dish passes the ball to start each option sequence. Or, if coach is passer then the Dr. Dish remote can be used. If used for technique development, the sequences should be performed on both sides of the basket, either alternately or repeating the 6 sequences on the opposite side. See More

5 CONTINUOUS GAME-LIKE FINISHING MOVES

Marc Skelton 10/27/2015

This continuous game-like finishing drill works on 5 different moves from 5 different spots on the floor. These moves can be attempted at different spots using left or right hands. This drill also helps develop footwork (pivots), rip through, and ball fakes. We name the moves after NBA players as it is easier to remember and embrace. Bonus:1) Add Euro step 2) Add a blocking pad to finish with contact. See More
