It is intended to emphasize game speed movements while incorporating an anaerobic conditioning element.

Basketball Play - 4 vs 3 No Threes

4 vs 3 No Threes

Randy Brown 12/15/2014

In my college experiences I've worked with some of the best defensive coaches in the business; Tim Floyd, Kevin O'Neill, Larry Eustachy, and Gary Garner. Each of them ran tough, competitive practices with demanding drills. Here is one that will really help your half court defense. Getting to three point shooters is important to a solid half court defense. This diagrammed drill is based on getting to the shooting and taking away the open three. It demands great communication, rotation, anticipation, closing out, being there on the catch, vision, blocking out and rebounding with two hands. If three defenders can successfully defend four players in this drill then your game time defense will shut down any opponent's three point shooting. DEFENSIVE RULES: 1. Must be there on the catch by offense 2. Ball pressure at all times 3. Communication entire possession 4. Two non-on ball defenders protect basket and lay ups 5. Secure rebound with two hands Getting to three point shooters is important to a solid half court defense. This diagrammed drill is based on getting to the shooting and taking away the open three. It demands great communication, rotation, anticipation, closing out, being there on the catch, vision, blocking out and rebounding with two hands. If three defenders can successfully defend four players in this drill then your game time defense will shut down any opponent's three point shooting. DRILL OPTIONS: 1. When does drill end? You can designate the number of passes, the number of threes taken away, or time. 2. If you set conditions and a defender or defenders violates it, you start possession over. 3. Conditions could include being there on the catch, hand up on closeout, communication re: who has ball, vision, three block outs, rebound the ball with two hands. 4. Can use this as a three man drill or a team drill; i.e.-8 players white and 3 players red. See More

It fosters toughness, shot selection and three point accuracy, decision making, closing out, defending and rebounding with two hands. It can add healthy peer pressure to your practices. See More

Basketball Play - Get Open Drill

Get Open Drill

Drew Hanlen 10/09/2014

This is a great drill to work on screening, using screens, passing and catching! Set Up: Ball handler will start with the ball at the top of the key and will be pressured by an on-ball defender, while another offensive player will start under the rim with a defender in full denial. Two all-time screeners will start just outside each second hash mark. Step 1: Offensive player under the rim will try to free themselves from their defender by using the screeners in any way that they want (curl, pop, fade, wiggle, etc), while their defender will try to deny them from receiving a pass from the ball handler. Step 2: If the offensive player frees themselves from their defender, the ball handler will complete a pass to them. After passing the ball, the original ball handler will make a basket cut to the rim, while the offensive player that received the ball will dribble the ball to the top of the key. The offensive team will try to complete eight catches in a row, while the defenders try to get a steal or force a turnover. Ball handler can be called for a five-second violation. Additional Info: If the offensive players successfully complete eight catches in a row, they will become the next screeners, the defenders will stay on defense and the screeners will move to offense. If the defenders get a steal or force a turnover, they will become the next screeners, the offensive players will move to defense and the screeners will move to offense.

Off the Ball 1 on 1 Drill

Fabian McKenzie 07/04/2014

This is a good drill for players to work on getting open away from the ball. The defensive player must also work very hard to prevent 1 from making an easy catch. The passer must also work at delivering the pass on time and on target. You can play to a set score or a set number of stops. We will move spots on the floor to increase the difficulty for the offense or defense See More
