As part of #PlayerDevelopmentWeek I am putting together a series of Drill Progressions that we use in order to develop skills to fit our Dribble Drive Motion Offense. In this third installment we are looking at the use of "Dribble Stops". Good Defenses will not be beaten by the first drive of a possession so it is important that players know how to use "Dribble Stops" as a means to keep the pressure on the defense. We place heavy emphasis on the use of 1) Stride Stops, 2) Two Foot Jump Stops, and 3) The Use of the Bounce Out Dribble. These three "Dribble Stops" allow you make plays after a failed drive, and in the case of the Bounce Out Dribble allow you to keep the basketball moving.
The 3/0 Stride Stop Drill presented below is a 3 Man Progression Drill in which we are asking players to land perfect Stride Stops, followed by perfect timing of Second Cuts. Once players have moved beyond the 3/0 portion of the drill we can load the drill with defense.
