Basketball Play - Transition Track Down:

Transition Track Down:

FastModel Sports 04/15/2015

Place a cone at the feet throw line extended at the opposite end of the court. The offense can’t cut in towards the basket until after they reach that cone, which allows the defense a bit more time to catch up and avoids collisions at mid court. The defensive player works to track down the offensive player and make a play on the ball. It is important that players do not get out of control during this drill, and that they never hit one of their teammates while in the air...we don’t want anyone getting injured. Instead, the defender needs to work on doing one of the following: sprinting in front of the offensive player; knocking the ball out from behind; blocking the shot from behind; or catching up completely and working to stop further penetration. (Note: while this is primarily a defensive drill, it is also a great way for your players to learn to finish with pressure and/or small contact on the offensive side of the ball.) See More

Basketball Play - Motion Breakdowns - 3/1 Live

Motion Breakdowns - 3/1 Live

Randy Sherman 03/25/2015

3/1 Live (Part of Motion Offense Forum Drill Progressions) Objective: To use motion offense concepts to free the cutter for a basket. In this drill there are two screeners and one cutter (2) in each offensive group. The cutter is defended by X2. Diagrammed below are two of the nearly endless options that could come into play. There is now way to completely diagram all of the screens, cuts, reads and actions possible in this drill. The screeners' objective is to free the cutter (2) for a basket using motion offense concepts and maintianing top-side-side alignment. This is live and competiive drill. Drill Restrictions: Only the cutter can score. Offense must complete two passes BEFORE the cutter gets a touch. (This puts emphasis on second cutters!) The score must come from the screening action, not one-on-one play Competiive Ideas: On a 12-player roster, divide your team into four three-player groups. Set 8:00 (or a time of your choosing) on the clock. If your cutter scores with screening action, that team gets a point and stays on offense. A defender comes from the next team to guard the groups cutter. If that defender can force a stop and get the rebound, his/her team rotates to offense and now has opportunity to score points. Track each team's points. Variations: Start the ball on the wing instead of the top of the circle. Use shallow cuts to start the drill. Allow the offense to pass it to a coach at any time in the drill. can introduce staggers, baseline double, or dual screens to the drill. Side note: Have an assitant coach the defender! The defender will literally encounter dozens of defensive stances, close outs, denials and scenarios in each possession. See More

Basketball Play - Motion Breakdowns - 2/2 With A Coach

Motion Breakdowns - 2/2 With A Coach

Randy Sherman 03/10/2015

First completely "live" drill in motion offense teaching progressions. Once you have installed the four cuts, downscreens, shallow cuts and flare screens put the motion offense fundamentals to the test with this live drill. Coach is the passer. Player beginning the drill in the high elbow is the screener throughout the possession. Correct poor timing and incorrect reads immediately. At any time during the possession a player can pass to coach and the two offensive players set screening action. Empasize the second cutter concept. Coach can pass to screener or cutter off downscreens or flare screens. Coach can force rescreens by not passing to the action. Drill is run on one side of the floor at a time. Drill consists of action off of downscreens, flares, slips, rescreens, cuts. No excessive dribbling ball screens. Coach is always open! Use them and score with action. Put your roster in pairs with one screener and one cutter and play for 8:00 (4:00 on each side of the floor) You come into the drill on defense with your partner. To get to offense, you have to get a stop, rebound and outlet to coach. Rotate from defense to offense. If you score you stay and new pair comes in on defense. The drill begins with pass from high elbow (1) to coach. Emphasize basket cut into the downscreen. Variations/Restrictions: Instead of passing to coach, start with a shallow cut. Pass to coach, make a deep basket cut, wing fills the high elbow setting up flare screen. Only a second cutter (screener) can score. See More

Basketball Play - Transition Build Up

Transition Build Up

FastModel Sports 03/03/2015

Practicing transition offense and defense by nature creates a conditioning drill, but combining that with a 20 second shot clock (which can be lowered as your team gets in better shape and more comfortable with this drill) produces major back and forth action and gets your team running while also working on fundamental skills…and it’s fun too!

Basketball Play - 2 Minute Continuous Lay-Ups

2 Minute Continuous Lay-Ups

FastModel Sports 03/03/2015

Start by splitting your team into two lines at half court, about 30-40 feet apart. Every player in one of the lines should have a ball. Players are going to be shooting lay-ups at both baskets continuously for 2 minutes. The drill begins at the same time on both baskets. Player 1 passes a cross to Player 7, who passes right back to Player 1 for a lay-up. The player shooing the lay-up is not allowed to dribble, so the pass must be in the correct spot to lead them into their shot. Simultaneously, Player 4 passes a cross to Player 10, who passes right back to Player 4 for a lay-up. Both passers (Players 7 and 10) rebound the lay-ups and dribble to the line on the opposite side of the court (the shooting line). Both lay-up shooters (Player 1 and Player 4) sprint to the line opposite them (the passing line). The drill continues with the next pair of players performing the same give and go motion (Player 2 with Player 8 and Player 5 with Player 11) for lay-up attempts. As the drill progresses, the lines disappear as everyone is forced to be moving to keep the drill alive. See More

Pick & Roll Shooting Drill

Kyle Gilreath 02/12/2015

This set of pick & roll shooting drills is one of my favorites for player development. There are 189 total moves below to work on different pick & roll coverages and methods of attack at the three most popular angles. In order to keep your workouts efficient and energetic, take just one action and focus on 3-4 moves within that action from all three angles. Do not allow your players to just go through the motions, set a goal to reach during each set. Example: You MUST make 7-10 before moving to the next sequence. See More

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
