Basketball Play - Player Development: Diamond Defensive Drill

Player Development: Diamond Defensive Drill

Tony Miller 07/06/2018

I firmly believe that every team should work on defensive closeouts and lateral slides in some way EVERY practice. This drill incorporates both of these skills into one drill. Coaches can set up multiple diamonds on the court. Have each player go 3-4 times then switch with a partner. Make the drill competitive by timing players.

Sergey Tkachenko 07/04/2018

Drill to work on cutting to get open, then attacking the rim on the dribble to finish strong. Vary the finishes and emphasize strong cuts, staying low and being in triple threat position. Switch sides of the court after designated number of reps. On the FMS Blog: Finish Like a Pro - Drills to Improve Scoring at the Basket Click for more #PlayerDevelopmentWeek content! See More

Basketball Play - Dribble Drive Motion: Finishing at the Rim

Dribble Drive Motion: Finishing at the Rim

null null 07/04/2018

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 second installment we are looking at "Finishing at the Rim". What we are hoping for our players is that they can finish at the rim from multiple angles, and with a variety of finishes. The "1/0 Technique" Drill below makes our players finish from the three most common angles within our offense; 1) The Slot Drive, 2) The Wing Drive from the Corner, and the 3) Baseline Drive. We want our players to feel comfortable finishing with at least 1-2 different techniques from both their strong hand and their weak hand. So over the course of the season we will emphasize these finishes; 1) Extended Arm, 2) Scoop, 3) Inside Hand, 4) Stride Stop, 5) Jump Stops, & 6) Reverse Pivots. The "1/1 and 2/2 Russian" Drills are good once we have moved beyond the Phase A portion of finishing. Those two drills are not only fun for the players, but represent very common finishing opportunities within our offense, 1) The Slot Drive with an advantage and 2) The Drop Pass.

Basketball Play - Dribble Drive Motion: 1v1 Dribble Attacks

Dribble Drive Motion: 1v1 Dribble Attacks

null null 07/04/2018

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 first installment we are looking at developing "Dribble Attacks." These are quick and simple dribble attacks that we emphasize in both the half court and transition settings. Mainly we are looking at attacking a defender who is isolated in the elbow or slot area. We would like our players to make a quick aggressive move and attack that defender to the rim. The three "Dribble Attacks" that we teach are 1) In & Out Dribble, 2) Hesitation, and 3) Crossover. The 1v1 Dribble Attacks Drill Below is a simple drill but one that will combine Dribble Attacks and Finishing at the Rim. The two versions represent two common tactics; sagging defenses and overly aggressive on-ball defenses.

Basketball Play - 11 Man Fast Break Drill

11 Man Fast Break Drill

null null 06/24/2018

The 11 Man Fastbreak is one of our players' favorite drills. It is essentially a continous 3 on 2 transition drill that we use to emphasize pitch aheads and "Finding Advantages." This is generally a drill where I try not to blow the whistle much, but I will blow the whistle if we are straying from our transtion principles. I generally choose to emphasize 1) Running the Sideline Hard, 2) Hunting Pitch Ahead Passes, 3) Keeping Advantages Alive, and 4) Attacking the Rim.
