I would wonder if you have some sort of videos showing all these great drills. I do understand viewing it in action gives any reader of any level the proper execution for such. Thanks though I applied them in my amateur coaching.
Hopefully your site will thus provide some videos for all these helpful drills.
If you look at the drill purpose, this is a drill built around offensive improvement.
If you would like to make this a defensive drill, just allow more dribbling.
And one dribble does not ensure an outside shot only, it help teaches youth players the value of the dribble. too many kids just catch and dribble. If you apply this rule, it forces them to get somewhere with the dribble and utilize jabs, shot fakes, and dribbles.
Dribbling-around does not work when you get to higher levels of basketball.
If the kids are younger, allow 2 or 3 dribbles and make the drill work for you.
sir you just illustrated the first move form the first offender and the deffender how can you do this sponteneously ... how many balls needed and who will get the ball if the offender makes a shot ....i appreciate this drill
The intention of the drill is not to shoot jump shots. It is to make sure that the players make use of their dribble rather than catching it and instantly putting it on the ground. Once the level of competition increases, fewer dribbles are needed to get to the basket to beat the defense.
You can to take a straight-path to the hoop with the fewest amount of dribbles. I only let 13 & 14 year olds take 1 or 2 dribbles when doing lay ups from the 3-point line.
You're right. I tried the drill with my players and they could get to the basket in only 3 dribbles. They really surprised me. They liked this drill a lot. But what I found was that it was always the fastest runners that always got the ball and the slower players were always on defense.
Another teaching point you should add is that the coach should switch up the pairings so that the players are not always against the same guys all the time.
sir, my queries is not yet been answered .... the ilustration of the drill was only played by the first player infront of the line..... how could this drill be executed spontenously ? i mean the practice will be done with no stoping untill the last two players. could 3 to 5 basketball be used? hope u get my point and the significance of doing this practice spontenously.
This very well could be my team saver. I have primarily small 7th and 8th grade kids. When they get the ball on the wing they basically freeze. No dribble, no look to pass. They hunch over the ball. This drill will, hopefully, instill the instinct to go to the hoop. Anything else you can suggest for small kids who freeze when they get the ball on the wings?
