Here’s what we did for week 1 of practice with our 7th graders. I’ll paste our practice plan and links to the drills we used.
We have 14 players and 4 baskets. We had two practices. Each practice lasted 2 hours.
We followed the same format both days… just tweaked the drills and emphasis a little bit.
Dynamic Warm Up (link to warm up)
Dribbling & Finishing
3 cone groove finishes:
– basic lay ups – left and right
– shoulder finish – left and right
– reverse lay up
– 2 foot push / long lay up
In place dribbling – retreat and fan
Split dribble moves (touch cone) into jump shot
1 v 1 Overlap – Defense & Ballhandling (link to drill)
Half Court Scrimmage
Work on all aspects of man to man defense, motion offense, and rebounding. First to 8 points wins. 2 games.
Full Court Scrimmage
Focus on transition and half court execution. First to 6 wins, then shake hands, sub, and play again. (High intensity games)
If you have any questions about the drills or practice plan, let me know. Hope this helps give you some ideas for your practices.
