Advanced 'See the Court' Drill

Purpose of the Drill

This drill addresses the same spacing and court vision goals that the Basic 'See the Court' Drill does, but it adds some demands that require players to react to more game-like triggers and to perform reverse pivots and a variety of passes on the spur of the moment. Therefore, it is best used with advanced junior-high levels and up. Make sure to read the Basic 'See the Court' Drill first. Otherwise, you may not understand some of the concepts in the drill.


Instructions

  1. The coach stands just in front of the basket and throws to any player at the three-point arc. That player immediately drives toward the hoop. In our example, we use the 'Drive From the Wing' scenario.
   Advanced Spacing 1

  1. The coach moves out to defend on Player 3, who passes to any player on the three-point arc.
   Advanced Spacing 2

  1. Next, the coach moves over to stop Player 4's drive. Player 4 passes to any player on the three-point arc. In our example, he throws to Player 1 at the top of the key.
   Advanced Spacing 3

  1. If the coach does not rotate over to prevent the drive, the driving player continues in for a lay-in. In our example, the coach remains at the right low block, and Player 2 shoots a lay-in.
   Advanced Spacing 4

Progressions:

  • As the player drives, the coach shouts out a player's name. The player has to stop and throw a pass to who ever the coach designates. In our example, the coach shouts out Player 4's name.

    Optional: If the coach wants to get more specific. He can also choose what type of pivot or type of pass they want the dribble penetrator to use. For example, on every pass, they have to do a reverse pivot and throw a chest pass.

   Advanced Spacing 1

  • If the coach adds the word, "Hot," to the player's name, then that player will shoot a jumper on the catch.

    In the diagram to the right, if Player 1's name was Bob, he would yell "Bob Hot." Then Player 3 would pass the ball to Bob (Player 1) and he would shoot the ball.
   Advanced Spacing 2

Points of Emphasis:

  • Passes should be crisp and well-placed so that the players on the perimeter could catch and shoot with minimal adjustment.


  • Players should assume position on both sides of the court. Adjustments are ideal after a lay-in or a perimeter shot.
Motivation/Teaching Tips:

  • Challenge players so that they have to perform a range of pivots and passing types and angles.


  • Praise players for well-executed, advanced techniques.


  • Insist on game-like speed and intensity.

Highlight with your mouse what you want to print. Go up to 'File' and select 'Print'. After that, click on the 'selection' button, then click on the print button and it should only print what you highlighted.

P.S. We have formatted it to print. It does not include the left-hand menu and it aligns the instructions with diagrams.

Some people like to print out the comments as well.

Can you show illustrations/diagrams of the triangle offense and the "pick and roll"? Your tips were helpful as I have a hard time in coaching on offense, defense and plays. I have a lot of points now in my mind.
