Why You Should Utilize Small-Sided Competitive Game-like Drills
There are FIVE main reasons why this type of drill is so important...
Reason #1 - Players can't hide in the drills
One thing you'll notice as you're watching this DVD is that players can't hide in the drills. They're forced to adapt and get better. In 5on5, 4on4, or even 3on3, it's easy for a player to hide. They can simply avoid the ball and avoid scenarios they're not comfortable with.
If you require all your players to run these drills, everyone will improve. There's no way to hide. When you put players in challenging drills, they are forced to get out of their comfort zone and will improve very quickly!
Reason #2 - You should "train the way you play"
Most coaches and skill development trainers agree that you should "train the way you play." This is one of the things we like most about the drills -- they're simulating what actually happens in a game versus something like dribbling through cones or shooting in lay up lines with no pressure. As you watch the drills, you'll notice they are very game-like and as a result they develop skills that translate extremely well into 5on5 games.
Reason #3 - The drills are fun!
Players really enjoy these drills. And as a result they work hard, show enthusiasm, they look forward to practice, and the entire team just has a better overall attitude for improvement.
Reason #4 - Multi-purpose drills that are efficient
These drills are very efficient. Almost all of the drills serve multiple purposes and allow you to get more done in less time. You'll even see some drills that allow you to work on ball handling, defense, conditioning, agility, and finishing lay ups all at the same time.
Reason #5 - Players get more touches
Finally, these drills give players more touches on the ball. In traditional 5on5, 4on4, and 3on3 games... players only get to touch the ball so many times. We believe from an offensive skill stand point, you want players to have a ball in their hands as often as possible. By utilizing these small-sided competitive drills, players get more reps, more touches, and as a result they get better faster.
We have found that the traditional drills will only take you so far. Once you reach a certain point you need to add competitive game-like drills that propel your players to the next level.
We personally run at least one of these drills in every single one of our practices and have found that they have helped us take the next level and dramatically speed up the development of our players.
Disclaimer -- These are Not for Complete Beginners
The drills on the DVD are versatile and effective drills for ALL levels -- youth, middle school, high school, and college. However, they are NOT for complete beginners.
For example, if you have players that struggle dribbling with their left hand in a zig zag type of drill or have players that can't make layups in standard lay up lines, you'll first want to get them capable of finishing in a non-competitive drill. Once players can handle those things, then you can add the competitive aspects and you'll find that these are going to translate extremely well into your games.

It even gets the parents off their cell phones & actually watch their child practice. I look good too implementing new & different drills every practice.
First I was quoted a delivery of 10-20 days as im based in the United Kingdom, it arrived in 3 - fantastic service!!
Second this is a fantastic resource with a wide range of drills and a resource that any Coach will be able to find something of use in.
Very happy with the product and would recommend highly!
Traditional drills provide traditional results.
Would definitely recommend this DVD for any coach
or team that wants a competitive edge.
One valuable aspect of the competitive drills is that they already prove to be a great tool for assessing my players' fundamentals. In practice, we go back and forth, drilling fundamentals (such as footwork, dribling etc) first and then applying them in game-like situations, using the competitive drills from the DVD.
Here, we get a clear picture of where each player needs to improve and can go back to drilling fundamentals in a more focused manner.
I definitely recommend the DVD to all youth coaches who need to fill up their toolbox.
Middle school coaches Don"t Play Zones!!!
Excellent way to put players into controlled game like situations. Coaches of younger players will need to watch overly aggressive players and these drills provide ways of doing this to provide competitions in a controlled safe environment. I modify these drills to support offensive and defensive situations I am trying to enforce almost every practice.
I can highly recommend the DVD and the values that will accrue.
competitive drills when I purchased this DVD and I was not dissapointed . The game like drills are very easy to teach and as the DVD says, the players have nowhere to Hide
this vidio is better than great,it not only
refreshed an old coaches memory but has really
helped my current team with some new drills
that they really enjoy.
We all like to think our offenses provide great opportunities for easy buckets. We drill and drill in practice till things look good. And when the game is played, we scratch our heads at the number of missed lay ups. The chief reason is that during the game, our cutters are being challenged in ways that it’s difficult to replicate in practice.
This DVD will teach you drills to get a high number of finishing reps around the basket in a very short period of time, allowing you plenty of time to work on other skills.
There are only two great plays in this world; Phantom of the Opera, and put the ball in the hoop. Check this video out, and get more of the latter.
