"Pro Coach Reveals Simplified Process to Develop Post and Perimeter Players"
Discover How to Accelerate the Learning Process and Develop High Scoring and Highly Skilled Post Players
Dear Basketball Coach,
This book was written by Don Kelbick and we think you're going to love it because it offers very unique and effective development methods for all coaches…
If you have ever tried to teach "moves" to a post player, you'll appreciate the methods shared in this ebook. They greatly simplify and speed up the learning process for post and perimeter players.
Post Player Development Simplified and Accelerated
Instead of teaching 20 or more post moves, you'll learn how the pros teach only 5 movements and 3 shots. That's it.
Believe it or not, many of the pros use a much simpler method to teach post moves. And this method works extremely well at all levels - from youth players to the professional level.
How else will this ebook help you simplify and accelerate the teaching process? Here's a quick summary…
- You'll learn a simplified (and more effective) way to teach footwork.
- You'll learn a simplified (and more effective) way to teach post moves.
- You'll learn a simplified (and more effective) way for post players to get open.
- You'll learn a simplified (and more effective) way to feed the post.
- You'll learn a simplified (and more effective) way for post players to receive the ball where they want it.
- You'll learn a simplified (and more effective) way to teach post players how to react and make their move. (And it's not checking the defense by turning your head.)
- You'll learn an easier (and more effective) way to teach skill and develop habits.
Since Don's player development methods make things easier to learn, players can pick up the concepts much faster. As a result, their learning and development accelerates.
Many times coaches paralyze players with TOO many moves and make them think too much. The opposite is true with Don's player development methods. Players only learn a few simple movements. They quickly learn how to react without thinking.
The foundation is simple and can be picked up quickly. The players have no limits on how far they can grow and develop.
Post Play Should be Taught to ALL Positions at ALL Levels (Youth and Up)
In all of Don Kelbick's years working with players, whether they are youth, high school, college or professional players, he always starts in the post. He has had tremendous success using this method. It works because the footwork, positioning and mentality of post play is beneficial for all players, of any age and any position.
In addition, post play should be taught at all levels of the game. Much has been said and written about big players who are very skilled because when they were younger and smaller they were developed as guards. In turn, they retain those skills as they go through growth spurts (Kevin Garnett).
And let's look at the other side of the coin. When players are young, you don't know what the finished product will be. The tallest player on your 12-year-old team might wind up as the smallest player on their high school team. The reverse is also possible. However, the teaching and learning process should not discriminate for size.
Footwork Simplified and Explained in Detail
If you've been involved with basketball for any amount of time, you should already know that footwork is arguably the most important skill for coaches to teach and players to learn. However, most coaches don't really know what that means.
This ebook is a must read just for the footwork concepts alone!
If you've ever wanted to learn what footwork is and how to teach it effectively, then you need this ebook. Even though the ebook was written for post players, the footwork concepts apply to all positions. Don teaches the exact same way.
You will learn exactly how to teach footwork to all levels and all types of players. The explanation and illustrations of footwork in this ebook are exceptional. It's described in a very simple way. Even though this ebook is about post play, this is something that ALL coaches should understand.
Just read the reviews from other coaches at the bottom of this page.
Don's terminology greatly simplifies the process of teaching footwork to all your players. It's the same no matter what position you play. It's stupidly simple and I don't understand why everyone doesn't teach it this way. I guess most coaches just aren't aware of this method. We weren't!
Teaching Post Play is No Longer an Option, It's a Necessity
The game of basketball has changed. 30 years ago most offenses operated in a triangle formation. The post player would receive the ball with their back to the basket and pass or make their move from there.
Today the motion and spread offenses have taken over. You see the flex, swing, 2-3, 4-1, and various offenses where many of the players are interchangeable. As a result, the bigger taller players have moved farther away from the basket. And all players (including the small ones) are catching the ball in or near the paint.
If more players are going to post up or catch the ball in the post area, coaches must find time to train those individuals on post play.
Teaching post play for ALL positions is no longer an option, it's a necessity.

After reading the book I watched Kobe Bryant use these same techniques on the floor. He is one of the greats at pivotting and counters to get his man out of position before he puts the ball on the floor. Many times Kobe just pivots two or three times and gets an easy wide open jump shot from 15' or step through in the paint. I have watched three NBA games since then and he is the only one incorporating these moves into his game, no wonder he is in the top 3 in scoring every year.
Breakthrough Basketball has been my best resource in developing my youth teams.
We know those footworks, but the way to teach my students make them more and more easy to use when they are on court.
This is one of my most useful stuff that help our team, i am sure that!!
Very good book.
I've many e-books from Breakthrough Basketball.
They are formidable !
It's for me a very good tool for my practices!
Thank you very much !
Coach André Barbieux, from Belgium
My son is new to b'ball and at 12 doesn't get much post play coaching, this has helped me coach him and is easy for him to understand. highly recommend it.
Once again you guys have put out a great training tool. The post play
footwork diagrams are great. I would recommend all of your e-books to
any coaches that really want there players to excel (except the coaches
in my division :) ) Thanx.
Well put together, easy to follow.
I will use this for my girls team for the 2010 season.
Thanks for the opportunity.
I really like the progression and the footwork proposed.
A book that is definitely a reference and a working tool.
I loved the fact that it focused on post players but made it revelent to all ball players.
A great peice of work
Coach Jim McGannon
This book is great for the Novice coach as well as the more "seasoned" ones. I was always a firm believer of the KISS method and Don's approach to FOOTWORK is as a good as any I have seen. The explanation is clear and concise making it easy for coaches at any level of play. His explanations of POST PLAY are amazingly simple to understand and implement. Don talks about our success or lack of success at various levels of play. His approach to the basics of playing the game and the development of Post Players is excellent.
IF I would known of this approach when I was coaching, I know that I would have done a much better job with my post players. I definitely recommend this book to any coach who is serious about helping his Post Players become more complete basketball players.
