Maximize your talent by working hard every day – take care of your business !!

 

1) MOVES OFF THE DRIBBLE

 

Two Dribble Pullup – hard second dribble into shot, one / two step (don’t hop into shot)

 

Step Back – If you can’t get by him, get AWAY from him!

Dip inside shoulder and press hard off inside foot to created space

Keep shoulders forward as you prepare to shoot

* Add the Drive and Crossover off of Stepback

 

2) MOVES OFF THE CATCH ON THE WING

Forearm Post - make contact, post with forearm in defenders chest and open to middle of floor

1. Rip Through 2. Spin 3. Jab / Shot 4. Jab / 1 Dribble Stepback

 

4) LOST ART OF MOVING WITHOUT THE BALL

 

A. Why is it a lost art?

1. Most plays are designed to be either 1 on 1 or 2 on 2

2. Every player feels that they have to handle the ball to be involved and/or effective

3. It is too much work to move and not get the ball

 

B. Once you learn to move without the ball you will:

1. Understand how important movement is to offense

2. Be a better player

3. Know that a person in perpetual motion is harder to defend

4. Score more often and easier

 

C. In order to score you must be able to get open (WIDE OPEN)

1. U.S.- Uncontested shots

2. Traffic light for shooting based on if you are open or not

a. Green

b. Yellow

c. Red

 

5) SHOOTING DRILLS

 

1. UP-THE HILL/DOWN THE HILL SHOOTING DRILL

 

-Coach or teammate stand at top of key w/ball use chest pass!

-Use 3 chairs, space them 4ft apart!

1. Put the 1st chair inside the 3 pt line 2 ft. from baseline

2. Mid-post extended is the 2nd chair

3. Elbow extended is the 3rd chair

(All chairs inside 3-pt line)

 

UP THE HILL:

-Start on the wing, sprint to baseline, touch w/outside foot and curl into chair catch-n-shoot!

-Sprint back to wing, then go back to baseline, curl into mid-post and do the same @ elbow!
