Basketball Play - 4v4 Neutral Restrictions

4v4 Neutral Restrictions

Michael Lynch 08/31/2018

Using four out perimeter spacing we try to recreate game like situations in the short sided game (SSG) format. Here we have our most common actions within our Dribble Drive Motion system. Starting the SSG in a neutral scenario, it is up to the offense to use a pre-determined action to create A) a Double Gap and B) Drive the Basketball into it. Coaches can pre-determine the action or simply allow players to create freely. See videos below for game examples of these actions!

Basketball Play - Go Gets: Shot, Go, Pass

Go Gets: Shot, Go, Pass

Mike Shaughnessy 08/21/2018

Here is a progression to my last post call "Go Gets". This drill adds in verbal or non-verbal communication forcing the players to be shot ready before catching the ball and have to react quickly within sustaining the correct habits. This also adds different actions working on passing and re-spacing on kick outs into different actions. It's a great way to have fun and challenge your players through just playing basketball (pass, move, drive, finish, shoot).

Basketball Play - Advance Pass Closeouts

Advance Pass Closeouts

Mike Shaughnessy 08/17/2018

Here is a 1v1 drill that I use to put a sense of urgency on all of the players involved. It develops our guards to get in a habit of advancing the ball over half court with the pass, sprint to the corner in transition, and defensively sprint back to the paint before fanning out to their match up. Take a look and hopefully it is something that you can add to your workouts or practices for your players. See More

Basketball Play - Pick & Roll Decision Making

Pick & Roll Decision Making

Mike Shaughnessy 08/17/2018

Great for group workouts forcing the players involved to communicate. Instead of just dictating who is shooting & passing, the ball-handler is forced to make a decision based off their teammates communication. Everyone involved in the drill is held accountable through every detail. The ball-handler has to come off with pace and use their eyes to see what's in front of them and their teammate before making a decision. The ball-handler's teammate has to be vocal and be shot ready. The drill will only go as smooth as the players communcation and togetherness. It forces them to take ownership as they must do when they get to the season. View: Mike Shaughnessy #FastModelTakeover - Twitter Moment See More

Basketball Play - Nail Drive & Kick: 1v1 Closeout

Nail Drive & Kick: 1v1 Closeout

Mike Shaughnessy 08/17/2018

One of the best ways to create catch & shoot 3's is by getting dribble penetration into the paint, forcing the defense to collapse, kicking out for rhythm shots. In this drill, there is decision making involved for the ball handler to make the correct pass once they get downhill into the box. The decision making that is added to this drill allows players to develop making quick decisions and ultimately making the right play. The best way to collapse a defense and force them to scramble is by having all 5 players on the floor with the ability to make the drive, pass, or shot.

Basketball Play - Boston College 4v4 Transition Drill

Boston College 4v4 Transition Drill

Michael Lynch 08/13/2018

The progression of drills is really effective in this Boston College "Fast Break Concepts" video created by Coach Chris Oliver of @BballImmersion. The 4v4 Transition Drill that begins at about the 7:00 mark was one that I thought was particularly useful. The Offense starts with a slight 4 v 2 advantage and seeks to make a pitch ahead pass for a score. Whether the offense misses or makes, the defense will then take the ball back up the court 4v4.

Basketball Play - SGP Shooting Series

SGP Shooting Series

Zachary Weir 07/24/2018

SGP Shooting Series is a drill that we run daily. It is a great drill for building not only shooting, passing, and dribbling skills - but also chemistry between players. This drill is used as a drill to work on reads versus defense and passing accuracy as well. We really stress pace of play in our offense and this drill is great for getting the players to feel the speed and pace they need to work at. Rules for the drill: Our goal is 10 shots per 1 min. With our better shooters we will go 12 per 1 min. We will go 12 minutes ideally, but on days that we fit this series into our individual drills we will go at the very least 8 minutes. You must thank the passer when you make a shot. You must call out the action that you are performing - i.e, curl, fade, etc. Alternate in air passes and bounce passes. Progression Coach as a defender Add secondary defender to read if players are ready Can also have the ball handler make a move off the dribble instead of triple threat See More

Basketball Play - Dribble Drive Motion: Chair Drill

Dribble Drive Motion: Chair Drill

Michael Lynch 07/04/2018

As part of #PlayerDevelopmentWeek I am putting together a series of drill progressions that we use in order to develop skills to fit our Dribble Drive Motion Offense. in this last installment we are focusing on "Shooting". On top of developing our players' ability to attack, finish & come to clean stops we want our players to be able to make the "Quick Pitch" pass vs helping defenses. We want all of our players who are not involved in the drive to the rim to have a "Catch to Shoot" mentality. We play heavy emphasis on players catching the basketball with the ability to rise up and shoot immediately. The "Chair Drill" presented below is a staple 2/0 Shooting Drill that is designed to shoot the three most common Drive & Kick opportunities that our players get. Players get 2-3 shots at each of the three locations, and then the same is repeated on the opposite end of the floor. This drill is one that could be easily tweaked and catered to fit your offense's most common shots as well.
