drive-to-the-basket-3

Objective:
A) feint your dribbleB
) drive to the basket

Organization:

  • flow form (pass and chase your ball, take over your predecessor's position)
  • the drive to the basket starts at the half way line, against the sideline.
  • dribble start
  • Feint your dribble
  • accelerate
  • In line with the free throw line cross the three point line and lay up.
  • pass-stations at the guard position and the opposite forward position.
  • If necessary, use pawns to determine your position.
  • always fake a pass from the ball intake in the opposite direction of the pass. Move the foot and the ball quickly and briefly (on the diagram, the left foot). Then place the foot in front of the ball, release the pivot foot, pass and continue immediately.
  • Ball is below knee height, knees bent at 90 degrees.
  • Crossover step and with 1 bounce + lay up to the basket.
  • catch the ball yourself, put one foot in the direction of the outlet, release the pivot foot, pass and continue directly.

TIP:

Put pawns down as defenders to force change of direction

Teaching Points:

  • adjust on the outside hand
  • Knees slightly bent on receiving pass
  • Protect the ball next to the body
  • At every dribble start, the ball and foot should hit the ground at the same time.
  • Feints on the pass must be short and fierce.
  • move the foot and ball during feints
  • after the feint, accelerate on the dribble and finish at top speed

Variations:

  • backup dribble (start with the right and continue)
  • Tapping during the dribble (start on the right and continue)
  • crossover (start on the left, continue with the right and finish)
  • start on the right, corssover and finish through the middle with the left
  • stop + jump shot instead of lay up
  • from the left side

Requirements:
players must be able to individually drive and shoot from the 3-point line

Goal:
train drive, distance shot, rotation and inside-out pass

Organization:

  • the teams play 3 against 3 half court
  • make it, take it
  • only lay ups and 3 pointers are allowed
  • play to the 5

Teaching Points:

players without the ball immediately look for a shooting position when a team-mate starts a drive in such a way that the passing line comes open.

Variations:

  • mandatory penetration and stop with jump stop or 2TR (= train pivoting and passing out. And you can see if the players without the ball rotate correctly.)
  • Mandatory pass fake before a drive or shot = train fakes and create space for yourself
  • mandatory cutting after pass (direct score from give and go is allowed) = more traffic in the bucket, so when to penetrate and when not to penetrate. And how do you rotate?
  • with a center who is always playable in and around the bucket and can score. = Train shooting and driving in conjunction with the center's movements.

back-byback-byback-by

Requirements:
players must be able to run a lay up from a bounce pass

Goal: learn
how to punish the overplaying of the forward by an aggressive defense

Organization:

  • guard dribbles up from behind the centre circle
  • at the same moment the centre 4 comes to the elbow
  • and player 3 sprints to the pawn
  • 1 passes to 4 with a bounce pass
  • 3 sprints to the basket with a sharp change of direction and speed
  • and receives the bounce pass from 4


Rotation:

  • 4 grabs the rebound
  • and takes the ball on the back line
  • 3 goes to defend the inbound pass
  • when 9 receives the ball, 7 takes position at the sideline for the next inbound pass
  • 4 and 5 do not rotate but take turns.
  • 1 joins the line behind the pawn
  • 9 passes the ball to 8 and joins the row behind it


Variation:

  • 1 pretends he is going to put a screen away on the weak side, but cuts to 4 for a hand off
  • takes the shot
  • OR plays pick and roll with 4


Teaching Points:

  • Sprint to the pawn: when passing, you as the attacker must take the defender well outside the three-point line to create enough space for the back door.
  • 1 must feint immediately after the pass to be in time for the hand-off.

3-against-0-drive-and-pass3-against-0-drive-and-pass

) pass out to the shooter from the bucket3
) players without the ball respond to penetration

Organization:

  • penetration ends with jump stop
  • pass to the shooter
  • immediately find a position outside the three-point line.
  • at least 3 penetrations
  • score only with shots
  • play up to the 5 scores


Teaching points:

  • the two players without the ball are always actively creating blans in the space division
  • be playable at a place from where you can shoot or drive directly
  • drive with the right hand is to rotate clockwise; counterclockwise with a left dribble
  • OR other agreements you have within your team

1-against-1-plus-help-quarter-field

Requirements:

  • players must be able to drive and shoot from the 3-point line
  • must know what defending ball side and weak side is

Objective:

1) recognize that the defender is giving maximum pressure on the shot and therefore there is room for the drive2
) see the help coming3
) learn way to play off the help as well

Organization:

  • attacker 1 gives a bounce pass to himself on the forward position
  • defender 2 is allowed to move when the ball hits the ground
  • the attacker pivots so that he can shoot
  • free shot (i.e. the ball is not touched by the defender) is a point for the attacker
  • dribble stopped and score prevented by defender 2 is one point for the defender
  • defender 3 starts with one foot in the bucket and is not allowed to move until the ball touches the ground at the start of the drive
  • defender 3 earns one point when he prevents a score by the broken through attacker
  • play until the 3

Teaching points:

  • attackers when picking up the ball immediately pivot and take triple threat position
  • Defender 2 has to start explosively and bridge the last one and a half metres with mini-slides.
  • one hand high, in the shooter's field of vision
  • the foot on the ball side is behind
  • (OR other agreements you have within the team)

Attacker:

  • with a crossover step around the help and finish with a power move
  • stop with a jump stop after the first dribble and finish with a jump shot, fade away or rocker step

Helper

  • estimate on which side the attacker will drive
  • quick first step
  • attacker may never pass between defender 2 and helper

10-fingers-1

Prerequisites:
players must be able to individually pivot and drive from the 3-point line

  • Finish with lay up
  • Catch it yourself, dribble to the corner of the court on the other side than where you started.
  • pass the ball to the man in the back and connect with him.
  • Everyone in line moves up 1 position

Teaching points:

  • always make a front move while making the front pivot (face the basket)
  • Adjust on the outside hand, high
  • Sit deep in the spin
  • Pass the ball below knee height
  • After the turn, feet pointing to the basket
  • Knees strongly bent after the turn
  • shoulders above the feet

1-against-1-plus-help-with-pawn

Requirements:
players must be able to drive and shoot from the free throw line

Goal: 1)
see
the
help coming2)
judge if you have time to run a lay up or if you should stop and shoot

Organization:

  • attacker 1 dribbles in the indicated direction around the pawn
  • defender 2 simulates the helper
  • defender 3 simulates the defender who just passed the dribbler
  • each player attacks x times


Teaching points:
during the dribble, assess the speed of the helper and make a decision

Variations:

  • by moving the helper's pawn further away from the ring, there is more room for a lay up
  • Move the pawn closer to the ring to stimulate a stop and a jump shot.

Requirements:
players must be able to drive and shoot from the 3-point line

Goal: get free
at the forward position and improve scoring ability from that position

Organization:

  • attacker 1 receives the pass from 2 after a shallow cut
  • and plays 1 against 1 against defender 4
  • 2 waits for 2 seconds and runs a shallow cut to the other side of the basket and plays 1 against 1 against 5
  • defender counts down aloud as soon as the attacker has the ball in his hands: 23, 22, 21.
  • If the ball has not yet touched the ring, the point goes to the defender.
  • loser of the 1 against 1 goes to defend
  • winner takes the ball and runs outside to the back of the row
  • play until the 7 (defender gets a point if he stops the attacker from scoring)


Teaching points:

  • first cut to the basket
  • then change direction and speed hard to the three-point line
  • Ask for the ball on the outside
  • face the basket immediately after receiving the ball
  • use the front or reverse pivot immediately as a feint
  • read in this pivoting movement on which side the defender leaves room (shot, crossover or open step)
  • sit deep in the turn
  • high speed of action: with a maximum of one feint, unbalance the defender and move to the basket
  • Play with full intensity!


Tip:

if the attacker does not read well and always makes only the action he is good at, instruct the defender how to defend it. In this way, the attacker is forced to first look at where the space is and only then make his decision
