    Sylvia Hatchell puts her 40+ years of coaching expertise on display while teaching you zone offense strategies to against some of the most widely used zone defenses in today's game. If your team struggles to beat a zone, then using these offensive concepts and set plays can help improve your scoring chances. From general zone concepts and offensive setup, to set plays and baseline out of bounds situations, this comprehensive zone offense video will kick your offense into high gear and frustrate your opponents on defense.

    Zone Concepts and Offensive Scheme

    Coach Hatchell begins with over a dozen concepts that are relevant on offense against any type of zone defense. Incorporating them into your current zone offense will help your team increase its scoring opportunities and confidence when playing versus a zone.

    Next, she shows her team's basic offensive shell and concepts versus any zone. This is a continuity system that allows athletes to play to their strengths and beat the defense inside the paint or out. The system Hatchell teaches works perfectly with the set plays that she demonstrates and has clearly-defined roles for her perimeter and post players to maximize efficiency.

    Attacking the Zone

    From the offensive shell, Hatchell transitions into zone entries and gives a handful of entries to get the ball moving inside the post and around the perimeter to shift the zone out of position. These sets are designed to keep offensive players moving continuously and cohesively to get quality, high percentage shots.

    Finally, Hatchell dives deep into her playbook to bring you 10 of her best zone plays. These sets are simple and effective, and if run correctly will yield a variety of scoring opportunities from all over the floor. There are scoring options for perimeter, mid-range, and close shots around the basket, including a lob play.

    In addition to the offensive sets, you'll learn one of her favorite out of bounds plays that legendary offensive guru Mike D'Antoni dubbed 'one of the best plays he's ever seen.'

    Any coach who wants their team to get better at beating zone defenses will appreciate the detail that Coach Hatchell provides in this video. This is one of the most complete videos covering zone offense on the market and you'll be sure to find multiple ideas that you can implement immediately!

    with Jerrod Calhoun,
    Youngstown State University Head Coach;
    former Fairmont State University Head Coach;
    2017 Division II NCAA National Championship Runner-up;
    4x NCAA Tournament Appearances

    Up-and-coming head coach Jerrod Calhoun has proven to be successful at taking a program to the next level. Through his up-tempo transition style of play, he guided Fairmont State to four consecutive Division II NCAA Tournament appearances including the National Championship runner-up finish in 2017.

    Calhoun's team utilizes the terminology and language that today's NBA coaches use. In this video, you'll get an inside look at how to teach transition offense through various high-level drills and philosophies.

    Philosophy

    All transition offenses begin with a defensive rebound. As Calhoun demonstrates, everything starts with getting the ball up the floor and into the middle third of the floor. Once the ball is in the front court, Calhoun teaches terminology to keep his players on the same page. The "Philly" call means a side pick & roll, "Tony" is a screen re-screen action, and "Bingo" means to reject the ball screen.

    Using these calls, players are able to create a dynamic and fast-paced transition offense using a ball screen.

    Drills

    Starting with 3-on-0 and building into 5-on-0, Calhoun demonstrates how to create multiple scoring options and go right into his half court offense. As players come off or reject the ball screen, they turn the corner and look to attack the paint. Athletes can look to score in numerous ways as they move around, including a corner three, dump pass to the post, trail post shot, or pass to the big on the pick & roll.

    In the Read Drill, your players will learn to attack the defense and take what is given to them by reading coaches/managers as they come off the screen. Coaches in the drill will jump to the paint to help on the drive, stick with the shooter, or stay with the post. Players must be able to read the defense and take advantage of the scoring opportunity.

    To teach players how to pass or spray ahead, Coach Calhoun uses Wave Passing and Spray Ahead Passing to train his team to hit an open player right in the hands. He teaches how to focus on the pass and get players to play fast with their hands ready to shoot.

    This is a video that all coaches looking to get out and score in transition must have. It will help improve your players' ability to move the ball up the floor and score. Coach Calhoun does a great job demonstrating how to play fast and build your team's skills along the way.

    Offensive Sets

    You will see Coach Enfield demonstrate:

    • How to attack multiple areas of the floor and get high-percentage shots from the same offensive set.
    • A versatile motion and screening offense that can be used against man-to-man or match-up zone coverage.
    • Ways to mask offensive actions by running different plays out of the same set.
    • Key timing elements that make the difference between success and failure on a particular play.

    Nearly every type of offensive set is covered in this video, meaning you're sure to find a set and play variations that work for your team's particular talents. Coach Enfield shows many different ways in each set to get the ball to your best player, whether that player is a shooter or post player.

    with Shaka Smart,
    University of Texas Head Coach;
    2016 USA Basketball U18 National Team Head Coach;
    former Virginia Commonwealth University Head Coach,
    2012 CAA Tournament and 2015 A-10 Tournament Champions;
    2011 Final Four; 2010 CBI Champions;
    2011 Clarence Gaines National Coach of the Year;
    in each of his six seasons as head coach at VCU, Coach Smart led VCU to over 25 wins, including four straight 27-win seasons (2009-2013).

    If you're looking to build your players' individual skills in a team setting, then this on-court video by Shaka Smart will provide you with some great ideas. You will get drills and great insights from one of the college game's best young coaches.

    Coach Smart always brings tremendous energy and enthusiasm to all of his sessions, but more importantly, he teaches everyone how to pass on that enthusiasm to the players on the court. Complete commitment is required for all participating when Smart is in charge!

    Drills for Bigs

    Smart starts off with a few drills that focus on post players. Each drill addresses fundamental skills necessary to have success in the post, but also force the bigs to get after it with more energy than is usually required in post development workouts. Coach Smart also teaches the importance of not giving players too many moves. He would rather have them get great at a few than be acceptable at many.

    A few of the drills you'll see Smart demonstrate include:

    • Rodman Taps - Works the weak hand around the rim and is a great drill to focus on getting back up quickly.
    • Form Hooks - A simple skill drill with great instruction on footwork.
    • Shaq Series - A great series of post moves are included in this drill along with some strength and aggression added. The drill teaches the mentality of Shaq in the post!
    • Multiple Effort Drill - The highlight drill of this section. Great to get your posts playing at full effort.

    Drills for Guards

    Next, Smart touches on some of the drills he uses for perimeter players. You'll get these drills:

    • Pinball Screening - A high-energy drill that covers both offense and defense. This drill teaches players how to use screens to get open and also helps defenders learn to defend through screens.
    • LeBron Combos - This drill, used by LeBron James early in his career, features a series of moves with the ball followed by shots; Smart creates the moves and the player must execute them. This then becomes a competition between two players.
    • 3 Minute Shooting - A fantastic, fatigue shooting drill with three minutes of constant shooting with a specific goal. Players will learn to knock down shots even when they are tired!
    • 2 on 1 Drill - Teaches players how to battle difficult situations and stay engaged. This is a total effort drill!

    Another highlighted drill is the 'Ironman Drill.' This is another of Coach Smart's foundational drills. In the drill, the defender must take a charge, hustle to dive on the floor to get a loose ball and then scramble to save a ball going out of bounds. The individual performing the drill must be engaged and fully commit to the drill, however, the other players on the court are also expected to bring great energy to support the player working hard in the drill. This drill epitomizes the Shaka Smart coaching philosophy!

    Coach Smart always brings incredible teaching points to each instructional session, but more importantly, he shows you how he is always able to get his guys to work harder and play with great effort every time out. Get your athletes to push themselves and watch your team take an immediate step forward in their performance!

    Legendary St. Anthony's basketball coach Bob Hurley Sr. has amassed 28 state championships in his time on the sidelines. He has coached hundreds of players and has taken great lengths to study today's game to become one of the most knowledgeable coaches in the world. In this video, you'll get the opportunity to learn a smorgasbord of defensive drills and skills from a great coach and excellent teacher.

    Philosophy

    Coach Hurley has built an essential list of daily habits that he requires his players to use. By teaching and modeling these habits, his teams are able to build extraordinary consistency. These daily habits along with the expectation of making practice harder than the game set the tone for a successful season. You will see how Hurley sets the tone and gets his players to work on their weaknesses early in every drill to push them out of their comfort zone.

    Drills

    Beginning with a solid foundation, Hurley demonstrates how he starts every year teaching the basics of defense. Skills such as stance, footwork, and hustling after a loose ball have helped his teams achieve great success in high school basketball.

    Mastering the basics of rebounding, positioning, two hands on the ball, and attacking the glass are all elements a player needs to be a successful rebounder on both ends of the floor. In the Superman Rebounding Series, Hurley demonstrates five different drills you can use in your practices to build a superstar rebounder, no matter if the player is a post or a guard. Each drill makes athletes focus on using two hands, being strong with the basketball, and using a shot fake after getting an offensive rebound.

    In 6 Man Closeout, your defense must be able to contest a shot and be ready for the drive as a post player sprints out to set a ball screen. Through this drill, you'll be able to teach ball screen defense or a combination of different ball screen defenses that will help prepare your players for game day.

    Rounding out the video, Hurley demonstrates how to eliminate offensive celebrations and encourage your team to get back on the defensive end of floor.

    with Coach William Clay,
    Diamond in the Rough Skills Academy;
    10 years coaching high school, Division 1, and AAU,
    Published "The Seven S's of the Pick-and-Roll" in Winning Hoops Magazine (2015),
    WBCA Final Four On-Court Presentation of the Seven S's of the Pick-and-Roll (2016).

    For decades, coaches at every level have regarded the pick-and-roll as arguably the single most efficient offensive tool in their playbooks. In the Seven S's of the Pick-and-Roll, Coach Clay gives special attention to detail in explaining the ball-handler's role in the pick-and- roll. This video presents a template for building a ball-handler's intuition, reads, ball-handling, and scoring in the pick-and-roll in seven S's. They are:

    • Survey. Read the defense from far-to-near.
    • Start. Will I need to use my speed or length/size (or both) to engage my defender below the level of the screen?
    • Setup. How will I get to the screener's outside foot before my defender to successfully use it?
    • Seal. No space can be allowed or compromised to let my defender bridge between my attack and the screen. Close the gap by "taking up space" and attacking the screen shoulder-to-hip.
    • Separate. The greater the distance covered after sealing off the screen, the greater the chance a player will find an open shot or create a mismatch.
    • Sag/soft/switch. How is the screener's defender playing the pick-and-roll?
    • Score. The purpose of the pick-and-roll is to create scoring opportunities. Maximize its potential by staying aggressive at all times.

    Coach Clay presents three ball-handling series and one finishing series that are paramount to not only being effective in pick-and roll situations, but also that successful high-level pick-and-roll ball-handlers subconsciously perform routinely in games.

    Ball-handling

    The in-out ball-handling series builds the proper mechanics and muscle memory of executing the in-out dribble with a unique two-ball slam drill and one-ball stationary shift drill to attack a soft or sagging screene's defender, while also utilizing Coach Clay's "Equation of Separation: East-West jabs+North-South Stride" to yield max separation from the defender.

    The second series, which is the escape-dribble series, compliments the scenario of "stringing" a hedging defender or escaping a trap situation, while maintaining vision of the entire floor to create scoring opportunities for teammates.

    Lastly, in the "Snake-back series" Clay teaches the ball-handler to play with rhythm and pace while learning to take up the space when the screener's defender is again soft or sagging, which ultimately creates scoring opportunities for the ball-handler and or screener in the mid-range and at the basket.

    Finishing

    In the finishing series, X-out layups, Clay emphasizes changing speed and direction while attacking downhill utilizing "Floater", "Euro", and "Spin" finishes, all of which are common, yet effective complementary finishes for both the ball-handler and screener in pick-and-rollsituations when performed with proper footwork and balance.

    Two-Man Game

    The last segment combines all of the aforementioned concepts in "The 2-man game" in which the ball-handler and screener play off of each other utilizing Dribble-handoffs and re-screens to demonstrate how to properly read-and-react in pick-and-roll situations.utilizationof the Seven S's.

    The Seven S's will not only add to your players individual skill set, but will also add to their holistic understanding of pick-and-roll, making them better team players as well.

    System

    Using 10s, 20s, 30s, and 40s, Coach Guelsdorf has created a system that is easy to understand and easy to follow. From a man-to-man press to zone presses such as the 2-2-1, 1-2-2 and the Diamond 1-2-1-1, your team will have multiple pressing and attacking options to use against your opponents. Once you have the numbering system in place, Guelsdorf shows how to break the court into thirds for your players to see where they are supposed to force the offense and create the best trapping angles.

    Coaching Points

    Pressing teams must be able to emphasize a few important concepts and adjust on the fly. Guelsdorf explains that by not making the same mistake three times in the row, your team will quickly learn how to stop your opponent's best scoring opportunities. Understanding that teams will score against you and you will give up some layups is an important element to understand. Your press will be broken, but your system continuously fatigues your opponent, which will create dividends multiple times over the course of a game.

    On the technical side of things, the "closest man" rule within your trapping system will make using any of your presses simple. Using active hands, feet and eyes, your team will be able to sprint from one side of the floor to the other, making it seem as though there are no openings or flows in your press. If you do get beat, the ability to trail and tip is a key element to recovering in your press defense.

    Breakdown Drills

    After demonstrating the alignment of all your numbered presses, Coach Guelsdorf outlines simple and effective drills you can use in practice to make your players sharp and prepared for any situation.

    Drills include:

  • Mad Dog Drill - Use to quickly discover your best out-of-bounds defender.
  • Punch Drill - Use to help players learn how to tip the ball from behind to the next line of defense and switch into offensive mode right away to score.
  • Turn Drill - Teaches athletes to apply massive pressure on the ball and force sideline to get traps in your press.
  • 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 Trap - Learn how to rotate and take advantage of the closest defender rule when it comes to trapping.
  • Running Groups - Teaches your entire team how to flow seamlessly from one press to the next on the coach's call.
  • Using many presses can be confusing for your players if your numbering system is poorly organized. If your team likes to get up and down the floor, then consider using Coach Guelsdorf's numbering system to attack with various pressing styles and cut down on mental errors.

    Long-time head coach Kurt Guelsdorf has always worked to put his players in the best possible situation to be successful. Over the years, he has learned and studied some of the best coaches in today's game, including innovator/founder of the dribble drive motion offense, Vance Walberg.

    In this video, Coach Guelsdorf demonstrates numerous sets and entries that are simple and easy to implement with your team within the dribble drive offense.

    Coaching Points

    Starting with basic alignments, Guelsdorf sets up the dribble drive motion offense, making sure you understand where to look for open driving gaps and lanes. Within the offense, he shows how to properly space out your players in order to maximize driving angles. As your team swings the ball from side to side, you will create more open gap opportunities and be able to use the backdoor option as your players attack the middle of the floor.

    False Motion and Isolation

    In seven different sets and entries, Guelsdorf demonstrates and explains the importance of false action as a way to set up the defense and create scoring opportunities for your best players. In Rocket, he uses a series of loop cuts as the ball is swung around the perimeter to create an open driving gap from the wing to set up a pitch back to your shooting guard. This opens a great scoring opportunity for a shot or easy drive to the rim.

    In his isolation sets, Guelsdorf overloads one side of the floor to open up space for your best player to operate. You can even utilize your post players in an isolation play using various cuts, giving your best post player room in the paint.

    3-Point Specials

    Next, you'll get various 3-point special plays that will provide your best shooter an open look from anywhere using ball screen-flare screen action off a drive. These are great sets for you to use at the end of the quarter, after a timeout, or if you need a last-second buzzer beater!

    Box Sets and BLOBS

    Rounding out this advanced look at the dribble drive motion offense, Guelsdorf includes box sets and baseline out of bounds sets that flow right into your dribble drive motion offense. Using some of the same concepts as you overload one side of the floor, you can use mismatches to your advantage and open driving gaps for your best players.

    Coach Guelsdorf gives you a detailed look at how you can improve your dribble drive motion offense using simple sets and entries that flow right into dribble drive action. Whether you're looking for another set to create a scoring opportunity or more actions to get the ball moving in your offense, you'll get it all, and more, in this video!

    former LSU Assistant Coach (Men's & Women's);
    Back-to-back Final Four appearances (including as acting head coach at LSU);
    while an LSU men's assistant, Starkey worked closely with future NBA first round picks/post players Shaquille O'Neal (2x NBA Finals MVP) and Stanley Roberts;
    has been a part of 700+ career wins; over 34 years of college coaching experience; 22 NCAA Tournaments

    One of the top coaches in college basketball delivers a detailed breakdown of how to develop the low post game with your players. Bob Starkey shares the knowledge he has accrued over decades of coaching on how to teach numerous facets of post play such as maintaining seals, moves to get open, improving ball handling, and so much more. Additionally, you will see 12 practice drills used by Texas A&M to establish the fundamentals needed for excellence in the paint.

    Post Play Fundamentals

    Coach Starkey teaches you the fundamentals of how to 'own the paint' by catching the ball inside the post box. Learn how to call for the ball in an athletic stance and see how to make and maintain a seal against four different ways that the defense can try to deny you. Each of these options will create space for your players to score more easily.

    Next, learn how to help your players prioritize securing the ball before they score to limit turnovers. Coach Starkey explains how to see the floor to effectively pass out of double teams with the "catch, chin, check" technique. Five different movements are shared for post players to get open in the paint. These moves will expand your players' ability to find opportunities in games to call for the ball with an advantage. Three different practice drills teach your players to seal in the paint and cleanly catch the ball. The "2-on-1 Posting" drill is a great way to challenge even the most talented player by forcing them to find advantages to get open against double teams in the paint.

    Ball Handling for Bigs

    Improving the ball handling of your post players will enhance their confidence to make scoring moves while also eliminating turnovers. Coach Starkey leads his players through a series of six drills that will develop their dribbling, catching, and passing. Two-Ball Handling drills will maximize the efficiency of your practice by improving both hands at once. The "One Handers" drill is a perfect way for your posts to develop soft hands as they call for the ball while posting up.

    Moves to Score

    Coach Starkey believes that you can maximize your posts' scoring efficiency by focusing your efforts on a minimum amount of scoring moves. He shares the teaching points he uses for the three primary scoring moves that he teaches players. You will also learn when a post needs to dribble to score versus when it is wasted effort. Three different drills will help to develop touch around the rim. Starkey demonstrates the toughest version of the Mikan drill you will ever see while also explaining how you can make it competitive with daily charting and demanding goals.

    This is video so is packed with information that you will replay it numerous times before you feel like you have successfully absorbed most of Coach Starkey's teaching points. Bring a pen and a stack of paper for notes!

    "I thought that Coach Starkey was very informative with lots of detailed breakdown to each part of his presentation. There were many teaching points included and drills to support each phase of low post play. I really liked that he had a lot of depth while covering many aspects to post play. Very solid video and probably one of the best post play videos released by Championship Productions." - Customer Review

    South Dakota State University Head Coach;
    2018 Summit League Coach of the Year;
    2018 Summit League Regular Season Champions;
    former Assistant Coach at Iowa State University and the University of Washington

    Up-and-coming head coach T.J. Otzelberger has implemented a fast-paced style of play at South Dakota State. Through his coaching philosophy, his players have learned to play at an up-tempo pace on both offense and defense.

    In this video, you'll get an inside look at how Coach Otz teaches transition play into an attacking half court offense. Additionally, you'll learn how to craft a competitive practice session that gets players focused on one possession at a time.

    Transition

    A staple of Coach Otzelberger's offense is transition and getting the ball into the scoring area as quickly as possible to put pressure on the defense. He details how to push the ball up and down the floor and use your fast break to attack gaps in the defense. Using various transition drills, Otzelberger outlines how he creates a culture of playing fast with the goal of scoring at the rim as quickly as possible.

    Skill Development

    During the skill development portion of this video, you'll see two opportunities where players are broken out into two different groups. Each session is centered around creating driving angles in a gap or a double gap setting. Posts learn to rotate as the drive comes toward the basket while guards learn to attack and recognize gaps as the ball is moved around the court. In the second session, guards and posts learn to take pride in their defense.

    Half Court Play

    Once in the half court, Otzelberger demonstrates various actions he likes to use to open the floor up for driving angles or create downhill action as fast as possible. In the 6 Possession game, players get up and down the floor in transition and utilize dribble hand-offs, step up screens, and flip actions to get the offense going.

    This open practice video gives you a detailed look at a fast-paced style of play. Coach Otzelberger does an excellent job of breaking down the actions that will lead to open gaps and driving angles for your players to attack.

    T.J. Otzelberger, a rising star in college basketball coaching, shares an inside look into how he teaches his defensive system. Everything about Otzelberger's defense is designed to force opponents into tough shots and then rebound the basketball to quickly transition into offense and score easy buckets. Once you're done watching this video, you will understand why his teams are consistently ranked in the top 10 in the country for defensive rebounding.

    Stance, Slides, and Closeouts

    Defense begins with the basics: stance, slide, and closing out. Coach Otzelberger demonstrates how his team uses low, wide, and active stances. Keeping active hands allows players to use their hands as weapons to deflect passes, but avoid fouling. High, early hands on a closeout ensures your players attack the shooter as they prepare to load for a shot. This defensive style will help your team disrupt any offensive action.

    Ball Screen Defense

    In today's game, having lock-down ball screen defense is a must. Your team must be prepared with multiple ways to defend a ball screen while also having a go-to defense that can disrupt even the best ball handlers. In his side ball screen defense segment, Otzelberger teaches his players to have a wide, open stance and wall up/chest up the driver as they come off the ball screen.

    Alley Drill

    Continuing to build 1-on-1 defense, the Alley Drill pushes players to their limits. In this competitive drill, each team sends their athletes through the "alley." Defensive players work to keep their opponent in front of them in the lane line alley. They have to use good angles to cut off offensive players and force them to turn.

    Coach Otzleberger demonstrates how to build a defensive philosophy from the ground up to ensure your team uses constant ball pressure and active hands. This is a great video for any coach looking to pick up a few new defensive drills or add to their own defensive philosophy.

    third highest winning percentage of active Division II coaches,
    12th all-time in college basketball history;
    NAIA National Championship (2005), NAIA National Championship Runner-up (2010)

    Analytics are becoming a popular way of evaluating team strengths and deficiencies, as well as a way to identify the best shots in basketball. This has resulted in teams across the country at every level depending more on the 3-point shot. The fact is, the best teams in basketball are efficient 3-point shooters, so to compete and become the best in your league it's imperative that your team shoots it well from beyond the arc.

    Jeff Young's teams have historically been great at 3-point shooting partly due to the fact that shooting is emphasized every day in practice. In this presentation, Young opens his drill book to show you multiple individual and team shooting drills. He also shares his philosophy on changing a player's shot and how to perfect their shooting mechanics while getting high reps in practice.

    Teaching Points

    Coach Young begins by breaking down his philosophy and the rationale behind it for shooting the basketball. His insights will challenge any preconceived notions on shooting mechanics you might have and get you to start analyzing your beliefs about shooting. His discussion ranges from the feet to the follow-through and everything in between, including confidence and the mental aspect of shooting.

    Improving 3-Point Shooting

    Coach Young discusses the three points of emphasis that his program reinforces to develop great 3-point shooters: recruit great shooters, shot selection, and repetition. He breaks down each part and discusses other things such as shooting off of receiving a bad pass vs. shooting off of a good pass and how to control shot selection. In a typical Coach Young practice, the team spends a minimum of 30 minutes each day on shooting, working mostly on catch-and-shoot situations.

    Shooting Drills

    Young breaks down shooting into individual and team drills. Each drill has an element of time and score for a player to reach or to compete against and ends with a consequence to add a level of competitiveness. You'll get five individual shooting drills and four team shooting drills.

  • Individual Drills:
    • Five Minute Threes
    • Two Minute Three Minute and Four Minute
    • Three Minute Shooting
    • How many makes before two misses
    • Twenty Minute Shoot

    Team Drills:

    • Three Minute Team Shooting
    • Cavs Transition
    • Memphis Shooting
    • Full Court Shooting

    As today's game continues to trend more toward maximizing 3-point shot attempts, you and your players must adapt. Using the drills provided in this video by Coach Young, your players can learn to become great shooters and lead your team to new heights!

    only coach to be named USA Basketball's Developmental Coach of the Year twice;
    past President of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association

    How coaches teach is just as important as what they teach athletes. In this video, Doug Bruno gives you the foundation around which you can build your own coaching philosophy.

    Bruno has been regarded as one of the best basketball minds in today's game. His ability to teach at a deliberate pace where players can focus on detail has resulted in top-rated offensive teams year in and year out. From learning to build a better player to improving your teaching method, you will become a better basketball coach and teacher by watching Coach Bruno explain his philosophy.

    10 Ingredients of a Building a Better Player

    Bruno spends time explaining how you can develop your players through daily skill development. He not only stresses becoming a player skill-wise, but also mentally and emotionally. The ingredients that make a dynamic and complete basketball player, according to Coach Bruno, include:

    • A love to compete.
    • Ball handling skills and performance in pressure situations.
    • Attention to footwork.
    • Focus on all aspects of offensive moves: with/without the ball, on the bounce, in triple threat and in the post.
    • Great eyes and vision.
    • Listening ability and being coachable in order to develop IQ.

    Teaching Method

    A player is only as good as their teacher. Learning to become a great teacher and developing a method where players will flourish is just as important as having the right mindset.

    Players need to know the teaching mode and attitude of practice every day. Understanding what kind of day and teaching they will receive that day creates the perfect setting for learning and developing skill.

    Bruno explains how starting slow and building through demonstration, imitation, and repetition will create the perfect learning environment for players to develop their optimal skills.

    Offense and Drills

    Coach Bruno uses one of his favorite offensive drills to demonstrate how his philosophy works. Starting with simple triple threat situation, he shows how to use a shot fake and attack an open gap. He builds onto this by adding crossover footwork and executing a change of direction move.

    While developing a guard in the open court, Bruno turns his attention to the other part of offense: players without the ball. He teaches how to get open using a V-cut and use a backdoor cut for an open layup. As he lays his foundation, he also progressively builds the 1-4 offensive system with scoring options off of a hand off, fake hand off, square up and attack, and split/slip option.

    Coach Bruno's offensive philosophy, through detailed player individual development, is one that every coach, at any level, will appreciate and find applicable to use with their team in the seasons ahead!

    tied the school record for the most wins ever by an Xavier rookie head coach (26).

    In this on-court presentation, University of Louisville head coach Chris Mack passes on some great insights and plays that you can use to attack zone defenses. He shares his five principles to concentrate on when facing a zone and gives you a couple of effective continuity sets. Additionally, you'll get inbound plays designed to be used against zone defenses.

    Five Zone Offense Principles

    Coach Mack begins with some important thoughts on his five principles to beating zone defenses. It all begins with having an attacking mentality, which is echoed throughout the rest of the video in everything he shares. Mack then breaks down the other four principles, which include: ways to get the ball to the logo, running set plays, picking on the gray areas, and getting second shots. Each of these topics are covered on the court as the video progresses.

    Next, Coach Mack gets into some of his essential offensive concepts. He talks about a few of the goals he has with his own offense, including getting the ball to the logo or free throw line area. You'll see him demonstrate why having your baseline athlete stay below the defense can get the zone to flatten out, as well as ways to get players open on the perimeter as the ball goes into the logo area. One quick option that he passes on is called "Carolina Wheel," which is a simple action that drags the defender away from the corner and creates a wide open 3-pointer.

    Sets Versus the Zone

    Coach Mack gives you some great set plays to use against a zone. All of the plays he shows are simple and offer up easy scoring opportunities at the rim. He explains that getting a set play for a 3-pointer isn't his goal. Rather, he wants his team to work hard at getting high-percentage shots from close range.

    Next, Mack progresses further into his five principles and talks about the "gray areas." These important areas are key to getting the defense off-balance and you can learn to exploit them by using "step outs" and "sneak cuts" to create opportunities. Mack then shows how to use ball screen action to move the defense to places its not designed to go.

    Rebounding and Inbound Plays

    Rebounding is an effort area of the game. Coach Mack shares strategies that his staff uses to hold players accountable for this important concept. By tracking his players' rebounding in games and during practice, he is able to show them who is and who isn't doing their job on the boards.

    Finally, Mack passes on inbound plays to score from a dead ball situation. Free baskets can be gained when running these plays.

    Take advice from one of the top coaches in the game today on what it takes from your players individually and as a team, and the kind of feedback and observational coaching/feedback needed from your staff, to put together an offensive attack to beat a zone defense!

    with Vance Walberg,
    Clovis West (CA) High School Head Coach;
    former Sacramento Kings (NBA) Assistant Coach;
    Creator of the Innovative Dribble Drive Attack Offense,
    former Fresno City College Head Coach - 2005 California JC Undefeated State Champions

    "In the dribble drive, you're teaching your players how to play basketball, not to run plays."

    That's the philosophy of Vance Walberg, the creator of the dribble drive offense, and is exactly why his teams have been known to consistently get better as the season goes on. In this video, Coach Walberg covers many of the concepts that have turned the dribble drive into a popular offensive system, and he shares countless coaching nuggets that are invaluable to coaches who already run the dribble drive or are thinking about implementing it.

    Offensive Tactics

    Coach Walberg begins by offering the numbering system that he uses with his team at Clovis West. You'll see where he wants his players to get to on the floor to optimize spacing, as well as why he calls his traditional "5-man" a 4-man instead, and vice versa. Additionally, Walberg shares many of the details that coaches often overlook when teaching the dribble drive.

    Next, you'll learn the three things that will never change about the dribble drive offense according to Coach Walberg, no matter how much it evolves over time:

    • Attack Mentality - Every time a player touches the ball, they need to think "score"
    • Open the Gaps - After passing the ball, players need to cut to open up space to score
    • Spacing Off Penetration - Once the ball has been taken inside, athletes need to make sure they space the floor to provide additional scoring opportunities

    Dribble Drive Actions

    Throughout the video, Walberg runs through a number of early-offense actions for the dribble drive. He details how to attack the defense depending on how the opposing team likes to guard off-ball players, including when they face-guard, deny high side, or play flat along the baseline. The idea of reading the defense and attacking where it's weak becomes central when Coach Walberg shows how to get an easy bucket when a post defender steps up to help on drive, allowing the attacking player to lob to the defender's man or convert on a contested layup. The layup can be tough to make, but often results in a trip to the free throw line or an easy cleanup bucket for the vacated post player.

    Daily Drills

    In order to convert more quick buckets inside, Walberg shares a drill that requires post players to finish three layups in quick succession. The more comfortable athletes become with making close baskets quickly, the more likely they'll make them during a game. He also gives you a 5-man drill designed for the dribble drive that mimics an action often utilized in the offense.

    To close, Walberg demonstrates his "Drop Layups" drill as well as a few of his favorite shooting drills. Drop Layups adds purpose to finishing practice by tasking players to focus on the little things that are important for the dribble drive, including passing, timing, attacking the correct spots on the floor and relocating. Finally, you'll get the Olympic Shooting, 5-Spots and Star drills, which are great shooting drills for the beginning of practice.

    There's no one better to explain the origins and insights of the unstoppable dribble drive than Coach Walberg. This video serves as a great example why the offense has proven effective at multiple levels and is a fantastic resource for you to reference as you build your own dribble drive system.

    with Porter Moser,
    Loyola University Chicago Head Coach;
    2018 NCAA Final Four; 2018 Missouri Valley Conference & Tournament Champions;
    2018 Missouri Valley Conference Coach of the Year; 2015 CBI (College Basketball Invitational) Champions

    You get the chance to see how Porter Moser and his team are working to make a repeat visit to the Final Four in this exclusive look inside one of the Ramblers' off-season practices following their impressive tournament showing.

    Coach Moser opens the session by sharing the three rules his team has in the locker room:

    • Protect the Team
    • No Excuses, No Complaining, No Entitlement/li>
    • Be Early/li>

    The "No Entitlement" part of those rules has been the Ramblers' focus after garnering so much attention from the media. Moser has placed a big emphasis on maintaining his team's rich culture throughout the off-season and he shares many of his leadership techniques throughout this video.

    Warm-Up, Perfection and Shooting Drills

    To kick off the practice, Moser instructs his team to complete the 130 Passes one-minute drill that requires the ball to never hit the ground. The drill is an easy way to make sure that your players are present mentally and ready to compete at practice. Next, the team rolls right into Moser's "Perfection Drills." These drills call for perfection, according to Moser, because they involve layups and no defense.

    Coach Moser showcases two of his favorite shooting drills that have helped the Ramblers convert more shots, especially from 3-point range. "One More Shooting" and "Full-Court 3-Point Shooting" are competitive drills that will push your players to focus and nail more shots.

    Skill Work

    Loyola-Chicago's culture on the court is predicated on a "pace and space" philosophy. You'll see that come through as you observe some of the offensive skill work specific to guards and posts that Moser uses with his team. Everything must be at high speed, and no detail is spared as athletes complete every rep. This section is valuable because you'll see the Ramblers split into both halves of the court depending on position and operate simultaneously.

    Once players have been through the offensive circuit, it's time to move to defense. Staying in their position groups, you'll see them work on defensive fundamentals like moving feet and maintaining active hands. These skills, and many more, are improved through a variety of drills.

    Finally, guards and posts come together to complete combined skill work. Coach Moser especially wants his team to work on ball screens on both sides of the ball.

    Competitive Drills and Games

    Much of the second half of this video is spent on team drills that put players in game-like situations so Coach Moser can provide critiques. These drills will give you plenty of feedback about what each of your athletes needs to do to get better. Moser's version of the Shell drill is especially useful as it's run in the full court as opposed to the half court. This forces players to remain active and exposes lazy tendencies.

    To close the practice, Moser gives you two games that pit your players against each other. 7, 8, 9 Free Throws puts pressure on your athletes to knock down shots at the line in order to come away with a win, making it a great drill for virtually any practice.

    Coach Moser has quickly built a dominant team at Loyola-Chicago, but he's done it the old-fashioned way - through a culture of hard work and attention to detail. This video shows exactly the kind of practices that you'll want to emulate to take your own program to new heights in the seasons ahead!

    former Murray State University Head Coach; 2012 Joe B. Hall National Coach of the Year (top 1st-year D1 coach);
    2014 CIT Champions; 2x OVC Coach of the Year

    In this video, Iowa State University head coach Steve Prohm gives his comprehensive approach to beating the most popular zone in today's game: the 2-3. Prohm details how his teams have defeated some of the best zone defenses in the country with two different zone offenses and a handful of set plays. If your team struggles to score versus zone defenses, this video can help improve its scoring ability and confidence against any zone.

    Zone Offense

    Coach Prohm begins with early offense and explains why transition is the best way to beat the zone. While that may seem like a fundamental concept, he elaborates on transition positioning and teaches early offense to get the ball in the basket quickly before the zone has a chance to get set. Prohm also teaches three offensive concepts that are great for beating the zone, including his "flare flash" and "roll cross" actions.

    Since you can't always beat a zone in transition, Prohm offers two offenses - a motion offense and a ball screen offense - to destroy the zone. You'll see perimeter and post concepts and discover how Prohm blends them together to create a potent attack. Additionally, he demonstrates a few basic concepts for beating a box-and-1.

    Set Plays

    Next, Coach Prohm reaches into his personal playbook and gives you seven set plays for half-court offense and four baseline out of bounds plays to beat the zone. He takes you through multiple options for each set and has the practice team demonstrate each at full speed.

    This video proves why Prohm's teams at Iowa State are always competitive in one of the toughest conferences in the country. His zone concepts are quick, simple, and continuous to make them a nightmare to guard defensively. This is a great video for all age groups as the overall concepts can apply to lower levels while the offense and sets are effective at high levels of play.

    3x Big Ten Coach of the Year; 2x Sweet Sixteen appearances;
    2009 US U19 National Team (Assistant Coach), Gold Medalist at the FIBA U19 World Championship

    Developing a balanced offensive attack that is designed to score consistently is a challenge that plagues every coach. Purdue head coach Matt Painter uses the on-court demonstration in this video to discuss his approach to offensive basketball, how he utilizes the post-up in his motion offense attack, and set actions, that can get easy baskets when necessary.

    Offensive Approach

    Coach Painter's success in back-to-back seasons is in large part due to players with high assist-to-turnover ratios, multiple players with 100 made 3-pointers in a single season, and record-setting offense for the Big Ten Conference. The mindset that is center to all of that is being "patiently aggressive." Coach Painter uses this term with his players to describe how he wants to push the tempo, but not so much that they are impatient. Looking for easy shots in transition and open shot opportunities defines this approach.

    Painter discusses how he attacks with "numbers and angles" and by getting paint touches. By attacking in transition, Purdue looks to get easy baskets against an outnumbered defense. Drives, deep post-ups, offensive rebounds, and cuts to the rim are used to get paint touches. Both approaches allow for open looks from the 3-point line, which leads to a higher percentage of made threes.

    Finally, Coach Painter explains why coaches need to chart how their team makes 3-point shots. He advices that you go back and look at where your 3-point shots come from and what kinds of actions are leading to them. Once this data is compiled, you can start to build drills that incorporate the 3-point shot off of the relevant actions and spots you've charted.

    Posting Rules

    As part of Purdue's inside-out motion offense attack, Painter demonstrates his rules for when the ball is posted. From a 4-out/1-in alignment, the use of getting the low post ball-side as a means of flattening the defense is explained. Also discussed his how the offense dives non-shooters going to the basket.

    On the pass to the low post, a dive takes place. If the posted big gets the ball and is guarded 1-on-1, they are advised to shoot. Meanwhile, the perimeter player making the pass spots up in the corner while the dive man presents himself for a possible pass out of a double team.

    Another option on a post entry is the use of a second diver. Typically, this is a guard who is not a very good shooter. The second diver will go through and exit opposite the posted big with the ball. This action sets up the possibility of an isolation for a post player capable of scoring on the low block.

    Set Plays

    Known for running inventive sets that can get open looks in the low post and 3-point shots, Coach Painter shows some of his best post-up plays and sets that can get open 3-point looks. He uses his team's motion offense as the basis for these plays. One series demonstrated to get the ball into the post is the Pro Cut series. With multiple ways to get the ball to perimeter players, the ball can be posted to a big who is being guarded 1-on-1 in the low post.

    Additionally, Painter discusses how he utilizes his coaching staff. Using his three assistant coaches, he assigns one to the offense, one to the defense, and one to personnel. Whenever Coach Painter needs information, the assigned assistant coach gives him the information that he needs.

    With the 3-point shot becoming more and more valuable in today's game, it's essential to provide your team with opportunities to get quality looks from downtown. This video will allow you to learn concepts from one of the best in the college game at blending a strong post presence with quality perimeter play.

    with Jim Myers,
    former Barneveld High School (WI) Head Coach;
    2017 WIAA Division 5 Boys State Champions; 6x WIAA Girls State Champion;
    all-time winningest girls' basketball coach in Wisconsin

    Jim Myers led his teams to state championships on seven occasions using his match-up zone defense that he used to build his programs from scratch. With this informative on-court presentation, Coach Myers gives you an inside look at how he was able to help win Barneveld High School multiple girls' state championships and the first boys' basketball state championship in school history.

    Breakdown Drills

    Coach Myers begins by presenting the way that he builds his match-up zone defense: by utilizing the "Hash Drill." This drill teaches transition defense by starting out with a 3-on-2 half-court situation. As soon as the defense gets the ball, the two players that were standing out of bounds join the drill to create a 4-on-3 situation going the other way.

    Also presented is a 4-on-3 box drill to teach rotation in the zone. While the offensive players must always be touching the lane line, the defensive players move to point the ball, but the same player may not point the ball after the ball has been passed.

    Rules for Match-Up Zone Defense

    In the interest of keeping the defense simple enough for the players to execute, Coach Myers presents three important rules that must be followed at all times:

    • Players must be in a stance.
    • Players must have high, active hands.
    • Players must talk.

    When guarding an offense, the defense matches the front of the offense and the on-ball defender must be able to contain for at least two dribbles. The defense is also designed to prevent ball reversal with gap help that must show early.

    Finally, man-to-man defense principles are added with emphasis on the following rules that are applied to the match-up zone defense:

    • Switch all screens.
    • Follow all cutters.
    • Help on the post.

    Building the Match-Up Zone

    Out of a 1-1-3 alignment, Coach Myers covers the details for each individual player in his match-up zone defense. Responsibilities are given to ensure the success of the defense using five defensive players against offensive players in eight possible spots.

    The two guards at the top of the match-up zone defense are charged with applying pressure to the basketball and to work together as a unit. While the point guard is tasked with forcing the ball out of the middle of the floor and forcing to a side, the second guard must be ready to stop any dribble penetration if the point guard gets beat off of the bounce and covers the high post area. The option for a possible run-and-jump involving the two guards is also discussed.

    With the forwards (#'s 3 and 4), the responsibilities include guarding the wing pass and taking away any possible baseline drive. Backside help is then charged to the forward opposite the ball. The center (#5) must then be able to front the low post and cover any pass to the corner.

    Additionally, Coach Myers covers three adjustments that can be made to the match-up zone defense to deal with different situations that could arise in the course of a game:

    • "Shadow" - Focuses on covering a dangerous perimeter shooter.
    • "Glove" - An adjustment similar to a box-and-one defense.
    • Any color being called to double team the corner on a pass from the wing.

    The match-up zone defense can be a difficult 'nut to crack' when run well. Coach Myers' version is sure to help your team improve its defensive efficiency!

    has led Gonzaga to 17 Regular Season and 15 Tournament titles total

    An often-overlooked key in today's pace and space offenses is the ability to work inside out, which starts with getting the ball into the post. In this video, you'll learn the "whys" and "hows" of this critical skill from one of the country's most successful coaches, Mark Few.

    Coach Few shows you how to utilize the post in transition as an offensive weapon regardless of the size of the post player. Building from the ground up, this video will help you and your players to see post opportunities as they develop in transition and how to put both post players and point guards in the most advantageous areas to score.

    Entry Methods

    After initial two-player reads, Few illustrates different sets and techniques to get the ball into the post against a variety of defenses. This information will help you improve your offense for both post and perimeter players.

    You'll learn:

    • How to utilize the offense off the post to get a high percentage shot for any player on the floor.
    • How post play can alter an opponent's game strategy beyond just post defense.
    • The most effective ways to punish a defense that pressures or double-teams the post.

    No post play video would be complete without multiple sets and entry strategies to get the ball into the high percentage scoring area close to the basket. Few shows how different sets and varied entries can frustrate any defense.

    Movement after a Post Entry

    Playing inside-out is a staple of Coach Few's offensive philosophy, and he shows the kinds of offense that can be created after the ball is thrown inside. He details several options available depending on how the defense reacts to the ball being thrown into the post. One common reaction is to double-team the post once the ball goes inside. Coach Few shows plays to counter a double team from the opposite post player or the perimeter.

    In a concluding Q & A session, Few demonstrates how to teach post skills to any player on your team, how to maximize post play against a zone, and shares some of the intangible qualities that the Gonzaga coaching staff looks for in a player.

    Nate Oats has quickly progressed through the coaching ranks, going from coaching a high school state championship team to becoming the head coach at the University of Buffalo in a span of just three years. Along the way, one of his staples has been scoring early and often in transition. In this video, Coach Oats details many of the transition drills and strategies that he uses to get his athletes to compete with an attacking mindset, make better decisions on the court, and play fast.

    Transition Philosophy

    Beginning with his transition philosophy, Oats covers his five non-negotiables for transition offense and defense:

    • Ball Pressure
    • Sprint Back
    • Stay in a Good Stance
    • Communicate
    • Rebounding

    Paying mind to all of these will lead to stops on the defensive end and allow your team to push the ball in transition and play at a faster pace.

    Transition Drills

    Starting with his Texas Series, Coach Oats demonstrates how his team build its break, beginning with a non-traditional 1-on-2 drill. Once players get to one end of the floor, they have seven seconds to get back as the offense pushes back 2-on-1. From there, Oats demonstrates how to build into 2-on-2, 3-on-3, and 4-on-4 play.

    In the Blood Series, players compete 2-on-2 and work on reading the defense. Guards look to read the help defense while post players read and react to how the defense pushes the ball handlers. From 2-on-2, you can build into 3-on-3 and 4-on-4 going back and forth.

    The Hubie Break drill works on building the rebounding component of transition offense and defense. Players work on getting their butt to the sideline and peeking up the floor. As the ball is pushed, athletes hunt for their shot, doing their best to get to the rim and create layup opportunities.

    Coach Oats gives you a variety of transition drills that you can use to build both your offense and defense, which helps optimize practice time. This video will give you the tools you need to help your players understand how the game should be played in the open floor, which will in turn create more scoring opportunities for your offense.

    C-USA Coach of the Decade & 3x Coach of the Year (1998- 2000);
    has led his teams to 9 Sweet Sixteen appearances, 4 Elite Eight appearances, and 2 Final Four appearances

    Long-time West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins has created an offense that is very hard to guard using one of the latest trends in today's game: a positionless, open post attack. His teams use a ton of cutting, filling, and ball reversals to pick apart defenses through constant ball movement.

    In this video, you'll get the opportunity to see how Coach Huggins adds various actions to his motion offense to turn his team into a high-powered scoring machine.

    Motion Offense Fundamentals

    Before adding any actions, first you must come to understand the 5-out motion offense and be able to teach your players how to properly space, cut, and fill within it. Huggins demonstrates how to teach athletes proper spacing along with how to utilize the floor to creating ideal scoring opportunities.

    Actions to Score

    Next, Huggins installs some of his favorite motion offense strategies. You'll see how players can use a traditional pass and cut action into a screen away to put the offense into position to curl to the basket or slip the screen if overplayed. With a flex cut, Coach Huggins uses a ball reversal and screen away to create backside action as the ball is reversed. Before filling out, players look to step off the lane line and set the flex screen, creating an open layup concept.

    If you're looking for a little continuity, then adding T-Game or Triangle to your 5-out offense is exactly what you need. Huggins demonstrates how you can use a flex cut to get into a triangle on the opposite side of the floor. Through this set up, you can use cross screens and down screens to create scoring opportunities.

    If ball reversal action isn't open, then use a dribble hand-off to drive to the rim or get the ball reversed so your team can continue with its offense. Huggins even shows you how to install a flare screen to use off of the dribble hand-off option if the defense continues to deny the ball reversal.

    Ball Reversals and Post Feeds

    To make the offense complete, Coach Huggins demonstrates how to incorporate your post players within the 5-out motion offense as they cut and hold in the paint before filling to the perimeter. You can also use a guard to post up. By using these scoring actions, you will be able to look to reverse the ball and get a post feed at any point in time.

    Using today's hottest offense, the 5-out motion, you can create an attack that is efficient and able to score off of multiple actions. Allow Coach Huggins to help you make your offense unguardable and unscoutable when going against any defense!

    Regarded as one of the nation's top assistant coaches for decades, Brian Dutcher, now the head coach of San Diego State University, unveils years of experience on the defensive side of the ball in this video. Coach Dutcher displays the drills and techniques that have helped him produce great defensive teams at both the University of Michigan and at San Diego State.

    Coach Dutcher shows how to build your defense from closeouts, to weak-side positioning, post defense, double teaming, ball screen defense and more. You'll have everything you need to create a dominant defensive system!

    Closeouts and Weak-Side Positioning

    One of the most important aspects of a great defense is the closeout. Coach Dutcher shows three drills to teach technique and weak-side positioning through closeout drills that build from 1-on-1 to 2-on-2. The "Top and Bottom I" drill works on seeing the ball from the weak-side, helping on dribble penetration, and recovering with a good fundamental closeout in a 2-on-2 set up.

    Post Defense

    The cornerstone of any defense is post defense. Dutcher shows how his teams defend the post with multiple drills. From their base defensive look, Dutcher demonstrates a drill that works on all phases of half-court post defense.

    If you ever consider doubling the post, this segment will be extremely valuable as Coach Dutcher thoroughly explains how his teams double the post and rotate out of traps. Whether you are doubling big-to-big or guard-to-big, you will have your team well prepared for all scenarios.

    Meeting of Three and 4-on-4 Stunting

    The "Meeting of Three" drill is a perfect exercise to get athletes multiple reps and incorporate many players at once without any standing around. The drill works on defending the floppy action or pin-down screen and shows how to guard the action as a team. The 4-on-4 Stunting drill is a take on the old Shell drill, emphasizing stunting and closing out.

    Ball Screen Defense

    The ball screen has filtered down to nearly all levels of basketball, and sooner or later your team will face it and need a solution. The popular ball screen motion offense is widely used, and Coach Dutcher shows how to attack this offense and stop penetration. Dutcher puts in a 2-on-2 breakdown drill to practice ball screen defensive reads. Wrapping up the segment, you will see a competitive ball screen cut throat drill.
