In the clip below Nate Oats shares a few shooting drills that he uses to teach the concept of “One More Pass”
The first drill is a simple baseline drive and drift with one more pass to the slot for a shot.
The second drill is a baseline drive with a skip to the slot and one more pass to the corner for a shot.
The third drill is a ball screen with middle penetration and a kick to the slot followed by one more pass to the corner for a shot.
In the final drill Coach Oats shows his 2-on-1 Passing Drill where players will have to make a decision to shoot or make one more pass.
A coach starts with the ball in one slot with a player in the other slot and opposite corner. One defender is splitting the two offensive players. The coach will pass to one of the players and the defender will close to the shooter and the player will have to decide whether to shoot or make one more pass for the shot. Players must make a quick decision and are limited to just one pass.
The next drill in this sequence is a 3-on-2 drill. In this drill, you have offensive players in each slot and one corner. The ball is passed to one of the offensive players and one defender closes to the shooter. The offensive players must then decide to shoot or pass to whichever teammate is open. That player then must make a similar decision as the second defender closes to him/her. The offense is limited to only two passes. While the 3-on-2 Drill is not demonstrated in this video it is, along with many other great drill, available if you purchase full access to Nate Oats – Coaching School – Play Fast
