This driving and finishing drill is among the thousands of resources for both coaches and player available from basketballhq. They have several more videos as well as basketball coaching resource articles.
Make sure that your speakers are on to hear the narration and that you can access YouTube to see the videos.
BasketballHQ has just released their Basketball Coaches Training Group. In the group you will get access to different workout plans that are going to be for the team as a whole, by position, by the number of players and more. This is an all inclusive training group that is going to allow you to walk onto the court with a full workout plan in hand for your players through our easy to use Iphone and Android App. Every drill comes with a video breaking down the details of the drill, and all of the videos are instructed by a Pro or College coach and demonstrated by a high level player. click here for More Information on the Basketball Coaches Training Group.
I have posted a sample from the Coaches Training Group below the first video.
The Coach in the video is Brian Baudinet, formerly an assistant coach with the NBA D-League Tulsa 66ers. Since the video was made, Coach Baudinet has taken a position with the Duquense University Men’s Staff and the Tulsa 66ers are now known as the Oklahoma City Blue.
The purpose of this post is to get you to think about adapting it to your needs and not just running the drill as is. The teaching points might fit your philosophy and if they don’t, at least it might stimulate your thinking to more clearly define and communicate to your players what you do want.
I like the idea of giving consideration to where your players will be spaced and where the help is likely to come from as you work on your straight line driving and finishing at the basket. You can also put your players in different spots on the floor and how you would teach your drives and finishes.
You will also want to work on the various finishes that your players use and not just the finishes in the drill.
