This simple session lays the foundations for future basketball development. Instead of running around like headless chickens your players will be encouraged to think about where they are moving, and most importantly, why they are moving to get open to receive the ball!
What's in the session?
To promote efficient movement to your players we start with two fun warm up drills, designed to get players side-stepping and changing direction before then focusing on the V-Cut and Back Cut, simulating the sort of movement your players should be using on court to wrong-foot their opponent!
Your players will need to work hard throughout this session so it's only fair we finish with something fun to make sure they're eager to come back next week, which is why we finish with three games, including the fast-paced pass and move "3v3 Ten Passes" game!
Stop Travelling - Get your players to master the pivot. A simple technical session which focuses on your players pivoting, cutting and passing. No dribbling allowed!
Sprint shooting session! Get your players to practice shooting accurately at game speed to improve their shooting percentage!
Defence wins you championships! Coach your team how to cover, help and recover on defence and build a team difficult to beat.
Fast breaking, fast passing and fast all round play! Increase the intensity for your next game and blow your future opponents away.
"It is not only useful for staff who are experienced but a valuable tool for those subject staff who have to take teams."
The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
