Dave Clarke (Rental)-Ball Screen Dribble Drive Offense $15.99
The Ball Screen Dribble Drive Offense Upgrade your Dribble Drive offense by adding ball screens as well as some elements of the Princeton offense to make it hard to defend. It’s exactly what Dave Clarke did when he took over at Owens Community College. Coach Clarke delivered a 14-win turnaround in Year 1 with his Ball Screen Dribble Drive. A year later, he took his team to an NJCAA Final Four. In this video, Clarke shows you how to integrate ball screens into the dribble drive to create an aggressive, hard-to-defend offense. The results create lanes to drive in and spaces from which to score all over the floor. How to Run the"5-out" Offense One of the most unique aspects of the offense is that all of the positions are interchangeable. Players learn every position on the floor. They know the rules and responsibilities for each spot which makes things easier as they move about the floor. Coach Clarke opens up the middle by putting a guard in the post and a “big” on the perimeter. This works especially well in the “Princeton” alignment. A set play that delivers a quick hitter before the motion is possible as is a quick hitter at the end of the shot clock. Implementing Ball Screens All of the concepts you will see are similar to other dribble drive offenses, but Clarke’s version uses ball screens. Using the 4 at the top to initiate the offense sets up a number of opportunities for screens. Making the 4 responsible for setting screens keeps thing simple and allows for continuation, which is a given in the dribble drive. Part of Coach Clarke’s on-court presentation involves a 5-on-0 walk-through as well as full speed demonstrations that emphasize the value of good spacing. He shows you how his players move off each pass, what options they have, and how all five players react to ball movement off the pass or dribble. Clarke also shows you seven different quick hitters that allow you to get quick scores in the paint or create wide open 3-point attempts. Coach Clarke’s offense is easy to implement and is perfect for junior high, high school, and junior college programs. It works especially well in programs where there is a lot of player turnover as well as in those that have a bunch of “small” players. Rent this Dribble Drive DVD today.
Dave Clarke (Rental)-High Rep Skill Development Drills $15.99
High Rep Skill Development Drills Former Owens Community College head coach Dave Clarke shows you how to run skill development drills with 12 to 15 players at a time. With high school teams having fewer coaches, Clarke shows you how to get players the repetitions they need to enhance their skill level. The drills are easy to teach and help coaches use their time efficiently while preparing players for the season. Dribbling Skill Development Clarke does a great job of combining skills into a single drill. The Cone Drill, for example, is one where players make various offensive moves and finish at the hoop with a variety of game-like scoring moves. Clarke calls it the Cone Drill but actually uses chairs and players perform the fundamental cross-over, behind the back, and spin moves through them. One of Clarke’s favorite moves is the floater. His players use it as well as reverse layups, a series of powerful jump stops, and mid-range jump shots to attack the basket. Passing Skill Development One of the lost arts in basketball is passing. When Clarke took over the program at Owens, he saw a need to get back to basic passing fundamentals. His teams improved their turnover percentage as a result. In games, most passes are side-to-side, yet so many passing drills emphasize straight ahead passes. Clarke puts more emphasis on the former. He demonstrates drills that teach players to rip the ball, step up to a pass, and use the proper footwork when throwing a pass. The passing drills include different ways to fake and how to use the dribble to improve passing angles. One drill you will see shows you how easy it is to teach and how the drill can change your team’s performance. Shooting Skill Development Successful teams are those that can shoot from anywhere on the court. In “Dave’s Shooting Drill,” Coach Clarke puts players at various angles. Players shoot from the elbow, the corner 3-pointer, and more as the drill covers all possible game shots. Players are constantly moving through the drill and working on other aspects of their game as they develop their shot. Throughout his entire presentation, Clarke emphasizes the value of having the whole team working on the same concepts at the same time. The idea of developing the complete basketball player helps all athletes reach their potential and, ultimately, leads to team success. Rent this Basketball Skill Development DVD today.
