Coach Pigatti introduces some of his favorite passing drills including his trademark Olympic Ball Passing scheme. He also teaches players how to break out of traps using a drill where players learn how to pivot and step through the trap. Coach Pigatti teaches transition offense and the primary fast break using five-man weave basketball practice drills. To help players respond better to full-court pressure, he uses something unique that he calls Plus One Scramble. The presentation continues with two rebounding drills. One drill teaches out-of-box toughness and the other is used against teams that shoot a lot of three-pointers. Next is some discussion of late-clock out of bounds plays and then a demonstration of three different baseline plays and one sideline play with a number of options. Coach Pigatti ends by sharing three keys for scoring opportunities under the basket, from the sideline, or at full court as the game clock winds down.

Coach Pigatti begins with the Olympic Passing drill where eight players work together on passing skills. The emphasis in the drill is on catching on the move, working on pivoting, and preventing turnovers. The drill progresses to work on different types of passes. The overhead pass or the bounce pass, for example, can be the point of emphasis. The drill ends up going full court and forces players to go hard as they have to run longer distances. This works on passing skills but also incorporates an element of toughness. Two other passing drills are presented here. The 50 Pass Drill is one which requires players to make 50 passes without a dribble or a shot. The emphasis here is to improve passing while being disciplined in handling the basketball. Defensive Drills for Toughness Coach Pigatti demonstrates a few drills in this segment. He begins with the Loose Ball Charge Drill. A player starts at the free throw lane. A coach rolls the ball out onto the floor and the player must dive for it, recover it, and pass it back to the coach. The next phase is to save balls that are going out of bounds. Coach Pigatti reviews the rules of saving a ball here which includes the idea of saving the ball to the nearest corner. Finally, players take a charge as a teammate drives. Rebounding Drills for Toughness Pigatti shares that 72 percent of teams that win also win the rebounding battle. He then demonstrates the War Drill, a full-court, 4-on-4 drill that starts with four perimeter offensive players and four defensive players starting on the restricted arc facing the basket. A shot is taken and the defense must block out and secure the rebound. One variation of the drill is the defense has to let the ball hit the floor once before securing the rebound. This forces the defense to hold their block out longer than normal. There is no doubt that tough teams win more games. Coach Pigatti’s video shows you a number of ways in which you can build a culture of toughness putting your team on a path to win more games. Rent this basketball toughness drills DVD today.
