Basketball Development Drills - 20 Individual and Team Skill Drills
Winning more basketball games sometimes comes down to simply improving the essential skills that allow players to create and finish more shots within an offensive system. In this video, Louisville women’s head coach Jeff Walz shows you more than 20 individual and team skill development drills designed to build the ultimate post player. The drills are designed to be done with a partner and allow each athlete to work on their game. All of the drills are competitive and tracked with stats to show how a player has improved.
Walz was the 2018 ACC Coach of the Year and led the Cardinals to back-to-back ACC championships in 2018 and 2019. He has also led Louisville to two NCAA tournament runner-up finishes. Coach Walz knows how to create players confident in their abilities on offense.
Guard Development Drills
Guards control more of a possession than any other player. For that reason, they must be outstanding in their ability to dribble and pass. Coach Walz shares drills that help your players become confident dribblers and make clean passes while under pressure. You’ll see drills that help players learn to create space and attack their defender. Players are continually encouraged to add variety to their game and take different shots and make different moves.
Post Skill Development Drills
Post players work on ball handling and hand-eye coordination. You will see a series of drills that emphasize ball control. Others work on post-up techniques. The “Bad Pass Drill” works on sealing a defender and knowing when to release to catch an errant pass. Coach Walz works to expand his post players’ ranges with drills to improve their scoring abilities from the high post.
Team Skill Development Drills
Coach Walz uses a number of drills to build teamwork and work on multiple skills at the same time. These drills include:
- Transition Post Passing: Guards learn to perfect post passing while posts work on creating space.
- Deflection Drill: Players work on aggressive ball pressure with active hands and how to pass against it.
- Close Down Drill: All players work on finishing against contact in the paint.
Each drill Coach Walz uses helps condition players. He shows you how to push players past fatigue and get maximum effort from everyone. Players learn both offensive and defensive skills. This video has everything a coach needs from individual post and perimeter player drills to team drills to drills that can be used at any level of basketball.
