(Rental)-Breakdown Drills To Build Your Motion Offense
Breakdown Drills to Build Your Motion Offense
Eastern Illinois women’s head basketball coach Matt Bollant gives you a breakdown of his highly effective motion offense in this presentation. It is not the traditional Xs and Os clinic talk either. He provides you with high intensity, fundamental passing and cutting drills and actions that you will see with his players. These are the same drills that helped coach Bollant produce back-to-back 30-win seasons while he was at Wisconsin-Green Bay.
The presentation starts with players going through drills that help their development. The Start-Stop-Turn and Four Line drills help to develop the fundamentals necessary for success in any offense. They are perfect for the Motion offense. You will also see V-Cut and L-Cut which both help initiate the offense using varying speeds and timing.
Next is a series of post drills where the focus is on what to do before the ball is caught. Players work on their footwork and body control. Doing so helps players create easy shots for themselves once they get possession of the basketball.
After going over footwork and proper post-up angles, Coach Bollant introduces his 4-out, 1-in Motion principles needed to run the offense. One of the keys is understanding timing. It’s a fast-flowing offense and understanding timing makes the offense extremely difficult to defend both physically and mentally.
Finally, Coach Bollant shares five effective sets and can either lead into the motion offense or can be used as quick hitters to exploit some weakness in a defense. There is a backdoor play, a 1-4-high set, 3-point plays, and a secondary break. These will help make your offense unstoppable.
Coach Bollant doesn’t limit his instruction to just the court either. He discusses a number of things that are important in developing a winning program. His four ways to communicate a screen are just as important as the on-court lessons in how to set a screen.
The motion fundamentals that you learn in Coach Bollant’s presentation will give you what you need to run a quick, fast-flowing offense with speed and precision.
