    with Tom Izzo,
    Michigan State University Head Coach;
    3x National Coach of the Year,
    2000 NCAATournament Champions

    This is your opportunity to sit in on three Michigan State men's basketball practices! Watch from the sidelines as 3x National Coach of the Year Tom Izzo runs his athletes through warm ups, offense, defense, rebounding and more in preparation for the 2010-11 season.

    In addition, you will experience a pre-practice meeting with Izzo and his staff as they break down practice footage and discuss the adjustments they need to make in their next practice.

    Warm-Up Drills:
    Each practice begins with individual improvement drills consisting of ball handling, full court passing drills to reduce turnovers, rebounding drills to train bigs to "attack the rim" and shooting drills. After the warm up period, Izzo runs the Daily Dozen drill focusing on hard attacking lay ups and attacking the basket. Throughout each practice, Izzo demonstrates ways to get a large number of shooting reps at game speed.

    Transition Offense:
    Izzo shares his philosophy for transition offense as he teaches his 3- and 5-man break drill. Izzo emphasizes staying wide on the court, attacking the middle of the floor with the dribble, taking advantage of post touches, screening away on the opposite wing, spacing and flowing into the flex continunity series.

    Use Izzo's 2 man rebounding, 3 man rebounding, and WAR drills to coach "Hit and Get" rebounding and attacking the rim with two hands. Included in the rebounding segments is transition work into 5 on 5 full court offense and defense that reemphaizes the previous transition drills and offensive schemes and promotes game like situations.

    Izzo constructs his championship man-to-man and zone defense principles by breaking them down in individual and team defensive segments. See how Izzo builds his defense using drills for closing out, jumping to the ball, high and low post defense and more. Get insight into how he handles ball screens, the pin down screen and how he uses man and zone against double screen.

    Using 4 vs. 3 and 4 on 4 shell drills, Izzo puts together his overall team defense which includes ball pressure, communication and consistent help side recovery.

    Izzo's staff then takes the players through individual team shooting working on catching and shooting, shot fakes, pull up jump shots off of the dribble and lay-ups. The post players begin their work with individual post moves featuring power moves, up and unders and turnaround jump shots.

    Izzo ends practice with a review segment of his half court sets versus man-to-man and zone defenses. His arsenal of man offensive calls and zone offenses, which are run out of 1-2-2, 1-4 high and 1-3-1 alignments, allow great scoring opportunities for your perimeter shooters by coming off of multiple screens and post up isolations.

    Imagine what it would cost for you and your staff to travel to East Lansing, MI for three days to watch these practices. Now, for only $119.99, you can watch three Michigan State practices from your own home or office and implement the drills and concepts that have sent the Spartans to the Final Four six times.

Drew Hanlen, widely considered one of the best young skill development trainers in the game today, takes you through a detailed workout that will help advance your team's skill level. Coach Hanlen has worked with all levels of players, from youth to the NBA, and this video shows development drills used by both.

    In this presentation, Coach Hanlen covers 150 teaching points featuring both individual and team drills for dribbling, passing, defense and, most importantly, shooting. He shows how many of the drills can be adapted to make them more enjoyable and competitive for players. To get the most out of this session, the drills combine various game aspects such as the use of a variety of screens. In addition, in many of the drills, communication is required for the drill to work.

    The dribbling series, which includes a conditioning component, features drills that teach players game-like moves. Two excellent drills for teaching how to deal with and play through contact while dribbling are Own the Spot and the Four Zones. These drills help build players' ability to dribble around the most intense defenders. Players learn how to maintain control of the ball while getting bumped under tight pressure or when attacking the rim.

    Coach Hanlen moves on to effective, and efficient passing and shooting drills that incorporate the use of pin down screens. With good technique and smart reads of the defense, any player can get open looks coming off of pin down screens. Coach Hanlen dissects the elements of proper shooting, discussing five key teaching points that will dramatically improve players' shooting percentages. He shares various bad shooting habits he has seen and then shows the drills he uses to correct them. These drills will create a game-like situation throughout your practice.

    Develop your defensive technique through a series of competitive defensive drills that maximize your ability to teach great on-ball defense. Coach Hanlen moves through post defense and post development and ends with individual development that incorporates various, previously taught skills.

    The final segment features a great full-court team drill that combines catch and shoot, outlet passes, passing, and 1-on-1 rebounding and keeps players constantly moving.

    with Shaka Smart, University of Texas Head Coach;
    former Virginia Commonwealth University Head Coach;
    2011 Clarence Gaines National Coach of the Year. 2011 Final Four appearance. Four 27-win seasons (2009-2013).

    See how Shaka Smart, one of the brightest coaches in the game today, builds a winning program. This presentation gives you access to an early season practice. Over the span of 150 minutes, the Rams run a fast-paced workout with a focus on individual and team defense, breaking down offensive skills and learning to execute their game plan in competitive scenarios.

    Coach Smart's teams are known for their intense pressure defense. In this session, they work on trapping and defending against pin down screens. They use 3-on-3 to develop their full-court defensive pressure skills. Players guard the ball, defend the ball side, help side, etc., focusing on foot fakes and jumping to the ball to understand that they are connected on the court and working together. The "Rapid Fire" drill works on closeout techniques, teaching correct form and building the habit of a correct closeout. Later in the session, players run a weak side closeout drill.

    Coach Smart uses stations to emphasize various fundamentals of half-court defense. Stations maximize practice time by using assistant coaches to teach multiple skills in a short period of time. Assistant coaches run separate stations and teach defensive techniques that focus on defending pin down screens, help-side perimeter defense and guarding the weak side exchange. They run several different defensive shell drills for man and zone defense, and disadvantage drills to train players to think one pass ahead and to work on rotations. At the end of the session, they work on taking a perfect charge.

    All skill development is done within the framework of the Rams' high/low offense. Watch as Coach Smart teaches post players to steal and see the various low post moves that they develop. Perimeter players work on cutting and dribble penetration. From that they work on the shots and layups they get from the penetration. Various competitive shooting drills are run at different times throughout the practice.

    Later in the session, players walk through their transition, zone and player-to-player offenses. From 5-on-0 to playing live 5-on-5, these settings are used to teach both offensive and defensive principles.

    In the second part of the presentation, Coach Smart takes the floor and discusses the principles and core values of his program. He also explains why he believes his teams play so hard for him. He talks about the "havoc" style of play and how it starts on the first day of practice with full-court 1-on-1 and how he builds from there. All aspects of the VCU defense are discussed during a question-and-answer session . Coach Smart discusses a variety of topics, including the statistics tracked throughout every practice, the fundamentals of a defensive trap, building "winners" and building the defense from 1-on-1 up to 5-on-5, before demonstrating the rotations of the program's three core trapping systems.

    A Collection of Offensive Sets from the Coaching Profession's Best

    If your coaching toolkit includes a variety of offensive plays, opposing teams will have greater difficulty preparing to play against you.

    In what amounts to an offensive encyclopedia that includes half-court sets from 11 of the greatest coaching minds in today's game, Championship Productions shares clips of some of the best plays ever filmed. Names like Mike Krzyzewski, Pat Summitt, Tom Izzo, Bill Self, Larry Brown, and more are all represented along with some of their trademark formations like the 5-Out, Horns, Hi-Low, and much, much more.

    Add spice to your coaching portfolio with a smorgasbord of half-court offenses. Here's a taste of a few of the plays we've included:

    Duke Elbow Series:
    Duke coaches Chris Collins and Mike Krzyzewski demonstrate the Elbow Series, complete with Elbow Weak, Elbow Up, and Elbow Get. Each space the floor for several 3-point shooters while freeing the rim from defensive protection.

    Fred Hoiberg Series:
    Iowa State Head Coach Fred Hoiberg shares his 50 Pistol, 50 Dive Stick, and 50 Dive Special from a free-flowing, 5-out offensive formation. Utilizing dribble hand-offs and misdirection, these plays create multiple scoring options at the rim and from the 3-point range. Hoiberg also offers his Horns Handoff Burn, High Stacks Pacer, L, Owl, and High plays, giving you a variety of plays to create scoring opportunities from all areas of the court.

    Tom Izzo Series:
    Michigan State Head Coach Tom Izzo offers his Chest, Chest Down, Thumb Down, Horns, and I plays. Each has sharp cuts, quick ball movement and misdirection to help your players score at the rim or complete a weak side shot attempt.

    Larry Brown Series:
    Former NBA and current SMU Head Coach Larry Brown has his team run through Split, Horns, and Horns Shake to get his post players moving quickly from screen-and-roll perimeter action into low-block scoring position. See how your posts can take advantage of the defenders surrounding the action around the ball.

    Gregg Marshall Segment:
    Wichita State's Gregg Marshall pushes his team through 41 Iso, a play designed to use stagger screens to free up an open shooter if the initial baseline drive is cut off.

    Greg McDermott Series:
    Creighton Head Coach Greg McDermott demonstrates a series of nine plays that start from the same formations; each has a counter that shows how a defense might play the various screening actions involved. Plays such as Blitz, Blitz 1 Down, and Blitz 1 Back take advantage of movement as a way to secure the post position for an easy score against an out-of-place defender.

    Dave Paulsen Series:
    Bucknell Head Coach Dave Paulsen shares his V-Entry and Rip, which help create shots for players who may not be able to do so on their own. Using stagger screens, quick ball reversals into ball screens, and spacing puts the defense in difficult positions and aids in creating shots off the pass rather than the dribble.

    Tim Floyd Segment:
    UTEP Head Coach Tim Floyd shows his NBA influence with the 43 play. Court spacing and a high screen and roll leads to dribble penetration at mid-key with two shooters at the ready in the deep corners if the defense decides to collapse on the dribble drive.

    Tara VanDerveer Segment:
    Hall of Famer and current Stanford Head Coach Tara VanDerveer has her team execute Scram, a play designed to dupe the defense into overplaying a double screen, which leaves the screener open on a duck in at the rim.

    Pat Summitt Series:
    Hall of Famer and former Tennessee Head Coach Pat Summitt, puts her team through Spin, Horns, and Horns 2, a series of plays designed to get the ball inside for a layup. Using block-to-block screens, duck-ins, or screen and rolls, she shows how to get the ball into the post off of a cut triggered by movement on the perimeter.

    Bill Self Series:
    Kansas Head Coach Bill Self shares two key plays, Regular and Pitch Ahead, which are both designed to get the ball inside where he knows he'll have a size advantage. Stagger screens and ball reversals ultimately end with a high low setup with the low post having inside scoring position on an over-matched defender.

    Coaches at the high school level or above looking to implement free-flowing movement, misdirection, and screening action into their offensive game plans need look no further than this "best of" production that details several offensive plays from 11 of the greatest minds in the game of basketball today.

    2014 Big 12 Tournament Champions; 2012 Big 12 Co-Head Coach of the Year;
    10-year NBA veteran and former executive with the Minnesota Timberwolves

    Fred Hoiberg provides an extensive look into the Iowa State transition offense system. Using detailed markerboard diagrams, he takes you through mid-season practice sessions that focus on a simple primary break and secondary actions. Along with his extensive diagrams, he gives a special glimpse into his playbook of which some of these options have not even been put into their offense yet. Key points include an emphasis on spacing, opening lanes for playmakers and being in position to force the defense to make decisions. The primary break and secondary actions are drilled on court in 5-on-0 and 5-on-5 situations.

    Coach Hoiberg begins by illustrating his primary break, showing the spots that floor wings and posts need to fill to create good spacing. He explains how big men create space by running the floor and how players should react to middle and baseline drives.

    Next, Coach Hoiberg shows three secondary actions involving drag screens, a double stagger screen and pin down screen. He includes two quick hitters that take advantage of aggressive defenses to get good looks at the rim.

    Coach Hoiberg also covers a late-game situation inbounds play to get a three-point look for your best shooter or an easy lay-up for your post. He runs his players work through an on-court, game-like drill to help players get good looks at the basket even though they're leading.

    Finally, Coach Hoiberg shares two out-of-bounds plays and talks about his philosophy of sectioning his season practice into three distinct segments and how each segment is used. Tailoring his offense to the personnel he has is also discussed.

    With Coach Hoiberg's transition offense, your teams will be able to run a well-spaced, disciplined fast break that will leave defenses out of position and always one step behind the offense.

    2014 Big 12 Tournament Champions; 2012 Big 12 Co-Head Coach of the Year;
    10-year NBA veteran and former executive with the Minnesota Timberwolves

    In this dynamic presentation featuring five live practices, Fred Hoiberg focuses on defensive concepts that help his team shut down their opponent's offense.

    He explains his transition defense philosophy, including who is sent to rebound offensively, who gets back on defense and how he builds a wall to take away key scoring areas on the floor. Coach Hoiberg illustrates several drills on the whiteboard and demonstrates the Line Transition drill on court.

    Coach Hoiberg explains how he uses 3-on-3 drills to improve defensive skills to guard ball screens and dribble hand-offs. Each drill focuses on important details like hand position, staying active and communication. Drills are diagramed and demonstrated on court.

    The presentation also includes a segment on defending the post with undersized players. Coach Hoiberg shares key points on how to force post players into turnovers by using high, active hands and taking away baseline moves to force post moves to the middle of the floor.

    Coach Hoiberg's offers an in-depth look at his unique NBA-style of defending ball screens to keep them on one side of the floor using weak side help and rotation. Different calls are used to communicate how the defense plays the screens. Two drills for defending ball screens are shown.

    Finally, everything is put together in Coach Hoiberg's "Down-Back-Stop" drill. In this full-court game simulation between two teams, players start with the ball on one end of the floor and play the offensive possession. They transition down to the other end on defense, come back on offense and stop. Between each Down-Back-Stop drill players huddle with a coach to discuss the previous repetition and the emphasis of the next rep.

    This video will help the undersized team prepare for opponents, learn to defend the ball, defend screens, create turnovers in the post and stop teams in transition.

    10-year NBA veteran and former executive with the Minnesota Timberwolves

    Take the opportunity to watch Fred Hoiberg put his players through an off-season shooting workout utilizing drills from some the NBA's all-time best shooters - Larry Bird, Chris Mullin, Reggie Miller and others. These strategies helped Coach Hoiberg become the leading 3-point percentage shooter in the NBA in 2005. Now he uses them with his own team.

    Coach Hoiberg begins with warm-up drills for shooters that emphasize footwork, balance and finishing every shot. The workout continues with 10 more shooting drills that have conditioning elements, game-like shooting for situations like coming off screens, transition shooting, finishing at the rim and shooting off the catch.

    After each drill has been completed, Coach Hoiberg's shooters complete a round of threes: Players make two three-pointers from five different spots on the floor (corner, wing, top, wing, corner) and then come back around making one three-pointer at each spot. After the round of threes, players must make five free throws to continue to the next drill.

    Coach Hoiberg's is a firm believer that players are made better in the off-season. With enough time and effort, these drills will create the muscle memory and mental toughness to turn your athletes in top shooters.

    with Vance Walberg, Philadelphia 76ers Assistant Coach;
    former University of Massachusetts Assistant Coach;
    Creator of the Innovative Dribble Drive Attack Offense,
    2005 California JC Undefeated State Champions

    Vance Walberg's Dribble Drive offense has taken the basketball world by storm. An idea 10 years ago, this system has evolved into an offensive attack adopted by John Calipari, Larry Brown, Lawrence Frank and hundreds of coaches of all levels all over the world. Based on a unique two point guard (attackers) set, this attack is complemented by two wings and a rim-running post player. The offense features two unconventional ideas: there are no screens and the post player runs to the weak side of the floor. Both features create more space for dribble penetration. Walberg breaks down each player's movement on the floor according to ball penetration. As players react to penetration they move into drag, drop and rack zones. The goal is to create spacing and gaps and to get to the rack. Walberg also teaches middle and baseline penetration and the kick-back option that can produce open 3-point shots or open drives to the basket. In addition, Walberg goes through his "Daily 45 Drills," which he runs the first 45 minutes of each practice. These fast moving drills teach the fundamentals needed to run the Dribble Drive Attack Offense - including his famous "Blood Drills." These drills focus on shooting, passing, footwork, cutting, catching and pivoting. Walberg demonstrates every part of the Dribble Drive Attack in various 3-on-2, 2-on-1 full court breakdown drills. Throughout, he highlights the key drills and teaching points he uses to build the offense. Sports Illustrated calls Vance Walberg "the Master" of the Dribble Drive Offense and one of the top innovators in the game of basketball today. Now you can learn this fun and high scoring way to play from the inventor himself!

  • 05/30/15--22:00: The Swing Offense 3-Pack
  • BD-04482A: with Ryan Looney, Seattle Pacific University Head Coach;
    2013 Great Northwest Athletic Conference Tournament Champions;
    Ended the 2013 season ranked Number 2 in the country

    The "Swing Offense" is one of the most successful offenses being used today at the high school and university levels. Seattle Pacific University Head Coach Ryan Looney explains how this offense helps promote unselfishness, limit turnovers, provide great spacing, multiple players post up opportunities, and allows them to get to the free throw line. All of which is critical to offensive efficiency and to the success his team has enjoyed running this offense.

    Through the use of diagrams, on-court instruction and video from game footage, Coach Looney gives you everything you need to put this offense into action. He details the basics and advanced skills and actions in the swing offense. You will see how simple this offense is to teach, yet how difficult it is to defend.

    Starting with the transition game, Looney shows you how the Falcons transition from defense to offense and flows into the offense. Each player's role is broken down in transition and he demonstrates where early 3-point shots and post ups will occur. You'll learn various entries to start the offense, as well as watch game footage to see how the team transitions into the offense.

    Coach Looney dives into the half court set-up with the two main types of screens:

    • The Up Screen - This action is set up by a simple pass to the wing. The cutter then uses the screen to get to the rim. The screener steps out to the perimeter and takes the cutters position. This action allows for a quick scoring opportunity but also keeps the team properly spaced.
    • The Flex Screen - As the ball skips from one side of the court to the other a flex screen is set for the weakside wing. It is, and always has been, an extremely effective way to get a player a great look at the rim near the basket.

    These two screens are the foundation of the Swing offense. Coach Looney shows where and when each of the screens is used and the possibilities that the offense can exploit from each screen. However, the offense does offer other options to counter the consistency of the screens. As defenders try to fight through the screens or anticipate the cuts, baseline drives open up. Pick and pop options are also present as well as wing ball screens. Multiple post-up opportunities also present themselves which create high percentage shots for a variety of players on the court. Each option is clearly presented in this video and all are easy to teach and consistent enough for players to learn.

    The Swing offense is a great team offense. It promotes good floor spacing and constant movement. Defenders are required to constantly fight through screens, adjust to off ball movement and stay active on the weak side. Eventually the defense will make a mistake that will lead to easy buckets for the team running the Swing. Getting your team to be unselfish is an important aspect to having a successful offense. With the Swing, unselfishness is almost guaranteed. Players are constantly getting open and teammates can easily identify this and get them the ball.

    Whether you're an expert looking to refresh your ideas on the swing offense or a beginning coach looking to improve your understanding of half court offense, this is a must have DVD for your collection.

    Every team will face pressure defense or a defensive scheme to disrupt them on offense. Ryan Looney shows you how teams that run the Swing offense can relieve that pressure or adjust to various schemes to get high percentage shots. Coach Looney has guided the Seattle Pacific Falcons to tremendous success over the past four years. His Swing offense is a major reason why they have had so much success. It is however, these sets and entries that allow his team to effectively get the offense started.

    Through the years, Coach Looney has effectively found ways to counter any action the defense may throw at his teams as they begin to run the Swing offense. In this presentation he gives you these counters.

    With a set, motion offense like the Swing, a pattern is run that is extremely difficult to defend. Most teams will resort to added pressure on the ball, as well as denials on the wing to stop the offense from getting going. Coach Looney teaches you three pressure release sets they use when a team decides to get into the passing lanes and pressure them in both the half court and full court. With each pressure release, you will learn about the backdoor opportunities include Fire, V-Out, and the Backdoor Reversal entry that will keep your opponent honest when they are guarding them. After a few times through it, the defense will have to change how it defends you.

    Once in the half court, Coach Looney diagrams and uses on court demonstrators to show you 7 different entries they use to get into the swing offense. With each entry, Coach Looney describes when to use the entry and what kind of advantage it creates. He demonstrates their dribble entry, post dive, point guard dive, ball screen from wing, ball screens with the post players, and a wings up entry that guarantees ball reversal and movement in the half court. By using the ball screen options, defenses will think you have left the Swing, but each quickly and easily molds back into the Swing. This seamless transition continues to make the Swing offense and its entries incredibly difficult to guard.

    With any good offense, you must have set plays that can lead right into the swing offense. Coach Looney gives you three complete sets that incorporate post screening action and lead into high low scoring options with your post players. You will have a complete swing offense after you have installed these sets and entries into your half court offense.

    As with Coach Looney's Swing Offense DVD, on-court instruction is his main tool to teach the entries, but he also uses diagrams of the action as well as showing game footage of each concept that he teachers. This presentation and these sets are easy to understand and simple to teach. Combing this DVD with the Swing offense DVD and you are ready to put this dangerous offense into action.

    The real key to any successful offense is the skill level of the players running it. Seattle Pacific University Head Coach Ryan Looney believes players have to have a skill set that still allows them to succeed should the system fail. In this basketball drills video he not only shares the breakdown drills to develop the skills all players need to have, but he also does this within the concepts of the Swing Offense.

    You will get six basic breakdown drills that teach your players the game shots they will get within the swing offense along with a perimeter and post player skill development workout. These are challenging workouts and drills that focus on the up screen, flex screen, and side pick and roll screen. Coach Looney uses a variety of equipment to help his players play through contact and create and one and one's to control the free throw game.

    One of the first skills his team works on is screening. They work on four options they get from the Up Screen and the four they get from the Flex Screen. He will teach you how to set your screens in correct spots, make cuts of least resistance to create a better scoring opportunity, and have excellent vision to the post where most of your offense will come from. Swing, Bump, and Separation shots are shooting drills where they work on shooting coming off screens. The focus is having their hands up and their feet balanced before they receive the ball to shoot.

    Post skills work on stance and positioning. Teaching post players to get low and how to use their arms to take up more space. Various basic post moves are covered. Perimeter development covers different ways a defender may guard the ball handler on a screening action and how each action can be defeated by the ball handler.

    Skill development is essential to any team's success. As you learn how to install and master the swing offense you will learn how to put your players in successful situations and still focus on individual development within the breakdown drills.

    Nine different coaches from the NBA, college and high school levels give you the inbound plays that have helped them win some of the most critical games of their careers. Legendary coaches like Hubie Brown, Tom Izzo, Pat Summitt, and Mike Krzyzewski show you how to score against man or zone defenses with over 25 inbound plays from baseline, sideline, and full-court situations.

    This collection of some of the best inbounds plays in basketball today give you the look at the basket you need to score in a variety of special situations.

    Baseline Inbounds Plays vs. Man-to-Man Defenses:

    • Chips - Coach Tom Izzo shows you how to use pin screens to create inside and outside scoring opportunities. You'll see how to use different alignments and how to get a lob for a quick score at the end of a game. The 31 and 32 plays from his inbounds collection show how to use curl shooters off of double screens at the free throw line for layups and open 3-point shots.
    • Blue Alignment - Villanova Head Coach Jay Wright shares two plays from his "blue alignment" that create isolation for your best players to run a two-man game in space, giving you as many as eight different scoring opportunities within seven seconds.
    • Box Alignment - 2010 USA Today National High School Coach of the Year Vance Downs demonstrates five plays from his "box alignment" that show you how to get open looks at the rim from back screen and screen-the-screener actions.
    • Triangle Set - Former college coach Mike Montgomery demonstrates how to run a screen-the-screener action from a triangle set for some quick open looks. If no shot is available, this play flows into single-double screens for your most talented scorer to use.
    • Duke Line Series - Former Duke associate head coach Chris Collins shares five plays from Duke's "line" series. Each play highlights a different player for added unpredictability and can be used as counter defensive overplays on the basic set play.

    Baseline Inbounds Plays vs. Zone Defenses:

    • Fist Out 1-4 Set - Coach Downs, high school coach of Harrison Barnes and Doug McDermott, uses the Fist Out 1-4 set to stretch the zone defense for an open corner shot off a pin down screen.
    • Box Alignment - Legendary coach Pat Summitt shows you how to gain a wide-open mid-range jump shot by screening in an entire side of the zone from the box alignment.
    • 1-4 Low Set - Thom Sigel, two-time Illinois State Championship Coach, demonstrates how to msdirect the defense from this "1-4 Low" set to create an open gap under the rim for your inbounder to get an easy layup.

    Sideline Inbounds Plays:

    • 1 and 2 Plays - Use flare, stagger and shuffle screens for multiple scoring opportunities with the "1" and "2" inbounds plays. Coach Izzo demonstrates the "golden" inbounds play that uses simultaneous screening actions off of a dribble handoff to give you three different scoring options that are incredibly difficult for the defense to cover all at once.
    • White Play - Villanova Head Coach Jay Wright shows how to score with less than 3 seconds left in the game. Depending on the amount of time left on the clock, Coach Wright explains how to use different options within the play to get the best shot possible.
    • Double - Hall of Fame coach Hubie Brown walks through a "double" sideline inbounds play that gives you the look you need for a game-winning basket using double screens and back screens to create several inside and outside scoring opportunities.

    Full Court Inbounds Plays:

    with Chris Mack, Xavier University Head Coach;
    2010 A-10 Coach of the Year; 2x A-10 regular season champs;
    2009 Basketball Times Rookie Coach of the Year

    In this on-court clinic presentation, Chris Mack shares everyday drills that are the backbone of his aggressive pack line defensive system.

    Coach Mack teaches the defensive basics using individual and team drills that will:

    • Create extreme ball pressure
    • Keep the ball out of the middle of the court
    • Force the offense to take contested jump shots "away from the box"
    • Develop excellent help defense and improve communication on defense
    These drills emphasize "discouraging the shot, but playing the drive" through positioning, closing out with high hands, building walls, closing gaps and jumping to the ball.

    After building the basics, Mack breaks down post defense from initial positioning on the floor to positioning after the offensive catch in the post. You will see his wall up technique for post defense that will create "the toughest 3-foot shot to make."

    Bringing all of the basic defensive concepts and rules together, Mack demonstrates his 3-out, 1-in (unguarded post) drill, his 3-on-3 identity drill and 3-out 1-in identity drill (4-on-4 with a post) to train the players in a game-like tempo.

    Coach Mack's Xavier teams are known for their aggressive man defensive play and this DVD gives you insight into how you can implement these defensive principles and drills.

    with Gregg Popovich, San Antonio Spurs (NBA) Head Coach;
    1,000 career wins, 2013-14 NBA Coach of the Year; 5x NBA Championship Coach

    All coaches have a group of favorite practice drills, and NBA great Gregg Popovich is no exception. He dedicates this presentation to drills that have led to NBA championships. He begins with a simple, yet fundamental 3-on-0 pass and cut drill, which is a staple for the Spurs and is run throughout the entire season. Full court 3-on-3 and 4-on 4 weave drills expose and develop passing, thinking and decision-making. An excellent drill to establish defense is the 4-on-4-on-4 drill. Without the pick away and post up options available, players must pass, cut and maintain good spacing while looking to score. Conditioning and communication are two key elements of this competitive drill. Later in the drill, the pick & roll is added to the offense to create difficulty for the defense. The down and back 5-on-5 drill incorporates all of the pieces of the game. To teach several defensive principles, the full-court one-on-one drill is used often. Technique, desire, and passion are required to be successful in this intense drill. Disc II includes a favorite shooting drill where points are given for makes and points are lost for misses. The rocker and jab step can be added to this drill. Popovich is committed to fundamentally sound offensive play. The 5-on-0 motion drill is run full court to improve offensive patterns. He introduces the gaggle, which is a two-man game on one side of the floor. Popovich closes by teaching the finer points of his motion offense. He does an excellent job of stopping play to explain and teach players his offense. Cornerstones of this offense are the 3-on-3 drill, the gaggle play and the 2-on-2 elbow look and are broken down often.

    former Virginia Commonwealth University Head Coach;
    2011 Clarence Gaines National Coach of the Year. 2011 Final Four appearance. Four 27-win seasons (2009-2013).

    Pressure defense is a critical component of Coach Smart's Havoc style of play. More than just occasionally running a press, Havoc begins with a mindset, a philosophy and values.

    With Coach Smart's defensive system, you can trap your opponents anywhere on the court and force them to play at an up-tempo pace. In this instructional video, Coach Smart breaks down the two full-court presses that allowed his team to lead the nation in steals and turnover margin in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons. He also shares the five core values that go hand-in-hand with Havoc and have made his teams successful.

    On the court, Smart demonstrates the simple yet vital concept of how to trap. Learn how to close out correctly to the ball handler, force an obvious pass, and be "elastic" in the trap. He also provides off-the-ball directions. Smart stresses proper distance between your man and the ball, shares insights into the value of proper foot and hand fakes, and gets energized by players' willingness to get back-tips while running the press.

    Smart walks players through their responsibilities for the "Double Fist" Man-to-Man Press. These examples are clear and concise and show each step, so any coach can put in this pressure defense.

    Smart also teaches his version of the Diamond Press. This 1-2-1-1 attack creates great opportunities to force your opponents into bad spots. Traps come quick and easy; offenses are forced to pass to players they don't want handling the ball.

    This season, wreak havoc on your opponents. Install one of the great pressure-defensive systems in basketball today-the same system that took Shaka Smart to the Final Four. Order now!

    back-to-back Atlantic Sun Conference Coach of the Year (2013-14);
    2014 Atlantic Sun Conference regular season and tournament champions;
    coached the first NCAA tournament victory in program history (2014 over Duke);
    2012 Tournament Championship

    In a live practice setting, Coach Bob Hoffman presents a great collection of intense and effective practice drills and coaching techniques for creating a culture of teamwork and communication. This constant emphasis on building players into a cohesive unit has enabled a small-conference underdog like Mercer to take down powerhouse basketball programs in the NCAA tournament.

    Transition Offense
    Learn how to develop your transition offense using five full-court drills that emphasize different aspects of the fast break.

    • The Three Lines, Two Balls drill works on finishing lay-ups and igniting the offense with a quick outlet.
    • The Pacer drill challenges players to make jump shots in transition.
    • Watch as Coach Hoffman progressively increases the challenge of his Three Man Weave drill by shrinking the time goals and passes allowed on trips up and down the court.
    • Work on scoring in advantage situations in transition with the Five Man Weave to 3-on-2 Back drill.

    Defense is emphasized as well with the "Line Transition" drill. This drill pressures the defense to protect the rim in a temporary disadvantage situation.

    Early Offense
    You'll also get new ideas on how to develop your own early offense using break down drills. Using a series of 3-man and 4-man full-court drills, Coach Hoffman's team practices the scoring actions they'll look for in their transition attack such as open jump shots for their guards and different ways to feed the post for the big who sprinted the floor.

    Finally, see how the coaches control their scrimmages to teach players the details of their offensive and defensive system. Each stop in the action includes a brief huddle where new strategies and cleanup from the previous play can be discussed.

    This presentation can be used as a template for a full practice and can also be dissected drill by drill for your own purposes. This open practice gives drills and skills for building the teamwork needed to have an effective up-tempo offensive attack.

    Take your ball screen offense to the next level! Mercer Head Coach Bob Hoffman focuses on offense and the various plays you can implement to make your offense more adaptable and less predictable. In 2014, Coach Hoffman led the Bears to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1985.

    Using chalk talk and live practice footage, Coach Hoffman shares the ins and outs of his system from transition offense to quick hitters to zone offense and more. A key element of Coach Hoffman's offensive philosophy is to keep plays simple yet adaptable in setup and execution to keep opponents guessing.

    Before hitting the court, Coach Hoffman explains the offensive philosophy behind his mode of attack. He believes a fast tempo secondary transition is a crucial element. Using the whiteboard, he covers some of the different quick hitters he uses in his version of the Carolina Break. These actions are utilized based on defensive reads and can easily flow into the main offense if a scoring opportunity does not immediately present itself.

    Coach Hoffman shares two examples of box set plays used by his teams to score off of delayed ball screens. Both of these plays make use of some early screening action to transform into any Horns set you'd like to run.

    Believing that dead ball situations should be viewed as opportunities to score instead of just getting the ball in, Coach Hoffman shows you two baseline inbounds plays to attack man or zone defenses.

    Once the Mercer basketball team hits the court for practice, you'll see more plays from their ball screen offense. In both 5-on-0 half-court and full-court practice segments, players work through scoring options in their transition offense and also run through several series of plays in their early offense.

    With the Double, both posts set up a double ball screen in transition that the point guard can use or reject to initiate different options. Use this play to confuse the defense over who has help responsibilities on the ball handler or the roll player. Chin offers set plays that use a down screen to free up a post to run into a high-ball screen without a defender in position to help. You'll also learn how to flow into early ball screens in your transition offense along with a couple variations to the play that will help you tweak this basic action.

    This practice also gives you a chance to look at other aspects of the Mercer offensive system. You'll see a review of four baseline inbounds plays that make use of stagger screens and screen-the-screener actions.

    Coach Hoffman practices his zone offense against a 1-2-2 zone defense with the "Muscle" and "Muscle Runner" set plays. Both of these plays overload the defense and create post-up opportunities against the zone with a high ball screen and quick reversal to a corner shooter.

    You'll also learn how to confidently advance the ball against full-court defenses with a simple press offense.

    This presentation is a culmination of over 25 years of coaching offense. Coach Hoffman has created a diverse and adaptable offensive strategy that is easily learned and used by his players. These strategies will keep you in the driver's seat while your opponents are left guessing.

    Offense wins games, but defense wins championships. Put your team in championship mode with these defensive strategies and skills from Mercer Head Coach Bob Hoffman. In 2014, Coach Hoffman led Mercer to the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history. In addition, the 14 seed Bears knocked off a 3 seed to advance to the third round.

    In this presentation, Coach Hoffman emphasizes and builds on the fundamentals of closeouts, footwork and communication in every drill - in a live practice setting. His overall defensive philosophy can be summarized in one word: flexibility. Throughout a season, he teaches many different defensive principles to counter the most common offensive approaches. You'll see how he balances the importance of defensive fundamentals while teaching different shell drill variations, as well as different ways to defend on-ball screens.

    Coach Hoffman begins his practice with small-group defensive stations. His assistant coaches take charge of teaching as the team hustles through a series of drills focused on improving defensive tactics. The Single/Double drill will help your players learn to coordinate the way they handle single or double off-ball screens. The Closeout/Contain/Chest Up drill helps players improve their on-ball defense by recovering to the ball and stopping the offense from scoring. The Show drill focuses on hedges when defending a side ball screen.

    In this segment, you will pick up numerous strategies for handling on-ball and off-ball screens. Nearly every coach uses a variation of shell drill to practice team defense. Using several progressive layers of the shell drill, Coach Hoffman teaches players how to work together to defend basket cuts, staggered weak side screens, staggered screens and baseline drives.

    The Box Screening drill is a great tool to work on both setting and defending screens. In a small area, 4-on-4 setting, offensive players work on timing and spacing while the defense fights through and/or around down screens and back screens.

    In a 5-on-5 scrimmage segment that ends the practice session, you'll see how to mix up your strategies for defending on-ball screens with switches, jamming the roller, showing and more.

    This segment from the Mercer Open Practice series will inspire you to examine your defensive approach. Coach Hoffman is a great communicator and his emphasis on fundamental defensive skills and communication will resonate with any coach.

    2012 Tournament Championship

    This Open Practice look at skill development will show you how to build players who can take care of the ball and finish at the rim. Coach Bob Hoffman demonstrates drills to enhance footwork, passing and ball handling, cutting and screening, and position specific skills; all shown in a live practice format.

    Ball Handling
    For ball handling, players work on improving their ability to use both hands to dribble and pass. This segment includes individual and partner drills. In groups of two, players work on their footwork for both offense and defense. A major defensive topic in Coach Hoffman's philosophy is proper closeout technique. In this partner setting, one person works on closing out under control while the other person works on straight drives, crossover drives, jab steps, lifts and front pivoting.

    Triple Threat
    A good offensive player must have a solid, diverse arsenal of moves out of the triple threat position. Here players work to improve, solidify and automate jump stops, jab steps, rips, shot fakes and the first step. Eliminating wasted motion makes your players harder to guard as they explode out of their triple threat to attack the rim.

    You'll see how players work on a variety of different passes through their Partner Passing drill. In groups of two and each player with a ball, the team works on a variety of entry passes with either hand, as well as overhead skip passes. Being able to deploy the pass from different angles enables your players to deliver the ball whenever it's needed versus a tough defender.

    Position Play
    While each player should have an all-encompassing skill set, a heightened position-specific skill set is a must. Guards and forwards are separated for this segment. Guards work on the perimeter to improve cutting, filling and fanning. Spacing and timing are big topics here, too. At the other end, forwards work on sealing the defender in the post, dives and duck-ins, Mikans and power moves.

    Coach Hoffman also emphasizes finishing lay-ups with three different drills that work on attacking the rim in half-court and full-court situations. Train your players to make strong drives into the paint and use different finishes at the basket with the Live Ball Lay-Ups drill. In the Full Court Lay-Up drill, players simulate bursting out at full-speed for a fast break lay-up. The 2-on-0 Lay-Ups Off the Glass drill teaches players to complete quick outlets and sprint lanes in transition to score.

    Regardless of skill level, teaching the basics is an open-ended challenge. Footwork and ambidexterity with the ball are essential components of success. This presentation offers plenty of short drills you can easily implement in your practice or use as an hour-long workout.
