This drill is among the thousands of resources for both coaches and player available from basketballhq. They have several more videos as well as basketball coaching resource articles.
Basketball HQ has just launched their Guard Development Basketball Group.
This group is for point guards and wing players. The workouts in this group are going to be based around different in game actions; ball screens, penetration, finishing at the rim, etc. as well as overall skill development. All of our workouts are created by College and Professional coaches. Most of the drills in these workouts will require a partner. So make sure that you have a gym partner before selecting this group. If you don’t have a partner make sure you checkout our Complete Individual Training Basketball Group.
Working hard in the gym is great, but it is also important that you are working smart. By joining this guard development group you will get three custom workouts a week that you can take to the gym with you.
Each drill has a video explaining exactly how to do the drill. You will quickly be able to go from drill to drill and track your progress as you go.
There has never been a better way to have expert coaching in the gym with you at all times.
You can find out more about the program here: Guard Development Basketball Group.
You can use this drill to get some ideas for a way to create a similar routine into your practices or improvement season workouts. I like the idea of a timed competition to keep players focused. You can substitute your own finishing moves such as jump hooks, floaters, up and under, or anything that your players use to score in the lane.
A good time for college players is 8 minutes, but for high school it could be 9 minutes. The best way for you to determine the time is by running the drill with your squad a few times–especially if you make adjustments to adapt the drill to different shots.
Layup drills are 10 makes, jump shots require 8 minutes from each spot.
The drill is from Coach Mike Roberts, University of North Carolina Greensboro Assistant Mens Coach
