Post Player Skill Workout

Sheridan College Generals Basketball Post Workout

This was submitted by Steve Smiley. Steve is currently an Assistant Coach at Weber State. At the time this workout was published, Steve was the Head Coach at Sheridan College.

I will be posting his workout for perimeter players on Monday.

Here is his post workout:

POST WARM-UP (Approximately one minute on each of these, SIT INTO YOUR GAME)

Two Ball Dribbling Sequence + Shelton Drills

Dribbling and Juggling

Take Infield with tennis ball (Low and wide, toes to the outside, SIT INTO YOUR GAME)

Imaginary Defense (Talk your defense, yell it out)

Moving without the ball (Work independently or work in pairs with another post or perimeter)

Break Package Sprints (To the rim for crunch)

Crab Dribbles

Shooting Progression

Groove your go to hooks

Mikan Sequence at one basket or Full Court Mikans

 

REMEMBER

Keep it straight, Aim for the BACK HALF OF THE BASKET

Get it up. Top of the shot; top of the board (WE WANT A CONSISTENT ARC ON EACH SHOT)

Hold a one second high follow through

Land six inches closer on your shot

  • Use a feeder, tossback, spin yourself a pass, or flip yourself a pass.
  • Chin all receptions. Slow down, hold your seal, vary your rhythm. Be quick without hurrying.
  • The pass will lead you to a shot if you have angles. If played behind, quarter turn on passes to your shoulder.
  • If played behind and the pass is at your face, chin the ball and look to the middle for diver or double team
  • GET YOUR EYES ON THE TARGET
  • Be low and wide on catch, be lower and WIDER on your move. Heel to toe on your move.
  • Try to get to the front of the rim on your middle move.

 

GUIDELINES

  1. All lay-ups must be clean to be a make
  2. Put back all misses but they do not count as makes.
  3. Use free throw swish rules in counting your free throws.

Swish = +1 Make Hitting Rim = 0 Miss = -1

  1. 4. If you have trouble with a move, break it down and spend extra time on just that move e.g. REPETITIONS TO AD NAUSEAM
  2. 5. BE A SKILL PLAYER NOT A DRILL PLAYER.
  3. 6. The technique and proper and quick execution at games speeds is what we care about.
  4. 7. Periodically check your heart rate with a ten second count and multiply by six.

220 – Age = Maximum Heart Rate Get to 90% of maximum heart rate e.g. 180+

HUTCH’S POST WORKOUT

YOU WILL WANT TO DO EXTRA WORK ON YOUR GO TO MOVE OUTSIDE OF HUTCH’S WORKOUT

MAKE FIVE IN A ROW; PUTBACKS COUNT

  • Player will shoot five jump shots from the free throw line or either of the baseline step out areas.
  • If he makes the shot the ball can hit the floor, but if he misses it he must rebound the ball before it hits the floor.
  • The putback must be clean to count as a make.
  • If you miss and the ball hits the floor the player must start over from the beginning.
  • Do this workout from all three areas once a day. Add the shot fake if you want extra work or just mix it in randomly.

  1. a. Imaginary defense
  2. b. Moving without the ball
  3. c. Break package sprints

YOU CAN’T DO ALL THE DRILLS EACH DAY BUT YOU CAN DO ALL THE SKILLS
