Learn proven techniques and drills to improve your team's focus, effort and competitiveness. Green Bay Head Coach Matt Bollant shows you how he builds the Phoenix offensive and defensive systems in a live practice setting.
Bollant's practice starts with a 5-0 offensive shell drill and several drills to teach players to cut, communicate, and play with poise on the offensive end and in their primary and secondary breaks.
He uses a rapid fire drill for practicing high percentage game shots out of the Phoenix offense. This is followed by full court 2-on-2, 3-on-3, and block-hold-release drills which emphasize offensive fundamentals in the half-court game and the primary and secondary break. These drills are a great way to help your players make mental transitions during games and to get your players' "brains flowing."
Teach your players how to be aggressive using full court "blood drills" to build an attack mentality in the open court. Pick up defensive fundamentals with a 3-on-3 Cut Throat Drill that emphasizes closing out low, communicating with teammates (offensively and defensively), being in a triple threat position, utilizing the jump stop, and making sure his players do not use a "butt ball" action.
The defensive emphasis continues as Bollant teaches "closeouts inside the V." He uses a 1-on-1 drill to demonstrate how to square up to a defender off the closeout. He puts an emphasis on teaching high hands, long and low first step, and making sure you don't open the gate. You'll also see a 4-on-3 passing drill to teach defenders how to communicate and pressure the ball while making your opponent think about their next pass.
The practice session ends with variations of 4-on-4 shell drill. Bollant takes you through his layers of shell to teach his players the cutting and screening action of their motion offense. He uses 4-on-4 and 5-on-5 shell to create a tough practice mentality and for game preparation on both the offensive and defensive end of the court. You will learn how to build solid defensive principles and pressure, how to create good help side defense and help the helper action, and how to move and think without the ball. Coach finishes up his practice with "3 Ways" Drill to put it all together.
Get practice ideas to get your players to think quicker and play faster.

This DVD was pretty good. Several concepts and drills that I liked. The 5-0 stuff is shown briefly, but not explained very well, and the rapid fire is also not explained very well. If you spend some time rewinding you can get the rotations of the drill down pretty good. My only other complaints would be that it is only one practice shown not 3 or 4 like the other all access DVDs, however the price works really well for what you get. All in all this is a good DVD and I believe it to be worth the money. It would have been better to have more than one practice.
