Five-Star Basketball: Fastbreak Basketball - 10 Seconds of Freedom
with Bob Traina,
Five-Star Basketball Coach/Instructor Seminole (FL) HS, Head Boy's Coach
All fast breaks start with rebounding the basketball, and Traina begins by breaking down the outlet pass to the guard. Added to this, wings sprint the floor to the basket. The first option is the lay-up or jump shot, but wings are also in position to flow into secondary action. Traina breaks down the 2-on-1 break in drill form, using the pass to advance down the floor. The "look away" lay-up and the bounce pass option are demonstrated. The 3-on-2 break is another part of the break that must be mastered. Four options against two defenders are presented. The goal is to get a shot and a rebound before the defense can get set and matched up. The 5-man weave combo drill puts all parts together into one drill. This is an active, continuous drill that incorporates passing, running, shooting and decision-making. The second 5 seconds of this system is the secondary offense. Traina walks his players through the secondary offense first, explaining the role of each player and the many options available. Traina demonstrates the secondary action against man and zone defenses. In four trips up and down the floor, players can execute all four options available in secondary offense. This DVD presents more than a fastbreak - this system is the main attack down the floor to score in a hurry!
32 minutes. 2007.Five-Star Basketball: 15 Drills for Rebounding
with Mark Gaffney,
Five-Star Basketball Coach/Instructor and Lima (OH) Senior HS Head Coach
Coach Gaffney presents techniques and teaching points that will lead into drills for successful rebounding. To start, Gaffney demonstrates and drills the block out technique one-on-one. The back-to-back drill simulates the block out and is a competitive drill for both players. The purpose of the circle drill is to work on rebounding block out technique. One-on-one block out drill includes the close out, shot pressure, block out and the rebound. Moving to 2-on-2, the next drill puts a premium on blocking out and pursuing the ball. The cross block drill forces defenders to block out the player opposite them in the drill. The animal drill is worked on daily by Gaffney and develops desire, aggressiveness and a relentless attitude. Triangle rebounding drill is a 3-on-3 drill that uses two players in the corner and one player at the top of the key. It also progresses to 4-on-4 and 5-on-5. This drill is very game-like and can help establish excellent rebounding habits.
42 minutes. 2007.Five-Star Basketball: Building Team Man-to-Man Defense
with Danny Walck,
Five-Star Basketball Coach/Instructor and Warwick (PA) HS Head Coach
From the 'whole-part-whole' teaching model, Coach Walck breaks down his system for man-to-man defense. Balance, stance and bent knees are required to play this intense system of defense. Defensive slides create space in the direction of the pointed toe. This step/slide/slide concept is well known among successful coaches. Also covered is the retreat step, close out and the trace drill. The defensive four-slide drill incorporates all slides into a half court drill. To teach the ball-man relationship, Walck sets up the shell drill to show defenders how to move relative to the ball and their man. Deny & open is a drill that works on wing denial, defending the back cut and maintaining vision on the ball. The four- and five-man shell drill emphasizes and demonstrates all techniques taught by Walck. The advantage of the shell drill is that each player can be exposed to all different defensive situations. On this DVD, Coach Walck shows how to build a foundation for successful man-to-man defense!
