Now you can develop a pre-practice and practice routine that challenges and develops players in different ways. VanDerveer uses a variety of offensive and defensive drills that focus on ball handling, shooting, dribbling, offensive moves, passing, closing out, guard development, and post player development. With the help of her lead assistant coach, Coach VanDerveer splits her drills into perimeter and post-player development, and details each drill. Together with on-court demonstrations, you will learn from two of the best coaches college basketball has to offer.
All of Coach VanDerveer's practices start with ball-handling drills. The "Cone Drill" gets players working on individual attacking moves from various spots on the floor. Using cones, chairs, pads and other equipment, players are trained in game situations. The "Jab and Sweep" series teaches players to catch the ball on the perimeter and then attack the defender. 7-5-3-1 and 5-4-3 are great conditioning drills that also allow players to get shots up and then move into a 1-on-1 with a fresh defender. Players are taught how to use the down screens and various reads. The "Stride and Burst Drill" is great for getting players to understand and use change of speeds.
One of Coach VanDerveer's favorite post drills is the "Mikan Circle," which can be used with five or six players working on hook shots. It also has a cardio element to it. "Mirror Passing" and "Mikan Quick Catch" are great for developing the post player's ability to receive the ball.
Give your players the opportunity to be the best they can be. With over 700 career wins and two NCAA championships under her belt, Coach VanDerveer can help you take your players to the next level. Your program will greatly improve from her individual and team concept drills.

This is a new DVD but pretty much same drills from her other collection of DVDs. The ball handling phase is new, along with the jab series. But everything else is repeating what she has done in previous DVD sets.
I differ with the previous reviewer. I found the video helpful. I put a different twist on it and am utilizing the drills in my offseason program and I have seen improvement in my players. I coach middle school
Not much to the video. Coach did not even know the drills and states that really one of her assistant coaches does these drills with the team.
I found nothing that I would add to what my teams currently do.
