Legendary master teacher Jerry Petitgoue provides an in-depth look at the ideal 90-minute practice for any feeder program. The practice includes:
WARM-UP & EXERCISESThis organized and swift moving practice begins with players performing a dynamic warm-up that includes exercises that are great for improving your players stability and core strength.
Jumping into practice, Coach Petitgoue gets players into partner groups where he utilizes tennis balls to improve both dribbling and passing skills.
SHOOTINGPlayers are given an opportunity to check their form everyday with the "shot builder" shooting drill. Petitgoue intensifies the practice with jump-stop lay-ups and the 3-man-2-ball shooting drill, which improves a player's ability to shoot on the move.
BALL HANDLINGStaying with fundamentals, Petitgoue improves the all-important skill of passing with a variety of stationary drills and passing on the move drills, including the peripheral passing drill. Next players "circle up" for more ball-handling drills as players perform stationary dribbling drills and the 2-Line ball handling where they perform a variety of challenging dribble moves at game speed.
PRESS BREAKHandling full-court pressure defense has long been a problem for elementary and middle-school aged players. Petitgoue provides the solution to this problem by introducing an all-purpose 1-4 press breaker that can be effectively utilized versus both man-to-man and zone presses. The Vegas press break is also shown. This effective press breaker and be used against 2-2-1 and 1-3-1 zone trapping defenses.
FAST BREAKYoung players will not realize they are conditioning while they perform the 5-on-0 Fast Break Drill and the State Drill, which is not only competitive, but improves defensive transition and communication as well.
DEFENSEMoving to the defensive end of the floor, Petitgoue takes young players through the shell drill where he emphasizes jumping to the ball on every pass and pressuring the ball. His coaching points feature one pass and two pass away spacing, sink to the level of the ball to defend the lane on dribble penetration and post defense.
OFFENSEIn the last segment, Petitgoue introduces the five man open post offense and the three sets, Regular, Iowa and Go, that are executed out of it. This offense teaches players "how to play," and places all five players on the perimeter where they are encouraged to attack the basket.
Petitgoue ends his practice with the competitive free throw challenge, which is a fun drill that improves both free throw shooting and conditioning.

This is pretty good for who it's for. This DVD is really meant for a beginner coach who really doesn't have his/her hands around how to organize a practice or prepare a team. I think 5th through 8th grades are capable of handling slightly more advanced drills than some of these. Mr Petitgoue pretty much sticks to straight fundamentals, but in todays age for kids to truly get better, they will need skills beyond the basics. Either way, as for newer coaches, coaching youth, this is not a bad choice to get started.
