Features & Benefits
  • Learn to create shooting drills tailored to your specific set plays and offense
  • Discover new drills that combine and develop essential basketball fundamentals
  • Develop more competitive players by incorporating intensity drills into your daily practice
with Kelvin Sampson,
Houston Rockets (NBA) Assistant Basketball Coach, former NCAA Head Coach

Recorded live at a youth basketball camp, Kelvin Sampson explains the drills he has used at the college and professional levels to improve his teams offensively and defensively. These drills will give you and your team a competitive edge come game time.

The best shooting drills result in your players practicing the shots they will get when running your offense.

In this segment, Coach Sampson installs eight simple set plays, and then explains how to create an appropriate shooting workout for each. These plays are run out of the following sets:

  • 1-4 High
  • Box
  • A-Set or Horns
  • Secondary Break
These drills show your players how to maintain proper spacing on offense while increasing conditioning and improving your players' ability to execute your set plays to perfection.

Coach Sampson believes the most critical fundamentals on defense are the "close out" and "help-the-helper." These two fundamentals should be drilled in some fashion every day.

After explaining the proper way to "close out," Sampson presents a quick and easy full-court drill that works your entire team at once. Beginning with a 2-on-2 shell defense, Sampson builds to a 3-on-3 shell that will help your team learn proper defensive stance, lateral movement technique, ball pressure, force sideline, stunt, bump and recover, denial of passing lanes and help the helper concepts.

Use attitude and intensity to improve your basketball team! Coach Sampson believes there is a huge difference between players that "play hard" and players who "compete."

With high intensity drills in practice, any coach at any level can teach their players to compete at a higher level.

Coach Sampson shows his 5-point rebounding drill which emphasizes rebounding on the offensive and defensive ends while working on block out techniques. Next up is the Speed Lay Up Drill which serves as a great conditioner and also teaches your players to handle the basketball when the pressure is on.

At the heart of Coach Sampson's philosophy lies the belief that coaches achieve what they emphasize. With both offense and defense, it is the job of the coach to identify the key fundamentals needed to be successful in any system. Implement Sampson's battle-tested philosophy and drills today!

The description of this video as written by Championship Productions is accurate except for the Intensity portion. There is no rebounding drill on this DVD but it does show a timed full-court layup drill. There really is not anything intense about this video other than Coach Sampson himself.
The offensive portion is 5-0 set plays and counter plays, not drills. The plays are appropriate for every level of basketball! The plays are followed by breakdown shooting from the designed spots of the play by using extra passers and basketballs to get everyone a shot at once. Frankly, I know some high school coaches who could benefit from this concept.
The skimpy defensive portion is limited to a closeout drill that is ideal for youth and the shell drill emphasizing help defense and not allowing penetration.
Overall, I like Coach Sampson's presentation of the material provided. It's a good video for what's included but does not live up to it's title. The rebounding drill should have been included w/such a lofty billing.

This DVD title is very misleading and does not work on drills for offense or intesity. There is one "basic" defense drill; however, this is more Coach Sampson teaching a play. I like the play but definately not worth the money. There are many other AWESOME DVD's from Championship Productions.

I own over 100 hundred videos from championship productions and this is the worst. This video shows several plays on offense, a closeout drill, a help drill, and one layup drill. The rebounding drill is not even on the video and there's only one little blurp about denying passes. Save your money. If this is the product that Championship Productions is going to produce, I'll shop elsewhere.
