Game Speed Ball Control Drills
on August 3, 2012
Just for reference, I am a college head coach at a small NCAA DIII school with 8 years at the college level coaching experience. With that in mind, here's my two cents: True, it offers a lot of drills, and also true that Anne's team would whoop mine head-to-head. BUT, I was disappointed in this video. It didn't offer anything "new-to-me," plus a large portion of the drills are partner drills to which I am philosophically opposed because even IF you can make a partner drill "game speed," it's not going to be "game like." How often do you pass the ball directly to the person who sent you the ball in a straight line? We try and rep angles and avoid straight-line peppering. So, this one didn't work for me. I MUCH prefer my dvds from Bond Shymansky, and I really like "Progressive Ball Controll Drills" by Chris Gravel (which offers far fewer drills, but has an interesting strategy for getting players to think.) I'm in the minority, though, as everybody else seems to love this one!
