Terry Layton has over 300 wins on the college, junior college, and high school levels. Coach Layton has also racked up 300 coaching wins at the international level. Here, Layton will show you the ‘Six Ball Shooting Drill’ which can act as a conditioning exercise for your perimeter players. The drill simulates sprinting the floor, catching in transition, and scoring.
Athlete Movements: This would mimic a scenario where the defense turns over the offense and they are shooting quickly in the conversion from defense to offense. There are three kinds of shots in the drill: 1) Catch and shoot mid-range 2) Catch midrange, shot fake, and pull up 3) Catch and shoot behind the 3-point line. There is also emphasis on the passers in this drill. The passers must deliver the ball right where the shooter wants it, inside the shooting pocket.
1) Run the floor hard
2) Catch & Be ready to shoot
3) Good passes
4) Work on shot fakes and scoring off the dribble

Huntington Prep (WV) has produced such stars as Andrew Wiggins (Top Recruit for the 2013-2014 College Season) and Gorgui Deng (Starting Center for the 2013 National Champion Louisville Cardinals). Head Coach, Rob Fulford, has his team perform the ‘Ironman Drill’ which Huntington Prep uses to promote toughness within its basketball program. It is made up of four components, three of which are on the defensive end of the floor.
Athlete Movements: The player in the drill first must contend with contact in the post. That player is pushed and bumped. Second, that same player must dive for a loose ball near the opposite sideline and simulate tipping it to a teammate. Next, that same player must simulate being in help defense inside the lane and taking a charge from a coach, who drives middle. Finally, that player caps off the drill by receiving a length of the floor pass and converting a layup or dunk down on the opposite end of the court. Not only does this drill teach toughness, but it also encourages enthusiasm among the team.
1) Accept that there is contact in basketball
2) Proper timing when diving for a loose ball
3) Make sure your shoulders are square and feet are set when taking a charge
4) Sprint the floor and time getting to a long pass for a layup

Creator of the Attack and React Offense, Andrew Grantz, shows you how attacking the rim creates gaps within a defense, and ultimately creates high percentage perimeter shots for your offense. Take these attacking drills and skills, and build your offensive mentality to attack the rim. Apply these attack and react concepts and provide your players with the open looks they desire.
Athlete Movements: Coach takes you through the basic breakdown of the 4 out 1 in attacking and reacting offense. Coach focuses on the inside players reaction to an aggressive drive to the basket in order to create space for a high percentage field goal. Coach moves to the next aspect of phase 1 by adding another perimeter player. Now, both the perimeter and inside player will react to the aggressive drive. The inside player reacts opposite and the perimeter player will lift for a proper angle pass for a perimeter shot.
Teaching Points: The perimeter player should aggressively drive into the paint and the inside player needs to react to go opposite of the drive in order to create space and high percentage field goals.
For the next phase, the guard will take an aggressive drive with the post player reacting opposite, while the closest perimeter player will lift for an effective angle to create a perimeter shot.

Being able to take foot quickness and ball handling, and implement it into eye hand coordination goes a long long way on the court each season. Myron Epps of the Aztec Basketball Academy takes those important skills and adds multiple ball skills to his foot quickness drills in order to maximize his players’ ability to control the ball in various situations. Turnovers play a huge role in the outcome of a game in addition to the ability to lead and control an offense. These ball handling agility workouts will help build that body control, while building ball skills needed.
Athlete Movements: Players begin with one small cone and perform 10 circles with the left hand and 10 circles with right hand. The player then adds an additional cone and performs a “figure 8″ ten times with each hand. Lastly, Epps will have the athletes go to the baseline and put together the between the legs cross over in full court and end with cross over wall touches.
Teaching Points: Focus on the between the legs cross over to build muscle memory.

VCU Strength & Conditioning Coach, Daniel Roose, has his players go through a ‘Jump Stop Series’ using a heavy ball. This series will engage the players’ abs and glutes to develop basketball specific strength.
Athlete Movements: Athletes will perform a series of three jump stops in one direction and three jump stops back in the same direction with a heavy ball. There are four different ball positions that can be used with this drill. The trainer will combine two of the four ball positions into the jump stop action.
Teaching Points: You can incorporate lateral movement into a jump stop with the same ball position movements.
