Highly respected international basketball consultant, Terry Layton, provides you with the Argentine Drill. Coach Layton introduces this full court warm-up drill which features passing, finishing in transition, running the floor at full speed, and rebounding.
Player Movements: The drill starts with a player under the basket with a ball. He or she will pass to each player going up the sideline. The key player in the drill will get the ball back each time until he or she gets a layup. All of the players, who caught and passed the ball along the sideline, follow up the floor to rebound misses. This conditions everyone to run the floor in transition and to assume a layup will not be made initially.
Drill Essentials: You can tweak this drill to work on both chest passes and bounce passes.
1) Solid, crisp passes
2) Passes should lead the player up the floor and to the basket (they shouldn’t have to come back for the ball)
3) Everyone has to run the floor to rebound

Discover cone drills that help create a 1 on 1, 2 on 2, 2 on 2 give and go, and 3 on 3 defensive situation featuring Don Showalter, 5x Gold Medalist coach for USA Basketball. These drills display the proper gapping of the ball to shut down gaps, and also create serious ball pressure. Using this effective series develops an intense defensive mindset while getting multiple reps in various situations.
Player Movements: Coach uses six players building from a 1 on 1 to 2 on 2 to 3 on 3 situation, while using four cones. Two cones are placed on the left wing 2 feet behind the three point line and then two more are placed on the opposite side so they run parallel. The offensive player dribbles on the outside of the cone, while the defender is on the inside. Each player must go around their cone to create a quick one on one situation.
Drill Essentials: Emphasize the importance of the first step in any defensive stance to avoid getting beat by the first attack dribble.
Drill Tips: Each drill can be tailored to what you are specifically working on each week depending on your opponent.

2009-10 Basketball Times Rookie Coach of the Year, Chris Mack, shows you a Run the Circuit Drill which focuses on a fast tempo running of the floor while adding a screen. This is a great option to use in transition to create a quick, effective shot and get the defense off balance.
Player Movements: Coach Mack talks about the the implementation of the “Step Up” screen in order to create mismatches and gaps in the defense. Coach also explains the role of the trailer when the step up screen is initiated by the “5″ player, or rim runner.
Drill Essentials: Anytime the trailer sees a screen coming in this situation, they need to go the opposite direction and create 15 to 17 feet of spacing.
Drill Tips: Make sure the post player who is setting the screen goes as deep as possible into the defense before cutting back and setting the step up screen.
Get a glimpse of John Danowski’s clearing system in this segment. The 2x NCAA Championship coach provides you with drills that focus on basics in a live clearing situation. Although appearing to be very basic, these drills teach numerous skills that can lead to winning at any level.
Player Movements: In the first part, the defense is breaking out or “banana cutting” to receive a pass. In the attack segment of this drill, the ball side attackman learns the skill of V cutting and pulling the defenseman AWAY from the area which the ball is coming toward. Move the X attack to the ball, as opposed to standing still and waiting for a pass. A quick pass attacking the backside completes the segment.
Drill Essentials: Ensure plenty of lacrosse balls are available for younger and lower skilled players. Using repetitions, muscle memory is created and lacrosse IQ is increased.
Drill Tips: Keys to observe are the goalies counting 3 seconds, the way the long sticks break out, watching the ball the whole way and the backpedal at the restraining line to “front” the ball. Also note the tempo of the goalie’s passes, which are hard low arc passes.
