Creator of the Innovative Dribble Drive Attack Offense, Vance Walberg, believes that no matter what offense you are running, you have to be able to make lay-ups, and that sound fundamentals must be emphasized. Here you will see a segment from Coach Walberg’s “Regular Lay-ups” series with constant emphasis on “the little things” that will help you win.
Athlete Movements: Coach Walberg’s Regular Lay-Ups is a two line lay-up series that starts with the regular lay-up. The player that gets the rebound will stop, pivot and distribute the ball to the next shooter with an overhead pass.
Teaching Points: Watch as Coach Walberg sets up how he wants the drill run with attention to details that make players focus on fundamentals.

Don Showalter has been one of the most successful coaches in his profession and always creates a defensive minded team. If you’re looking for drills to create that mindset, Coach Showalter gives you two drills in the following clip that will do just that. In the first drill, Coach uses a simple two line passing drill in the full-court starting at the three-point line. The second drill is a basic two line fast break drill.
Position and Fundamental Footwork Drills
Player Movements: In the first drill, players execute a good, solid chest pass and then sprint to the corner of the baseline to execute the proper defensive stance and slide. In the second drill, the rebounder outlets the ball and sprints the length of the court to receive a pass for an outlet. The scorer now becomes a full-court defender in a one on one situation.
Drill Essentials: Focus on building the proper fundamentals in guarding within the full court, while gaining a mindset for a full court pressure defensive team.
1) Proper Defensive Stance and Slide
2) Good, Solid Passing
4) Head Up
5) Active Hands
