Vance Walberg, Sacramento Kings assistant coach and creator of the innovative dribble drive attack offense, presents a shooting drill that mimics an action commonly seen in the dribble drive. Athletes will use an attack dribble, jump stop and also practice taking a kick-up 3-pointer.
Drill Summary: Set up with a line of players in the corner and a line of players at the lane line extended. The players at the lane line extended start with the ball. To begin, the player at the front of the line with balls takes an attack dribble forward and to the right, then jump stops in the “drop box.” Meanwhile, the player at the front of the line in the corner performs a kick-up, receives a pass from the player who jump stopped, then shoots a 3-pointer. Make sure players switch lines after every rep, and do the drill on both sides of the court.
Keys to the Drill:
1) Jump stop into the “drop box.”
2) Players in the corner must be patient.
4) Get somewhere with your dribble.

Although known as a basketball innovator with his Dribble Drive Attack Offense, Vance Walberg shows a couple of time-tested and proven drills that many coaches will recognize in this edition of the newsletter. However, with the Scramble Drill, Coach Walberg shows that it truly is the “little things” – the concepts and details – that lead to success of the Dribble Drive or any offense.
Player Movements: This drill has commonly been called 11-Man Break, and is a continuous 3-on-2 drill that begins with 3 offensive players attacking 2 defenders. When the shot is taken by the offense, the rebound is up for grabs by any of the 5 players. The player that secures the rebound will make an outlet pass to the first player in the outlet line on his side and the drill continues.
Teaching Points: Watch how Coach Walberg incorporates principles of his Dribble Drive Attack Offense by emphasizing where players should spot up, move to on penetration, and run lanes with proper spacing.

Player Movements: The drill begins with a 2-on-1 with a defender chasing. The roles again reverse as the drill goes back 2-on-2.
Drill Tips: Encourage competition and maximum effort throughout this aggressive drill.
