Hump Day Hoops # 2

I believe practice is where coaches have the biggest impact, because of this I have spend a lot of time thinking about how to best plan and run a practice. Over the years I have developed a practice plan template that incorporates all the areas I feel are essential to a great practice.

  1. Individual Skill Work – time with assistant coaches on identified areas for improvement
  2. Offensive + Defensive Breakdown Drills – 2 and 3 man drills that breakdown specified aspects of team systems ex: defending a ball screen.
  3. Team Systems Teaching Period –  executing team offense/defensive systems
  4. Transition Period – get up and down the court and score early.

Here is a template of a typical practice plan we use. Check it out.  Practice Plan
