The Daddy Daughter/Father Son Basketball Workout is designed to build the foundation of your child's game. If your child learns to do the fundamental skills of basketball correctly from the beginning, they will have an advantage over children who do not learn the fundamentals the correct way from the start.
Teach your child to shoot the basketball correctly. A simple 10-15 minute workout will have your child shooting the basketball with perfect form.
Don't let the "Dribble Gap" develop in your child. Start your child on the path to ambidexterity at a young age.
Learn fundamental passing skills as well as how to pass the basketball against pressure.
Offensive moves are broken down so that beginners can easily learn the footwork and get a lot of repetitions in a short time.
Don't let game time be the only time your child brings the ball up the court. Full Court dribbling must be worked on in practice.
Coach Chris includes various fun games throughout the DVD to play with your child that will have them laughing and having fun - as well as getting better at basketball.
Perfect for K-6 basketball players or anyone who has never played before.
The Shooting Workout is a simple workout that will start with teaching your child how to catch the basketball correctly. The feet and hands must be in the proper position to be ready to shoot the basketball and if they are not you'll never be a good shooter.In just a 10-15 minute your child will learn to shoot the basketball correctly. Coach Chris keeps it simple.
The shooting workout will allow your child to get in about 200 shots in 15 minutes.
This is the form you will be able to teach your child right at home - even if you never played yourself!
Coach Chris reviews the drills for left handed shooters and any adjustments they should make. Even right handed shooters can do the shooting workout left handed if they want to develop their weak hand for shooting lay ups, passing, & dribbling.
Here a mistake is made during the workout. It's pointed out as it's likely your child will make the same mistake.
Lay-ups will be the most common shot any young player will take - so you need to learn to make them! Coach Chris provides various drills the will prepare your child to make lay ups in games.
No Panic Lay-ups is a fun drill (See Smile Above) that will get your child laughing and having a good time.
Is that basket low? Yes, and it should be if you want your child to learn to make weak hand and even strong hand lay-ups. Start them on a low basket so strength isn't an issue and they will perfect their form. Sooner than you think, they'll be doing it correctly on a 10 foot basket too.
After stationary dribbling, it's time to learn to go somewhere with the basketball. Coach Chris will break down all of the moves with the setup on how to most effectively practice the moves. In the pictures to the right you can see the orange circles set up to help learn how to make moves in straight lines. If your child learns to make moves in straight lines, they'll be able to beat defenders off the dribble. The drills are setup to force your child to make them in straight lines so they never learn to do them the wrong way in the first place!
All the Dribble Moves show the setup for each drill and the purpose of the way it's set up.
We didn't erase the basketball from this picture - there isn't one. When starting out learning the moves, it's important to get a feel and learn the footwork. This makes it easier for your child to learn and not have to worry about dribbling and losing the ball.
After some practice on just the movement and footwork we add the ball in. You can get in a lot of reps in a short time by just making the move by the defender (chair).
Coach Chris will cover the most basic passes young players need to learn. As you can see in the pictures below.
Here is the Break Down section that will show you what to watch for when doing the Chest Pass with your child.
Here is a tip that appears right in the middle of a drill. We freeze the action to point out the key points of the drill. Then the action resumes.
It's one thing to play catch, but eventually you are going to have to pass the basketball in a game against defense. This drill will have your child being strong with the ball, on balance, pivoting, and throwing accurate passes. It's also a lot of fun with the bag providing contact.
Coach Chris adds in some games to keep the fun going. The games are also useful to get the workout started, especially if maybe your child isn't "feeling it" on a certain day. These drills are guaranteed to put a smile on your child's face. On some days you can just play games if you'd like.
See the smile? This drill is meant to be fun and work on skills at the same time.
The Baseball/Softball game really teaches your child to change direction and be explosive. It's also a lot of fun!
FULL COURT DRIBBLING
Learning to bring the ball down the court is a vital skill for all players to learn. Even if you don't think your child won't be the point guard, who know what position they will play in junior high or high school? Having the ability to bring the ball down the court makes any player a valuable asset to any team - no matter what position they play. And if your child learns to handle the basketball in the full court, they will likely be one of the few players who can do so.
Some of the moves don't even require that your child be able to dribble well with their weak hand. Coach Chris has included some strong hand only moves so your child can start making moves in games right away
The drills are over and it's time to see what your child has. Coach Chris covers how to beat defenders all throughout the Full Court and Moves section.
Here is an example of what we are going for in the full court. Eyes up and pushing the ball out in front of the body.
Here is another example of where we freeze the action and point out important teaching points.
Explanations of why to do things are all throughout the DVD. It's important to tell your child Why to do something, not just tell them how and to do it.
We put in some Freeze Time clips to further break down some of the moves. We cut no corners when making DVDs at Hoops King.com. These will be really fun to watch!
Does Coach Chris have a twin? No but he does have the ability to freeze time to break down the game of basketball.
The Dribbling section covers the basic dribbling drills your child should do. There are hundreds of drills that can be done but Coach Chris gives you a handful that will challenge your child to get better with both hands.
The dribbling drills last between 30 seconds and 1 minute. You can keep track of your child's scores each time with the printable workout sheets on the DVD. Challenge your child to beat their previous score each time.
Coach Chris breaks down drills all throughout the DVD pointing out fine details that are usually not taught to players at any level. Learn these details early and advance to the head of the class!
Here is an example of the high level of teaching on the DVD. When doing the crossover you don't want your hand on top of the ball but on the side so you can quickly cross it to the other side. Many young children put their hand on top of the ball and plop it straight down. This makes the dribble much slower and less effective.
Proper body position is important in being the best player you can be. Kids of all ages can have bad form but if your child learns the proper form early and practices it, they'll advance ahead of other kids.
I absolutely love how you guys really ship product out faster than any company I've ever experienced in my life. Better than any other... period. I'll continue purchasing from you guys because of your superior customer service. Thanks. Rey V.
