    Competitive Practice Drills for Defense

    Encouraging competition in practice translates into players that work harder while enjoying practice and players that improve. University of North Florida head coach Matt Driscoll has built the Ospreys into a winner using 12 competitive drills that he puts on display in this video. After serving as an assistant at Baylor and helping to revive the Bears’ program, Driscoll has done the same at North Florida taking the program to its first-ever NCAA tournament appearance at the end of the 2014-15 season.

    Using a variety of different situations, Coach Driscoll teaches the techniques and concepts needed to prepare for an upcoming season. The 12 drills he demonstrates will help build toughness, increase court awareness, and condition players. Competition is created by using a shot clock and naming a winner for each drill.

    1-on-1, 2-on-2, 3-on-3 Drills for Offense and Defense

    Coach Driscoll breaks down half-court offensive and defensive concepts with a series of 1-on-1, 2-on-2, and 3-on-3 drills. He tracks each team’s defensive efficiency rating (DER) to name a winner in each drill. Drills include:

    • Full-Court Advantage: Players must contain the ball in the full court and prevent splits that lead to easy scores.
    • Laker-to-Heat Drill: A temporary 3-on-2 situation is created challenging defenders to sprint back, get organized, and protect the rim.
    • Sprint Pick and Roll: This half-court drill focuses on concepts in the ball screen offense and defense.

    Transition Drills

    Successful teams are those that play great transition defense. Coach Driscoll presents four drills that work on playing defense in transition. The Build Up drill forces players to work in every disadvantage situation in a fast break. The 2-3 Transition to 11 Drill teaches players how to get back into a zone defense through their transition defense.

    Coach Driscoll shares three competitive rebounding drills that teach players to fight for rebounding position. You will hear how Coach Driscoll modifies rebounding drills to increase their difficulty as your players improve.

    For coaches looking to increase the energy in their gyms, this video offers up competitive practice drills that will motivate players at any level. Rent this Competitive Practice Drills for Defense DVD today.
