In this video, Coach Kruger explains those cornerstones to success and shows you how to build a program that inspires athletes to give their all to the program.

If you have ever heard the phrase “it’s not what you do but how you do it,” Coach Kruger proves it true with three transition drills. Kruger hones in on the details of passing, catching, running the floor, and finishing at the rim.

You have to have shooters to be great on offense. Coach Kruger shares nine shooting drills to develop the skill. These drills develop shooting prowess from all areas of the floor. Follow the Leader and Around the Horn demand perfect execution of shooting fundamentals. Each drill is constructed in a way to get your players to compete against either time, score, or an opponent. Players improve their shooting ability taking game-like shots in game-like situations.
Players get to apply their skills in 3-on-3 competition. The variety of drills help players read defenses and take advantage of their different skill sets to make plays. Coach Kruger will do things like add a shot clock or keep score to increase the pressure in these 3-on-3 drills.
