Princeton Offense Drills: Practice Warm-Up and Breakdown Drills
In order to run the Princeton offense effectively, coach Lee DeForest presents this video which gives you all the Princeton Offense drills you need to teach and install the offense in your program. Coach DeForest shows you everything from basic warmup drills to teaching the proper reads in 3-on-0 and 4-on-0 drills. Everything in the video comes from time spent researching Hall of Fame coaches, teams that run the Princeton offense, and Coach DeForest’s own experience in the system.
Coach DeForest helps you begin thinking about developing a drill book, preparing for an upcoming season, and how to analyze players’ skill levels. In planning practices, Coach DeForest helps you understand that there is more to a quality practice than just the Princeton Offense drills selected. Learn how to get the most from each session. You will also get ideas on how to develop a practice culture that helps players stay motivated and work their hardest.
Individual Warmup Drills
Coach DeForest starts practice with a drill series designed to develop the fundamentals necessary to run the Princeton offense. Using both whiteboard lecture and on-court demonstrations, you will see drill ideas for improving ball handling, footwork, and finishing at the rim. Coach DeForest puts players through the drill series – three stations – in just nine minutes.
Team Warmup Drills
Coach DeForest moves into the team drills which demand players to be at their highest levels of focus and energy. Players learn to build communication skills in drills like Star Passing where they must execute flawless passes and footwork. The Five-Man Weave and the Laker Drill will teach players how to pass and finish at the rim at high speeds while running the entire court.
Ball Toughness Drills
Coach DeForest includes two “ball toughness” drills that work on skills like pivoting and scoring while under pressure. The 12-Second drill helps players with their passing and dribbling against physical defenders. The 3-on-3 drill is extremely intense as players compete to get open on the perimeter.
Offensive Breakdown Drills
An emphasis is placed upon practicing shots that would be made in games. Coach DeForest demonstrates four drills to break down sets in the Princeton offense. Two drills teach the Over and Away screens that offer up to 15 options for scoring out of the Point Series. You will also see how to score with different cuts in the Chin Series and how to improve the execution of the dribble-at. All of these drills simplify complex scoring actions so they become second nature to your players.
