Ball Handling Perimeter Player Drills
Perimeter players must know how to advance the basketball safely and securely. Coach Coale starts with an effective ball handling progression that begins with simple stationary dribbling. Players progress to figure eights, wrap arounds, and even two-ball drills. The progression takes players through more complex drills in an effort to develop players that can effectively dribble the ball up the floor while envisioning the entire court.
Passing & Catching Basketball Drills
Two of the more overlooked fundamental skills in the game of basketball are passing and catching. Perimeter players must become familiar with a variety of passing options. The chest pass and bounce pass are just two of many. Coale shows how players should catch the basketball and immediately be in triple-threat position. Use of the feet and positioning are stressed here as Coach Coale emphasizes putting perimeter players in a catch-and-shoot position upon receiving a pass. A number of drills are presented including partner passing and shooting off of a number of different screens.

Coale stresses working at game speed so that players get in the habit of getting open and shooting from spots where they will shoot in games.
