Basketball Practice Drills with Jamion Christian
Let George Washington University head men’s basketball coach Jamion Christian show you his Mayhem style of play in this instructional basketball practice drills DVD. Christian has developed his style of play over his career which has included stops at Siena and Mount St. Mary’s. Mayhem helped Christian win two NEC titles and a coach of the year award while at Mount St. Mary’s. Now, get an inside look at how the system is taught.
Coach Christian opens up the practice doors for a look inside the basketball practice drills and full court drills that help him install Mayhem. You will see five different drill series featuring both full and half court drills. Watch as Coach Christian moves his players quickly from drill to drill and pushes them to take coaching on the run.
Defensively, Coach Christian uses several different 4-on-4 drills to teach and install the Mayhem full court press. The drills focus on the fundamental skills used in pressure defense – trapping, intercepting passes, and converting after a turnover. You will see a pressing gauntlet where players trap in the front court and again at half court.
Basketball Practice Drills for Defense & More
Other basketball practice drills work on help defense in the half-court man-to-man. Players learn to react quickly and stop penetration. When the ball is driven to the baseline or into the middle, players respond accordingly and cut off any and all penetration.
On offense, Coach Christian uses a variety of individual drills before getting into 4-on-4 and 5-on-4 situations. Guards and post players are separated to work on ball handling, finishing moves, and shooting. Christian puts it all together in running a 5-on-4 secondary break drill where the offense runs the secondary break and then goes right into its pick and roll offense. These drills are great for improving your team’s ball handling and shooting in transition. These skills are critical in the Mayhem system.
Coach Christian also shares multiple drills that will help your players improve their agility, speed, and hand-eye coordination. All of these are valuable tools to have for players who wish to succeed at any level of basketball.
