Drills that Translate into Winning Every Facet of the Game
If you are looking for new ideas for building complete basketball players, why not learn from one of the foremost high school coaches in the country? Pat Clatchey, head boys basketball coach at Mount St. Joseph HS (MD), has over 600 career wins, 23 league and tournament championships since 2003, and has developed over 40 Division I student-athletes.
In this video, Coach Clatchey shows you 13 drills designed to build a better basketball player. The drills focus on every part of the game including shooting, passing, rebounding, defense, and transition. Coach Clatchey also includes a segment on late-game situations. You will see a number of position-specific drills that will allow you to focus on the drills that meet the needs of your program.
Coach Clatchey shows you three team-based passing drills to help your players be more confident and make more accurate passes.
- Thomas Drill: emphasizes footwork and ripping the ball across the body
- Look Drill: challenges players to perform multiple tasks such as passing, catching, and dribbling on the run
- Jersey Drill: teaches players to instinctively look ahead on the fast break
Develop your team offense with four drills designed to teach players how to attack off the dribble, space the floor on penetration, pass under pressure, and score from different spots on the floor. The Chase drill is a full-court drill that teaches players to score at the rim when under pressure. It’s added benefit is in teaching players to never give up in transition defense.
Coach Clatchey shows you three drills to help your team on the defensive end. Dribble Containment is a drill designed to teach players how to closeout and stay in front of the ball against dribble penetration. Other drills help teach defenders how to fight over and under ball screens, understand help defense positioning, and how to shut down an opponent in a 1-on-1 situation.
Coach Clatchey puts it all together in three competitive drills. The 2-on-2 Transition Drill is a great way to evaluate your players on both sides of the ball. Tip Drill and 5-on-5 Off the Glass Transition are two drills that can help you control pace in your scrimmages.
The final segment of Coach Clatchey’s presentation helps your players prepare for late-game situations. The March Madness Drill works on end-of-game situations like playing with a lead or how to play when trailing late in a game. These drills from Coach Clatchey can benefit any coach at any level and can easily be implemented into your practices.
