Open Basketball Practice: Non-Contact and Contact Practice Drills
Villanova University head women’s basketball coach Harry Perretta shows you how to build daily practices that maximize time and lead to wins. With 25 winning seasons and over 750 career victories, Coach Perretta takes to the court to show you two types of practices. The first is a non-contact practice where the emphasis is on skill development and teaching. The second is a full-contact practice that is much more competitive.
Non-Contact Basketball Practice
The non-contact practice is used to develop skills, keep players fresh, and reduce injuries. This type of practice can be used the day before games during the regular season. The session begins with warm ups followed by position specific skill work.
Coach Perretta has all of his players working with players located at multiple baskets around the floor. There are ball handling drills, post drills, and passing drills that address pressure. As the practice continues, Coach Perretta has his players work on the fast break in a 5-on-0 situation. After that, it’s on to the press break and shooting drills.
Perretta is able to teach the Villanova Motion Offense in these non-contact sessions as well as address other half-court situations. Late-game and end-of-game scenarios are also on the list as Coach Perretta gets his players to perfect each piece of the puzzle.
Full Contact Basketball Practice
Full contact practices still begin with a warm-up, but the focus is on competing and scrimmaging. There are still times for breaking things down and teaching, but preparing players for game situations under pressure is the focus. After the warm-up, players get into the following:
- Fast break: Disadvantage drills in 3-on-2, 3-on-3, 5-on-3, and 5-on-5 situations
- Breaking/Applying pressure: These drills include zone offense and attacking after a made free throw
- End-of-game situations: Players are put in tough positions to force them to grind it out as practice comes to an end
Whether non-contact or full-contact, Coach Perretta’s presentation will inspire you to improve your practices so they become more efficient and effective. Rent this basketball practice DVD today.
