Drive & Kick Offense 1 on 1 Skill Development for the 4-Out
St. Louis head coach Travis Ford has rebuilt the Billikens’ program focusing on the development of his players’ individual skills. Ford’s 2019 team won the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament and advanced to the NCAA tournament. They got there following the tough, hard-working culture instilled by Ford. In this Drive & Kick Offense video, he shares a number of 1-on-1 moves and drills designed to help players improve their dribbling skills and their ability to beat defenders off the dribble.
Drive & Kick Offense Warmup Drills
From the 4-Out Drive and Kick set up, Ford gets his athletes warmed up with a drive and kick drill. The drill is designed to teach players how to play high and wide around the 3-point line. When a player drives to the basket, his teammates learn how to rotate properly. Players become accustomed to being shot-ready while learning to play fast.
1 on 1 Drills
All players need to be able to handle the ball. Ford takes his players through a series of ball handling drills that work on moves such as inside-out, hesitation, and the between the legs crossover. As the players execute each move, they learn to over-exaggerate their actions and attack the defender. Players also learn how to deal with contact, staying balanced, and attacking the rim.
1 on 1 Ball Spins
In this segment of the Drive & Kick Offense , players work on catching the ball in a triple threat position and pivoting. The jab step is incorporated here and players learn to use that jab while keeping their eyes on the defender. Players in a shot-ready position learn to use a shot fake and Coach Ford demonstrates a shot fake crossover to beat a defender. The circle rip through is also taught as this move gives players an advantage in attacking the rim.
Quick Decision 1 on 1
Coach Ford’s final segment puts all of the drills to use in more game-like situations. Players use the moves they have been taught – catch and shoot, shot fake, or circle rip through – in the open court and half court. Players must make quick decisions on which move to use.
Throughout his career, Coach Ford has developed a number of very talented college players. The drills used in this video are the same Coach Ford has used through the years and they can help your players become better basketball players within your offense. Rent this Drive & Kick Offense DVD today.
