Practice Philosophy & Drills
Spezia likes to start practice with players establishing goals for the practice. Players become more accountable and competitive as a result. To get the most out of available space and time, Spezia does drills where player are constantly moving. For example, the 3-Minute Drill has players work on fast break skills while another set of players is working on passing ability. The drill is also a conditioning drill.
In the 5-on-4 Shell Drill, players are put at a disadvantage to work on help and recover situations. This is great drill for building team defense and team rebounding skills. In addition to drill specifics, Coach Spezia also shows you how he builds his practice plan. You’ll see why a certain drill is run and, ultimately, how to run it. Spezia also likes to use various pieces of equipment like jump ropes, hurdles, heavy balls, and more.
