Videos Hide Videos Show Videos
Do your players have trouble breaking the press? Put your athletes through a number of advantage/disadvantage situations like University of North Florida head coach Matt Driscoll does. Driscoll is a three-time Atlantic Sun Conference Coach of the Year (2015, 2016, 2020) who is well known for his ability to improve individuals as players. In this practice session, you get to see what it’s like to run a session with intensity and how to make players and teams great.
One thing that can set a program apart from another is the analysis of film. Coach Driscoll begins the session with film study. He analyzes different clips in this session in an attempt to reinforce his team’s defensive principles. You will get to see how the film session works in conjunction with the practice to come.
The session then moves to the practice floor where the team begins with two warmup drills. Coach Driscoll has his team work the Scrape Drill where North Florida works on breaking a press in a 5-on-0 situation. Players work on certain reads and passes as they go full speed. These drills also demonstrate two press breaks that can be used against any defense.
Red Zone Shooting is another drill that gets players prepared for practice by working on jump shots from different angles and on three-pointers from different spots. Players get a ton of game-like shots in a short period of time.
The practice then shifts into higher gear with an emphasis on full court transition. The Transition Build Up drill leads to a full court 5-on-5 game scenario. Coach Driscoll emphasizes both transition offense and defense and works on breaking the press from a dead ball scenario.
From beginning to end, this video has value for any coach at any level. Coach Driscoll is one of the most respected coaches in the nation and his intensity and attention to detail makes this presentation a must-watch.
