Kentucky Basketball Coaches Association Presents: High School Basketball Drills & Essentials
Two veteran Kentucky high school basketball coaches and one college coach bring to you a plethora of ideas for planning practices, drills, and developing players in this video taken at the 2018 Kentucky Basketball Coaches Association clinic.
Coach Cooper is the head coach at Kentucky Wesleyan and is a two-time PAC Coach of the Year winner. Much of Cooper’s success can be attributed to his practice planning, which he discusses in his segment. You will see his Assumption Drill, which he uses at the start of practices to get players loose and mentally focused for the day.
Coach Cooper believes in teaching players to read appropriately. He puts players in a half-court setup and gets them as many reps as possible teaching players to read defenses while using different screening actions. He will use 5-on-0 and 5-on-5 to teach the motion offense and rounds out his practice with a free throw focus drill to ensure players can make both free throws in a late-game situation.
Coach Ruthsatz won state titles at Covington HS in 2014 and 2018. He highlights his typical practice routine beginning with the warmup. Ruthsatz then progresses through position specific breakdown drills, half- and full-court drills, and traditional shell drills. All the drills are competitive to make sure his teams play hard.
The Kings 1-on-1 Drill has players working continuously to produce a defensive stop. The 3-on-3 Full Court drill teaches players to play to the whistle teaching athletes to develop ball security and how restrictions can create defensive intensity. Finally, Coach Ruthsatz shows you how to alter the Shell Drill and he adds in a special play that he likes to use in crunch time.
Coach Murray is an assistant at Bowling Green HS and the former head coach at Monroe County HS where he won two state championships. Coach Murray presents some of his favorite practice drills and credits them with much of his success. The drills include those for developing ball handling skills, dribbling, rebounding, defense, shooting, and breaking the press.
He likes to start practices with some sort of ball handling drill and shares what he calls “7-Ball.” The drill works a variety of skills and finishes. It is the sort of drill that you will find in this well-crafted video by three excellent coaches. Rent this Kentucky Basketball Coaches Association Coaching DVD today.
