Multipurpose Practice Drills and Special Situations
John Pigatti is the head coach at South Suburban College where he has led a very successful junior college program. He has led his teams to three NJCAA Division II championship games. Much of Pigatti’s success can be traced back to what his players are taught in practice. In this video, Coach Pigatti shares a number of innovative drills that teach multiple concepts in a short period of time.
The presentation begins with Pigatti revealing some very interesting statistical data regarding the impact that rebounding and turnovers have on winning basketball games. He then jumps right into nine different drills to work on players’ individual skills.
Limiting turnovers in full-court and half-court situations starts with effective passing. Coach Pigatti introduces some of his favorite passing drills including his trademark Olympic Ball Passing scheme. He also teaches players how to break out of traps using a drill where players learn how to pivot and step through the trap.
Coach Pigatti teaches transition offense and the primary fast break using five-man weave drills. To help players respond better to full-court pressure, he uses something unique that he calls Plus One Scramble.
The presentation continues with two rebounding drills. One drill teaches out-of-box toughness and the other is used against teams that shoot a lot of three-pointers. Next is some discussion of late-clock out of bounds plays and then a demonstration of three different baseline plays and one sideline play with a number of options.
Coach Pigatti ends by sharing three keys for scoring opportunities under the basket, from the sideline, or at full court as the game clock winds down. Get plenty of work done in a short amount of time using Coach Pigatti’s strategies and drills.
