Videos Hide Videos Show Videos
At the University of North Florida, head coach Matt Driscoll has developed a reputation for playing fast and with tempo. His teams have won three Atlantic Sun championships (2015, 2016, 2020) and Driscoll was named conference Coach of the Year in each of those three seasons. In this video, Coach Driscoll offers a variety of drills to speed up your offense.
One of the other key parts of this video is Driscoll’s press break. The Ospreys actually warm up with two drills that work on breaking a press. The Scrape Drill is done without a defense and works on making certain reads. The second drill is a two-guard press break that focuses on making quick decisions when the first option of the press break is taken away.
You will also see a shooting drill that works on jump shots from different angles and three-pointers in the Red Zone shooting drill. Players get a ton of shots as they prepare for practice.
The heat turns up as players go 1-on-1 in the next part of practice. The Four-Second drill starts with a ball on a chair at the top of the key. On the whistle, an offensive player grabs the ball, reverse pivots, and the live 1-on-1 begins.
Next are a series of 3-on-0 and 3-on-3 drills that focus on transition offense. Laker 3-on-0 and Heat 3-on-3 work on passing, catching, and finishing at full speed. Full Court Build Up gets players moving as they go from 2-on-1 to 5-on-5. The Rinse Drill works on different press and trap scenarios. These are great drills for working on the transition offense as well as transition defense.
If you are looking to speed up your offense and style of play, Coach Driscoll is one of the most knowledgeable college coaches in the country. His live practice examples and guidance can help any coach instill intensity and an up-tempo style of play.
