What Are the Most Effective Ways to Plan Basketball Drills?

Post by vipluis on Tue Feb 01, 2011 1:42 pm

Even though basketball is known and loved worldwide, the United States holds its biggest fans. The youngsters who play admire and idolize their favorite professional players they see nightly on the TV and they hope to become professionals too one day. However, to become that good at basketball, you would have to not only have tons of talent, but you would also need plenty of dedication and lots of practice.

This means not only playing basketball, but also engaging in basketball drills regularly. The drills might have the entire team participating, or it might be one or two people, but the drills must be done if the proper skills are going to be gained. The drill techniques we're about to read about are great for developing those skills necessary to be great at the game of basketball.

If you want to plan the proper drills, for yourself or with other people, you need to first comprehend the importance of drills. There are too many players out there who think drills aren't important because they think they're developing all the skills they need in the games they play.

When players such as these aren't playing basketball, they will play with a few friends or they'll just practice their jump shots on their own. It's no question that these are more fun than going through planned drills, but that is part of the issue. Playing basketball only focuses on the scoring, while drills focus on the techniques it takes to make those scores. Everyone needs to practice the basic aspects of the game constantly, even if it's boring. If this isn't done, you will only make the same mistakes on a constant basis and that's when you'll find yourself remaining stagnant. One skill that drills need to concentrate in is making the basketball players able to go from offense to defense in a quick manner. Basketball is one of the quickest moving games so players must have a certain level of conditioning, they need to have the reflexes of a cat and they also must have a level of alertness that helps them prepare for the next play. Your team could have possession of the ball but you never know when that possession will be lost and your team must transition to defense. You can devise drills where players are divided into teams and are forced to quickly, and unexpectedly change positions when a whistle is blown. This drill will keep the team flexible and it will improve the way they communicate with their fellow team mates.

In basketball, rebounds are constantly occurring, so this is something that should be practiced in drills. Players must also realize that shots, whether it's them shooting or someone on the other team, might miss, so they need to be ready to snatch the ball up at any time. Players must be mentally and physically ready at all times for this reason. You can conduct rebounding drills by bouncing the ball of the wall or a backboard. Rebounding is one of the things that makes basketball unique, and so fast paced, and practicing this is a way to keep players up to speed with the rigorous demands of the sport.

In short, basketball drills are one of the most crucial ways that players can increase their skills, as well as build rapport with each other as a team. When you engage in drills on a regular basis, you will increase your conditioning and you will also become a better player overall. If you want to play drills that are effective, remember everything you just read.
