Open Practice: Team Practice Drills

featuring Mike Krzyzewski, Duke University Head Coach; 2015 NCAA Champions;
distinguished member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (2001);
5x NCAA Champions, over 1,000 wins - most wins by an NCAA college coach; USA Basketball Head Coach, 2014 Gold Medal FIBA World Basketball Cup, 5 gold medals in international competition

It takes time to get a team to work together as a unit. Sit in on a mash-up of Duke basketball practice sessions from 2005-2007 as Mike Krzyzewski opens his practice doors to show you the secrets to team building and how he teaches athletes to play in the full court and half court. Using a variety of shell-based drills, Coach K demonstrates how he teaches his philosophies and principles on the offensive and defensive ends of the court.

Right from the start, Coach K sets the tone by building fundamentals with several passing drills. Using 3v3 play, Coach K teaches how to aggressively trap and pressure the ball handler in the back court and create a help situation if the ball handler is able to break out of the full court trap. In a 4 man V-Cut series, Coach K and his staff show how to get open in the front court while you look to attack the rim after breaking your opponent's pressure.

Once in the half court, Coach K guides his team through a series of offensive movements against a man-to-man defense. He teaches his offensive actions through dribble handoffs and screens off the ball so players know how to read the defense and attack every counter. Coach K shares an extensive ball screen segment using 3v3 and 2v2 situations. You'll see three different ways Duke defends on ball screens while also learning how Duke attacks coming off of a ball screen.

Finishing up his team practice drill session, Coach K uses 4v4 and 5v5 full-court situations to put everything together. He puts restrictions on the offense so they'll learn how to utilize every off-ball and on-ball action that was taught during their team practice session. By teaching his young team how to play off of one another in a practice setting, he develops the attacking philosophy that Duke has been known to use year after year.

These drills can be easily implemented into any team's philosophy in order to develop your players fundamentally.

This is an outstanding opportunity to learn how to teach basketball using team drills. Every drill is competitive and requires players to practice at game speed. Learn from the leader of the coaching profession as he develops individual players and molds them into a unified force.

Open Practice: Offensive Skill Development

distinguished member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (2001);
5x NCAA Champions, over 1,000 wins - most wins by an NCAA college coach; USA Basketball Head Coach, 2014 Gold Medal FIBA World Basketball Cup, 5 gold medals in international competition

with Chris Collins, Northwestern University Head Coach;
former Duke University Associate Head Coach; Assistant U.S. Olympic Men's Coach at the 2012 London and 2008 Beijing Games (gold medals)

and Steve Wojciechowski, Marquette University Head Coach,
former Duke Assistant Coach; NABC Defensive Player of the Year (1998)

Developing post and perimeter players is a critical aspect of today's college game and nobody's done it better than Coach Mike Krzyzewski and his staff. They have developed some of the nation's top players including Grant Hill, Kyrie Irving, Jabari Parker, Christian Laettner, Elton Brand, Shane Battier, and J.J. Redick, to name a few. In this compilation of skill development drills taken from coaching clinic sessions from 2005-2007, Coach K and former Duke assistants Steve Wojciechowski and Chris Collins share drills to improve ball handling, scoring and defensive play at both the perimeter and post positions.

Developing players who are "ball friendly" is a major emphasis in the skill development of all positions on the team. Players practice more than 10 different passing and ball handling drills, which are shared in this presentation. Coach Wojciechowski demonstrates the different layers of the "Box Ball Handling" drill, which simulates several of the movements and actions that a point guard must make in order to effectively run an offense. This drill will improve your ball handler's vision, teach them how to create space and show them how to run the offense against tough on-ball pressure by the defense.

The coaches also show you how they organize skill development into pre- and post-practice segments that they run for post and perimeter player groups throughout the season. Coach Collins leads perimeter players through drills that teach them to see the floor and make reads from the perimeter. The "2-on-2 Penetrate and Kick" drill trains players to space off different angles of dribble penetration to get free for open shots. Coach Wojciechowski breaks down post players' drills into "snapshots" of what they'll see in games. The posts run through 13 scoring moves they'll make in transition and through their half-court offense in pinch post actions and ball screens.

Individual defense is also emphasized in the "6-Point Contesting" drill. This is one of the coaches' favorite drills for training players in the different defensive scenarios they will encounter during the course of a possession. In unique variations of the drill that are specific to either perimeter or post players, defenders deny the perimeter and weak side flash cuts, help on dribble penetration, defend the low post, close out on skip passes, defend the ball and secure the rebound.

These drills, which show you how Duke has taken so many players to the next level, will make you reconsider how you develop your players' skills in practices. Grab a courtside seat inside famed Cameron Indoor Stadium and witness the work that goes into developing the skill required to operate within one of the nation's most successful programs.

Feel like you're sitting courtside at Duke University's Cameron Indoor Stadium as Mike Krzyzewski (along with current Marquette Coach Steve Wojciechowski and current Northwestern Head Coach Chris Collins) shows you how he builds the Duke defense from the ground up. Using a series of drills that create extreme ball pressure and help defense habits, Coach Krzyzewski shares strategies for making a big difference on game day.

These drills, taken directly from three years of coaching clinic sessions (2005-2007), incorporate fundamentals like stance and footwork into a variety of 1-on-1, 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 drills. Learn how Duke shapes individual skills into a high-intensity, full-court, man-to-man defense that has earned the team 11 Final Four appearances.

Coach Wojciechowski opens the presentation with the most basic defense skill, the stance. He demonstrates proper stance and the drills he uses to condition players on the defensive end. Coach Wojciechowski runs players through the Duke Zig-Zag series, which builds strength, stamina and footwork for an effective full-court pressure defense. Through multiple variations of the drill, players learn how to pressure the ball in the open court and influence it down a side of the floor. They also learn how to jam the passer on a dead ball and fake at the ball to contain the dribble. Unlike other zig-zag series, this one helps players master the skill of pressuring the ball without fouling.

Within a practice setting, Coach K and his staff progressively build from a 1v1 zig-zag series into a series of 2v2 and 3v3 drills that teach team defense. You'll learn how to defend and rotate on baseline and middle drives to the basket and how to build your players' defensive stamina.

Coach Krzyzewski shows how Duke builds its half-court defensive pressure with the "Driving Line" drill. Players learn how to control a dribbler on the wing forcing him baseline then the weak side defender has to learn when to help and when not to then being able to block out to finish the possession.Finally, you'll see the "2-Man Contesting" drill that Duke uses to teach players how to see the floor and move as the ball moves. This drill challenges players to deny their man the ball, apply on-ball pressure, transition between help defense and denial versus interchanges, and jump to help or take a charge against dribble penetration. This is a fantastic all-purpose drill to teach multiple defensive concepts.

These are the same drills Coach K uses during the season with his Duke players as well as with USA basketball teams to effectively build a pressure-style defense. Learn how to develop the fundamentals needed to pressure the ball and provide support to your teammates with great help and communication from one of the all-time greatest coaches in the game.

Open Practice: Shooting Drills

distinguished member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (2001);
5x NCAA Champions, over 1,000 wins - most wins by an NCAA college coach; USA Basketball Head Coach, 2014 Gold Medal FIBA World Basketball Cup, 5 gold medals in international competition

and Johnny Dawkins, Stanford University Head Coach;
former Duke Assistant Coach; 2x First Team All-American, 1986 Naismith National Player of the Year, All-Time Leading Scorer at Duke

Go inside the Duke program and witness several perimeter shooting drills that build accuracy, awareness, footwork, shooting endurance and range. Famed Duke Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski and former Duke assistants Johnny Dawkins and Chris Collins show you how to develop players who can score from anywhere on the floor. Using more than 20 shooting drills taken directly from coaching clinics held from 2005 to 2007, they show you why Duke consistently has some of the top shooters in NCAA history. From warm-up shooting to full-court shooting to different half-court situations, you'll get the drills you need to make your players a more dynamic offensive threat.

All three coaches take turns demonstrating various shooting-based drills they have used to develop perimeter talent. Perimeter player development is critical within the Duke program, as Coach Krzyzewski's offensive scheme is based on spreading the floor and attacking with a 3-point shooting arsenal. Individual, partner and three-player group drills are included.

Individual drills like the "Celtic 50" and "10 Spot Shooting" apply pressure to the shooter by either setting a predetermined goal for the number of makes or by not allowing a player to advance to the next spot until a set number is made. These two competitive shooting drills give players a benchmark to measure their improvement against throughout the season. The "Two Ball, Three Person Shooting" drill increases intensity with constant movement and a variety of shots that can be performed from any spot on the floor.

Transition and shooting endurance-based drills like "W" and "Shooting Suicide" require players to continuously sprint from half-court to a designated location for a catch and shoot attempt. Players must make a pre-determined number of baskets to advance or to have the running distance between shot attempts reduced.

"Ball Screen" shooting helps the ball handler identify which shot is available. You get a drill series to train players in the different ways they can use ball screens to score, including:

  • off of a refusal of the ball screen
  • off the acceptance of the ball screen
  • off a defender going under the screen
  • off splitting two defenders to get into the lane

Also demonstrated are "Catch and Face" drills for improving footwork and gaining offensive awareness by squaring up to the defense on the catch. These drills lead into several others that call for two- and three-man penetration and kick 3-point attempts, re-locations to maintain proper spacing, angle screening as well as down-screen shooting. Players learn how to space off every angle of dribble penetration to get them open and ready to score.

Improve your teams' ability to score at the rim with the "Finishing Moves" drill series that works on attacking the basket with various dribble moves and different ways to finish in the paint. Coach Collins discusses the need for guards to be able to shoot from various angles when close to the rim in order to prevent a blocked shot. He demonstrates several drills that put players in position to execute floaters/runners and using the body as a shield off of a baseline drive.

Open Practice: Offensive Playbook

Legendary basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski reaches into the archives for basketball practice film that shows you the in's and out's of Duke's potent offense. Using material from coaching clinics held in 2005, 2006 and 2007, Coach K introduces his man-to-man and zone offenses, along with several quick hitters in the half court and underneath the basket that have led to many open looks for his players. You'll learn how to run these plays against multiple styles of defense, and you'll also get the practice drills used to teach the spacing and tempo required in this offense.

Coach K begins by showing the primary and secondary break actions that are essential in the Duke offense. He details the various spots and actions each position executes in order to create angles against the defense. The Duke players run through a sequence of seven different transition drills to refine their set plays. The "Weave" series builds up your fast break attack with drills like the "3-Man Weave into 2-on-1." You'll also learn how to train your players to flow into their offense from transition with drills like "5-Man Weave into 5-on-0."

Here's an opportunity to observe numerous flexible set plays that Duke uses to attack half-court defenses. Coach Krzyzewski explains how he gets his team to flow into half court offense from transition for an up-tempo style of play that emphasizes spreading the floor with shooters and attacking with ball screens. Methods for producing multiple scoring options are demonstrated in the "Down and Through" plays to show you how you can get a shot for the player you want in crunch time.

Learn how to attack zone defenses with Duke's basic half-court "Gap and 3 Deep" offenses used to attack even or odd zones. In 5-on-5 play, you'll see how adjustments are made to their collection of quick hitters to score against either zone alignment. In addition, Coach Krzyzewski has players demonstrate the "Four and Cross" baseline inbounds play that can be used to score against zone defenses.

Stop letting your opponent's defense dictate the plays you run. With this offensive system, you'll learn set plays that can be used with great success against most half-court defenses. By eliminating the need to memorize new plays, this system also frees up practice time for other team needs.
