Dribble Drive Offense

Nate Oats showcases some of the shooting and dribble drive offense drills he has used on a daily basis to prepare his teams to compete at a high level. Coach Oats turned the Bulls into a team that can beat anyone in the nation by utilizing a fast, relentless tempo on offense. This video will help you teach your own athletes how to use quick decision-making skills to play fast and keep opposing players on their toes.

Disadvantage Shooting

The ability to attack closeouts and defensive rotations is an essential skill players must develop to play at a high level. In 2 on 1 into 3 on 2 Shooting, offensive players are put into an advantage situation where they must read the defense and be shot ready. The defender must pick a player to closeout to and force them to react. Once players have a shooting rhythm, Coach Oats builds up to 3 on 2 Shooting and finally 4 on 3 Live, in which players can attack the over-closeout and hit the open player.

Transition Shooting

Oats demonstrates a series of transition decision making drills that will work on both offense and defense. In Cincinnati 1 v 1, offensive players learn to attack the basket and the defense with a full head of steam, getting downhill in seven seconds or less. In turn, the defense must learn to decide how to level out an offensive player that's trying to get downhill as fast as possible.

In the Cardinal Drill, your players will continue working on getting downhill on offense, but will be put into a 2 on 1 situation where they must make quick and easy passes that will lead to an easy bucket.

Blood Series

Coach Oats uses the Blood Series, which is one of his program's staples, to teach his players to read the defense while playing in game situations. These drills are tailored for the dribble drive motion offense and have helped some of the best programs to create scoring opportunities by learning to attack gaps and get into the paint.

In Slot Reads, athletes hunt for the paint and work to get an easy score or hit the lift players rotating behind them. Players create gaps and driving angles through multiple drives into the paint. In Corner Reads, players attack baseline and make reads off the baseline defender closing out to them. With post players lifting to the middle of the paint, drivers create multiple scoring opportunities using the drift pass, post dump pass, or kick out pass for an open 3-pointer. In Wing Reads, players get between the top two defenders and are able to create a lot of havoc once they get into the paint.

The drills provided in this video by Coach Oats will help you develop a complete offensive attacking team. Your players will enjoy getting downhill and in between gaps on offense as they hunt for the paint and read what the defense gives them!

Gap Man-to-Man Defense

One of the most strategic and insightful coaches in today's game, Nate Oats builds programs that compete at a high level season after season. With his gap man-to-man defense, his teams are able to force opponents into rushed, contested shots.

The drills included in this video will help your athletes develop a "being in the gap" mentality, which will produce a shutdown team defense to complement your offense.

Build Up Drills

The ability to "guard your yard" is a key element of the gap defense. Players start out by playing 1v1 defense in the open court and must get stops for their team to earn points. Defenders are dropped into lane line, where they must work to keep their opponent in front of them. This makes for a competitive start to practice and sets the tone early.

Adding more players to the drill creates a 3 on 3 full court setting. Players must shadow the ball when they're on it, and help defenders must be in the gaps to take away easy passes and deny transition 3-pointers.

Ball Screen Defense

Using multiple drills, Coach Oats builds a foundation of ball screen defense with 4v4 and 5v5 half court drills. These drills will help your players understand rotations and how to defend ball handlers who are hunting for the paint.

Oats shows how to keep things competitive by breaking out into 2v2 ball screen defense at various baskets. Players compete to get stops and scores and earn points for their team. At the end of the drill, the teams with the most points on offense and defense wins.

Scramble and Full Court Defense

In 5 on 4 Scramble, players start in the half court and must deny the offense from scoring easy buckets within 10 seconds. Defense transitions to offense with the rebound, which will allow you to instruct your athletes on both transition offense and defense. This drill helps players develop a shadowing mentality of keeping attackers in front of them and allowing teammates to get back into help position.

Rounding out this defensive-minded video, Coach Oats puts everything together in 5 on 5 continuous games. By playing to a small point target, players must focus on getting stops on every possession and pushing the ball in transition.

Coach Oats demonstrates how he creates a culture of competition in his practices. Every drill has a purpose, focus, and emphasis on getting stops and being in gaps to prevent easy buckets. If your team has traditionally struggled to grasp gap defense concepts, this video is your solution!
