FROM THE PRESIDENT Coaches,

November 2020

Our small schools are rolling into football playoff season, our big schools are in the midst of district play, and our winter sports are gearing up for their seasons. It’s a great time of year! For those coaches fortunate enough to be a part of a deep playoff run – enjoy the ride! We’ve learned this year that we can’t take these opportunities for granted, and we definitely need to savor these special moments. For those coaches whose seasons ended earlier than expected, remember to draw as many positives as possible. Win or lose – these are still special times for our kids, and they’ll carry special memories with them for the rest of their lives. We are thrilled to announce a partnership with the Dallas Cowboys (see Press Release on page 7). This $1 million partnership is the largest sponsorship in THSCA history and we are pleased to have the support of the Jones family and the Dallas Cowboys organization as we celebrate 100 years of UIL football in Texas. I want to encourage our winter sports’ coaches to dedicate a preseason scrimmage or a non-district game as an “Our Day To Shine” benefit to help raise money for the THSCA Benevolence Fund. You can easily find out more information as well as promotional materials on the THSCA website. (www.thsca.com/downloads) We have also set up a Venmo account for to be able to accept donations under the name @THSCAcoaches.

There are several important upcoming dates on the THSCA calendar:

12/1

Deadline for Football Nominations for Academic All-State

2/1

Deadline for Swimming/Diving Nominations for Academic All-State

2/6

Regional Meetings

2/22

THSCEF Leadership Summit - Arlington

Please take an active role as a member of our great association by bringing ideas, concerns, and issues to your THSCA regional leadership. Our association is only as strong as its membership. Remember that in these challenging times, your program provides many of our kids with the most positive experience they’re getting in their lives right now. Don’t underestimate the impact you and your fellow coaches have on your school and community! Good luck to our football teams as they make the hopeful march toward and through the state playoffs, and good luck to all of our winter sports’ teams as they begin their quest for a Texas State Championship!

Rodney Webb THSCA President

NOVEMBER 2020


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 11/3/2020 SAN MARCOS, TEXAS (November 3, 2020) – The Texas High School Coaches Association (THSCA) has partnered with The Dallas Cowboys and the University Interscholastic League (UIL) to celebrate 100 years of UIL Texas High School Football with an inkind gift of promotional assets valued at more than $1 million. The partnership will showcase the game of football and all its rich history from youth to the professional level through a variety of sponsorship and programming elements during the 2020 season. The Dallas Cowboys have a longstanding relationship with Texas high school football in which AT&T Stadium has been home to the UIL State Championships since 2010 and the Cowboys have hosted over 600 regular season and playoff high school games dating back to the early 1970’s at Texas Stadium. The 100th season of UIL football is a special opportunity to demonstrate the value behind these relationships and celebrate high school football across the State of Texas. “The Texas High School Coaches Association is very excited to announce our partnership with the Dallas Cowboys. It will be the largest sponsorship in THSCA history, and we are proud to join the Dallas Cowboys in the celebration of 100 Years of UIL Texas High School Football,” says Joe Martin, Executive Director of the THSCA. “We look forward to a long-term relationship with the Cowboys that will include tackling certification, The Rock Mentoring Program as well as new Leadership, Diversity and Inclusion opportunities for Texas high school coaches.” Through various community programs and initiatives, Texas high school football coaches will have the opportunity to take part in mentorships, character development and health and safety programs that will provide educational resources, curriculum and certifications to those who participate. The Dallas Cowboys will utilize a wide variety of digital and tangible assets including a video content series, community programming and events to promote and celebrate the 100th anniversary. The video series, scheduled to be released this week, will highlight the unique relationships between the Cowboys, their partners and Texas high school football over the years, while celebrating the game itself. “High school football in Texas represents passion, heritage and tradition,” said Charlotte Jones, Dallas Cowboys Executive Vice President and Chief Brand Officer. “It spans generations of families in communities that reach from Texarkana to El Paso, and the Dallas Cowboys are proud to join the Texas High School Coaches Association in recognizing the 100 years of high school football in Texas. We believe the importance and impact of the game has never been stronger as we move through these challenging times.” About the Texas High School Coaches Association The Texas High School Coaches' Association (THSCA) is the principal advocate and leadership organization for Texas high school coaches. The THSCA provides the highest quality representation, education and services to Texas high School coaches and affiliate members by enhancing the professionalism of coaches and the schools they represent. Our mission statement is simply this: To help and serve our Texas high school coaches as they work to help and serve our student athletes. "HELPING COACHES TO HELP KIDS." For more information on THSCA visit www.thsca.com About Gene and Jerry Jones Family Foundation In the area of community service, Gene and Jerry Jones Family Foundation’s mission is built upon an overall philosophy of helping those who don't have the strength, the resources or the means to help themselves. As a sports entity that has enjoyed unprecedented success and recognition for six decades, the Dallas Cowboys feel a very strong obligation to transfer that championship tradition and the magic that it creates toward the bigger purpose of making a difference in the community. More information about the Dallas Cowboys is available at www.dallascowboys.com.

Obituary

COACH EARL SCOTT

THSCA Hall of Honor Member

Earl Scott, 93, passed away peacefully at his residence in Round Rock, Texas on September 11, 2020. He was born in Smithville, Texas on November 23, 1926 and lived most of his adult life in the Rio Grande Valley, 18 years in Donna, and the next 40 years in Harlingen before moving to Round Rock in 2016. Joining the Navy at 17, he served in WWII, and was then recalled to active duty in the Korean War. He loved his country and was truly a member of "The Greatest Generation". Earl played football for Cameron (Okla.) College and Southwest Texas State before starting his coaching journey in Eagle Pass. One can only imagine coaching a team comprised of Veterans! So many great stories. It was at Southwest Texas State Teachers College that a blind date with the lovely Betty Blackburn turned into a beautiful love story and a lifetime marriage of 69 years that produced three children. After losing his beloved Betty in February, he still called himself the luckiest man alive and his love for her was evident even more so through his grief. We are so thankful that they are now reunited forever. Earl coached at Eagle Pass and Laredo Martin before moving to Donna with his young family in 1960. He loved the Valley and in addition to coaching, he also loved working his citrus orchards. While coaching in Donna, he compiled a 72-25-2 record from 1960-1968 before briefly coaching in Edinburg and then continuing with the produce and real estate industries. He is best known in the coaching world for the magical 1961 season, when he and Coach Bennie LaPrade led the Mighty Fighting Donna Redskins to the State Championship. Earl Scott was honored many times throughout his career, too many to list. However, three closest to his heart were Texas High School Coach of the Year-1961, Texas High School Coaches Association Hall of Honor-1962, and Southwest Texas State Hall of Honor-1980. Coach Scott won 101 of 152 games in his coaching career and developed some of the all-time greats of Valley football. He was very proud of helping fifty plus players get college scholarships in football. Earl Scott was a man of character, dignity, a strong sense of what is right, and a true gentleman. He had a sharp wit, was a scratch golfer, a sharp card player, an avid fisherman, an astute businessman, an amazing husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He was a teacher and mentor on and off the field, leaving his footprint on many lives. He and Betty loved to have FUN. They shared many travels with fabulous friends and made so many wonderful memories along the way. Their love would light up a room!

ALVIN "PEE WEE" "PETE" WOODS

Obituary

Alvin Woods was born on July 1, 1935 in Liberty Hill, Tx to Emmen Preston & Myrtle Freddie Woods. He was raised with his brother and two sisters in Burnet, Tx. He was reunited with his beloved wife, Patricia (Hobbs) Woods, in the arms of Jesus, on October 11, 2020. Alvin’s athletic success in Burnet led him to what was to become his second home and second family…Southwest Texas University. As a 4-year letter winner in football and having the opportunity to play basketball and baseball, he formed some of the greatest friendships and relationships which shaped his life. Over 60 years later, these friendships were still just as strong and the uniqueness of the “SWT Bunch” is something rarely seen and was cherished by “Pee Wee” and Patricia their entire lives. Alvin started his career as a coach, with head football coaching stops at Luling, Buda, Carrizo Springs, and his final stop as the first head coach at San Antonio Jay HS. Following his coaching career, Alvin “Pete” went to work selling athletic goods for C & S Sports in San Antonio. With Oshman Athletic Goods purchase of C & S two years later, he began a 30 + year career of serving the hundreds of coaches in south Texas who he considered not just his friends but his extended family. 10

FRESHMAN THSCA DIRECTOR – REGION 5

FROM THE DESK with

BELLVILLE HIGH SCHOOL

DEFENDING TRIPS OUT OF THE 4-3 DEFENSE

T

he 4-3 defense continues to be a sound defense even against the ever evolving spread offense. It's our belief in Bellville that the 4-3 gives us a consistent way to defend all the variations of the spread that we see throughout the season. Don’t get me wrong, we will give offenses different looks with a three-man front at times, but the 4-3 remains our base defense. It allows our defensive line to play defensive line, our linebackers to play linebacker, unlike the 3-4 which requires multiple players to learn to play multiple positions. For us, it is a matter of being consistent in our teachings and keeping things simple. We believe this gives us the best chance to win. When defending 3x1 sets, like any other formation, you must have more than one way to defend it. Each way to defend any formation will have its weaknesses, you must know those weaknesses and be able to teach those to your players. It is also important to not let the offense dictate how you will defend them. With the quality of teaching QB’s are getting today, if they know how you are defending them every down, you are going to get exploited if you do not have multiple ways to defend them. As we game plan each week, our goal is to have at least 2-3 coverages for each formation the offense is going to attack us with. Almost every week we are preparing for a 3x1 or trips set. As we game plan, we know we have to get a few questions answered before we come up with our plan.

1. What are the opponents top running plays? 2. What are the opponents top pass plays/concepts? 3. Why are they getting in trips? (run, pass, match-ups, etc) 4. How do we match up versus their personnel? Answering these questions will help us determine where to set our strength (this is one of the first topics of discussion every Sunday as we finalize our plan and discuss as a staff). Our strength will determine the alignment for everyone else as we still flip almost everyone on our defense. Generally, we set our strength to the trips to help out our Sam linebacker (to limit his conflict with RPO’s). Here is our base alignment and our Cover 3 to trips:

QUICK FACTS: ON COACH ROWE

THSCA Freshman Director Region 5 Grady Rowe – Athletic Director/Head Football Coach – Bellville High School since 2011. Coach Rowe has been married to his wife Jenn for over 24 years and they have two children, son Stone and daughter Tatum.

"Expect Victory" Responsibilities: •

Corner-outside leverage, at least 6 yds off #1, deep 1/3

SS – split #2 and #3, 3-5 yds off LOS. HOC rules – hot, outside, curl - flats

FS – 10-12 yds deep, cheated to trips side, deep 1/3

Sam – split #3, normal 4-5 yds depth, wall #3

Mike- head up on center (normal alignment), opens to trips looking for crossing routes, get depth

Will- normal alignment, back out, open up to #1 and get depth

Corner – man (inside leverage)

Again, this is our base coverage and what we will align in at all levels of Bellville Football. Our main areas of concern are three verticals on the trips side and our one on one match up to the single receiver. We work three verticals constantly from day one. Our kids know this is a weakness when we are playing Cover 3 a 3x1 set. Another way we adjust is get into Cover 2. Cover 2 is a coverage we teach to most formations and is really our base coverage in our 4-3. Our Cover 3 talked about above is an automatic check to trips. So, getting into Cover 2 is not a big deal or big adjustment for our kids.

NOVEMBER 2020

21


Responsibilities: •

Corners – both corners align 4-5 yds off with outside leverage, read #2

Sam – align 4-5 yds deep, head up to #3, collision any crossing route, hook/curl

SS/FS – align 10-12 yds deep outside hash (cover 2 hash rules apply), read #2

Mike - head up on center, open to trips looking for crossing routes, get depth to middle hole

Will – normal alignment, drop hook/curl

Our third way is to check to our Cover 5 adjustment. Our kids know Cover 5 as we teach it with our three-man front too. Cover 5 to us is Cover 3 to the trips and Cover 2 to the single (3 + 2 = 5), this is something kids understand and makes it easy to teach. We don’t talk ¼, ¼, ½’s because we have gotten away from running quarters.

Responsibilities : •

Corner - outside leverage, at least 6 yds off #1, deep 1/3

SS - 10-12 yds deep, cheated to trips side, deep 1/3

Sam - split #2 and #3, 3-5 yds off LOS. HOC rules – hot, outside, curl – flats

Mike - head up on center (normal alignment), opens to trips looking for crossing routes, get depth

Will – normal alignment, drop hook/curl

FS – align 10-12 yds deep outside hash (cover 2 hash rules apply), deep ½

Corner – align 4-5 yds deep, outside leverage, collision and sink 10-12 look for back out to flat

I firmly believe that you can’t be aggressive and confused at the same time. So, we teach just a few concepts and rep them over and over. We must make sure our kids understand the strength and weaknesses to each adjustment and coverage. We teach these concepts in both our four-man and three-man front. We must be simple and not throw too much at our kids because our kids are playing on both sides off the ball and are practicing both an offensive and defensive position. At the same time, we must be multiple versus today’s spread offenses. 22

Happy Thanksgiving Month Ladies! The month of gratitude is literally my favorite month out of the entire year. Yep, the 2020 season is OH. SO. WEIRD, and literally changes on the daily. But I’m convinced that practicing gratitude is the ONLY way to thrive and is of utmost importance to our mental health. How are you practicing gratitude this month? Here are few of mine: •

I’m so thankful for the games and competitions that HAVE happened, no matter how ugly they’ve been (and believe me, they haven’t been pretty).

I’m thankful that my family has found a little bit of “normalcy” and are not taking the things for granted that they have in the past. Renewing our minds and our focus.

I’m thankful that my children are learning that sometimes putting OTHERS before themselves, in the midst of a really long world pandemic, is worth it and they will be better people for it.

I’m thankful that we have a strong foundation here in Texas and we are finding a way in the midst of hard and loss to keep going.

I know things have been strange and different and we are all just going with the flow…but weren’t we, as coaches’ wives, made for this? To be flexible. To Pivot. To change directions and find a way. To take care of others while trying to maintain our own. I want to encourage you to keep doing just those things. BUT the biggest thing I’m seeing on our social media pages and “coaches’ wives pages” is the struggle for our marriages. As if the gift of TIME wasn’t something we already craved and fought for, now it seems even more difficult to find it. But again, find a way to see the good in all your situations. Fight for your marriage with grace and understanding, with the assumption that your spouse is GOOD and has good intentions. And make a gratitude list daily. List what you are thankful for. It WILL transform your mindset! Lastly, please join THSCWA if you haven’t already at www.thscwa.org and join us on our Facebook page for camaraderie and support! If your team is heading into playoff season, CONGRATULATIONS! That’s seems to be an even bigger accomplishment than usual in these crazy circumstances! Press on ladies! Stay with the fight! Keep up the good work! Jill Johnson, THSCWA President txcoacheswives@gmail.com

12th Annual Next Level Athlete Texas Top 100 a Huge Success By Greg Powers, Next Level Athlete

I

n January, Next Level Athlete concluded its Texas Top 100 Showcase held in association with Dave Campbell's Texas Football, attracting some of the finest up and coming prospects across the Lone Star State. The student-athletes in attendance were among a select few invited to participate in position-specific drills and one-on-one competitions. Every rep is filmed and a video highlight is produced for each athlete. These videos, along with a collegiate rating and a written evaluation, were posted into Next Level Athlete's college scouting system and made available to college coaches across the United States. The Next Level Athlete scouting platform was designed to allow colleges to evaluate a higher number of Texas prospects in less time. This, in effect, creates greater exposure and increased scholarship opportunities for Texas-based athletes. "One of the primary purposes of our events is to capture video of each athlete in a format that best demonstrates his overall athletic ability," said Justin Simons, Founder and CEO of Next Level Athlete. "By capturing this content in January, we are giving colleges a glimpse at the top athletes in Texas before the NCAAmandated Spring Evaluation Period." Currently, over 500 athletes that have participated in the Next Level Athlete are playing Division I football while countless others are furthering their playing careers and educations at lower divisions. "The NLA Camp is great for our players because they get to compete against good competition and they get great exposure," said DeSoto Head Coach Claude Mathis. "We love to compete and that’s the camp to get it at." Ask any member of the Next Level Athlete team, and they will tell you that the critical factor in the success of the organization is directly attributable to the support of the company by high school coaches across Texas.

Upcoming Software Will Be a Game Changer for TXHSFB Coaches Next Level Athlete's track record of working in coordination with the Texas high school football community powered a relationship with the Texas High School Coaches Association and a partnership with the Straight Line Recruiting initiative. Through its partnership, Next Level Athlete is set to launch its 'Prospect Portal' to high school coaches across the state.

NOVEMBER 2020

The 'Prospect Portal' is a FREE online tool designed to replace the traditional 'prospect sheet' method of maintaining and delivering athlete data to colleges. "We created the Prospect Portal for several reasons, but paramount among them was to provide high school coaches with a more secure way of delivering personal information on their athletes to colleges," Simons said. "Another benefit of the system will be that of putting greater control in the hands of the high school coach regarding what and when information is transmitted to colleges. We hope that the system will make it easier for high school coaches to send information to colleges and reduce the need for street-agents and trainers that currently make a living on filling this gap. It won't be easy, but if high school coaches get behind this system, we can truly eliminate a lot of the improprieties that exist in recruiting today." Email Info@NextLevelAthlete.com if you would like your program to be first in line to test and utilize the FREE Prospect Portal. Best Regards, Greg Powers

session you will be able to initiate a grass roots movement that cannot be drowned out. We have relied on our member coaches to react and band together in every past session and have been able to defeat legislation that would have been detrimental to the future of athletics in Texas. We may be your primary advocate circulating through the halls of the capital building, but you all are the collective voice that sways the legislators' decisions. You are the united front that educates the future generation of voters on civic responsibility and community service. Our Texas coaches have set the professional standard for coaches on a national level and that in turn has allowed for the THSCA to be a commanding voice within our Texas legislature.

Texas High School Coaches Association & the 87th Texas Legislative Session

Government Relations & Advocacy efforts As an association, we place intense focus on our continued work as the primary advocate for coaches in the state of Texas. This means we work year round, during and outside of state legislative sessions to ensure the highest possible standards for athletics and the coaching profession. Our THSCA lobbyists and our staff work together to connect with local and state legislators to secure a better understanding of the opportunities for improvement in high school coaching and both the educational and athletic arenas it serves. We have now shifted our government relations focus from voting to the start of the 87th Texas legislative session. We were impressed with the voter turnout for the November elections and need all of your help to maintain that strong voice in the 87th Legislative Session in January. We want to keep you as informed as possible, so that when you are called to act during this NOVEMBER 2020

Please read the information on the next several pages and familiarize yourself with our association's government relations work, our state's law-making process and the important work of our THSCA lobbyists.

DATES of INTEREST FOR THE 87TH SESSION: November 9, 2020: Bill prefiling begins January 12, 2021: 87th Legislature convenes at noon March 12, 2021: 60-day bill filing deadline May 31, 2021: Adjournment sine die June 20, 2021: Post-session 20-day deadline for Governor to sign or veto August 30, 2021: New Laws take Effect (91st day after adjournment) 33


What does a Lobbyist do?

STAKEHOLDERS

A lobbyist is a professional advocate who works to inform political decisions in a variety of ways and means on behalf of a person, organization or group. This includes persuading them to propose, pass, amend or defeat legislation as well as work to change existing laws and regulations. RESEARCH

Researching policy formulation and law-making in an effort to combine that knowledge with industry knowledge associated with the special interest groups they serve.

Lobbyists can attempt to sway the decisions of politicians by providing them with information they may not have access to in the form of graphs, charts, polls and statistical reports that are favorable to the interest groups they represent. Many times, a lobbyist will serve as a key component when drafting legislation. A lobbyist may testify at a public hearing in place of a special interest group, but they primarily advise representatives of those groups when it comes to offering public testimony and provide insight on the optimum time to call upon the associations members to raise their voices.

Working with special interest groups to identify common interests, help draft legislation and plan campaigns.

THE WORK OF A

LOBBYIST

LEGISLATIVE INSIGHT

Guiding special interest groups in the tracking of relevant legislation, advising opportunities to support or oppose a bill, and facilitating connections with legislators.

GOVERNMENT RELATIONS Regularly meeting with government officials on a state, local or national level as a professional advocate on behalf of a person, organization or group.

We expect the next session will be about the budget, the budget, the budget, & redistricting. Still, we do anticipate the homeschool participation bill will again be filed, and there will be a strong push for it. We will definitely have work to do there! - Hillco Partners -

Strategies For Alternative

Power Development By Stephen bryant

Performance course

T

he development of all parameters along the forcevelocity curve (absolute strength, strength speed, power, speed strength, speed) can lead to greater success in sport. Each parameter brings specific adaptations that can influence specific abilities. Athletes often spend the majority of their time on one end of the spectrum and by simply exposing them to the other side can result in improved performance. Olympic lift variations are well known for their ability to develop power and enhance triple extension. Considering Power = Force x Velocity, it is easy to see how certain 42

Olympic lift variations can have a huge impact on power development. However, it is a slow-cooked process to learn how to use these lifts properly. Athletes who have not been previously exposed to the lifts or have only been training for a brief amount of time, will need to be monitored accordingly to ensure they are performing the lifts properly. If not, serious injury can occur and ultimately lead to the athlete spending more time in the training room and less time on the field or court. Teaching proper progressions are crucial when it comes to being able to utilize Olympic-style lifts and take a good amount of training. While we slow-cook our athletes to develop proper technique, we can utilize other training variations. This allows us to produce the desired power and triple extension as we continue to teach proper mechanics for the Olympic lift variations. NOVEMBER 2020

volume to dysfunction. This is why we like to implement box jumps into our training as a first progression allowing us to control jumping speed, regulate eccentric stresses and assess landing position to ensure proper mechanics. Another benefit of adding in jump training is that, as with the medicine ball throws, jumping can be done in all planes of motion.

3. kettlebell swings

One method that can be used to develop power and triple extension is implementing medicine ball throws into your training program. Medicine balls are a great tool that coaches can use to safely develop power through the ankle, knee and hip. Since medicine balls are less technically demanding than Olympic lift variations, they can be utilized to develop power. On top of being safe and easy to integrate into a program, medicine balls can be used to develop power in all planes of motion (frontal, sagittal and transverse), something that Olympic lifts do not allow. This is extremely beneficial for sport when you consider that each plane of motion is utilized.

2. Box jumps

Another alternative way to train for power is to start incorporating certain aspects of jump training into your program. Jumping is one of the best ways to get athletes to complete the triple extension process. However, before you start telling your athletes to jump for inappropriate amounts of time or repetitions, we must make sure they are landing in the proper position. This means that they are not landing in a valgus knee position and adding NOVEMBER 2020

The final method we use to develop power for our athletes are kettlebell swings. Kettlebells can be used in many ways, but we utilize them predominately for developing powerful hip extension. Unlike medicine ball throws and jump training, kettlebell swings differ in the fact that they do not allow triple extension and instead emphasize powerful hip extension, which is a crucial movement in any sport. With kettlebell swings, we get an efficient way to produce power without the added stress that most Olympic lift variations bring to the table. As with any training method, kettlebell swings are not something you can just jump right into. Even though they are much easier to teach than Olympic lifts, they should be monitored to ensure proper technique is being used. We have discussed a few options that can be safe alternatives for power development while technique for Olympic lift variations are being slowly developed. Even though these are not the only methods that can be utilized, we feel these three variations give us a big bang for our buck when it comes to the athletes we train. We not only see great power improvements when we implement these specific exercises, but we also get the added benefit of reducing the chance of injury. Understanding the athlete’s training age and movement capabilities will dictate if Olympic lift variations can be used properly. If the athletes are not ready for Olympic lifts, implementing alternative exercises, like the ones listed above, can be beneficial while developing the Olympic lift process. 43

SET THE PACE FOR PRACTICE WITH A DEFENSIVE TEMPO STARTER

BY LONNY HUBBARD

Head Boys basketball coach - steele high school

I

n a perfect world, we all have players that bring energy to practice every single day. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for the major majority of us. Motivating our players to play the game hard and fly around with relentless effort is one of the most difficult tasks for us as coaches. We like to start our practices with tempo drills just to get our minds right. This is a quick six-minute drill to work on closeouts, d-slides, communication and to a lower extent the offensive jab step.

KNIGHT DRILL: Setup and Rotation: X X

Nine is ideal at a basket but of course the lines can have more. We use the entire gym and three baskets to get everyone focused 62

and warmed up in six minutes. You can rotate however you choose. We simply rotate defense to offense and offense to the defensive line to the left. It’s a defensive closeout drill but don’t let the offense practice being bad. This is a good time to practice an aggressive jab or drive step. This will in turn make the defense better. The focus of the drill is the closeout. Defensive players will toss the ball out to the offensive players to start each closeout. We like to have our players sprint out and chop their feet when they get within a few feet. They must also throw their hands in the air and yell “ball” or whatever your team chooses to communicate. They will repeat these actions in all three phases of the drill. (R-L-R and NOVEMBER 2020


L-R-L refer to the directions of the offensive jab steps)

• Defensive player push/slide steps defensively again as in first two minutes.

FIRST TWO MINUTES: R-L-R, PASS (not an actual pass…just the motion)

• The offensive player on the last jab to the right will take two dribbles in that direction and pick up the ball.

• Defensive player tosses ball out to offensive player and sprints out to closeout.

• Defensive player will play good positional defense on the two dribbles. Once the offensive player picks up the ball the defensive player will “belly-up” to the player. This is the term we use to crowd the offensive player since he/she no longer has a dribble. Defensive player will begin to yell “dead dead dead!” as he/she crowds the offensive player for five-second call.

• Offensive player catches ball and jab steps (right leg) right, left and right again. • Defensive player push/slide steps defensively in the proper direction. Returning in front of the offensive player after each jab step. • The offensive player on the last jab to the right will yell “pass” and motion as if he/she’s passing the ball to the right.

After the first minute, again, the drill shifts to the left side. The last minute will be L-R-L with the two dribbles left. Communication is needed here so players aren’t going opposite directions and run into each other. Players should be echoing the switch after the first minute. LAST TWO MINUTES: CATCH-AND-SHOOT

• The defensive player will jump to the pass when the offensive player yells “pass”.

• Defensive player tosses ball out to offensive player and sprints out to closeout.

After the first minute of the two-minute phase the offensive players will now jab step with their left legs L-R-L. Everything else is done the same and now players will pass as they jab left on the last jab. Players should be echoing the switch at the one-minute point.

• Offensive player catches ball and shoots in the air just past defender…not at basket.

SECOND TWO MINUTES: R-L-R TWO DRIBBLES • Defensive player tosses ball out to offensive player and sprints to closeout. • Offensive player catches ball and jab steps (right leg) right, left and right again. NOVEMBER 2020

• Defensive player challenges shot and then yells “shot!” • Defensive player then boxes out the offensive player. • Offensive player battles to get around the defender for 2-3 seconds. We love this drill to start practice It’s full of little things. The great John Wooden said it best:

“IT’S THE LITTLE DETAILS THAT ARE VITAL. LITTLE THINGS MAKE BIG THINGS HAPPEN.” JOHN WOODEN
