WORK FROM HOME

Below are a series of Skill Workouts designed for our youth and high school players to complete at home or at the gym.  

  • First review the teaching video for each skill series to learn each drill. Pay close attention to the teaching points for each move/drill/skill, especially the footwork. Younger players should initially work with a parent or older sibling to help with the skills and ensure the player is doing each drill correctly. Then the player should be able to complete each workout on their own.

  • For younger players, if there are certain moves/drills/skills that are too difficult, skip them for now and come back to them when you feel ready (ex: the inside hand layup and euro step moves in the finishing series are not generally recommended for players not yet in high school). 

  • Work alone or work with a partner/rebounder.

  • If you have any questions on any of the concepts in the video, feel free to email Coach Monfre.

The currently available Skill Workouts are:

See if you can complete 33 total workouts (3 a week) from now through October 1. Use this document to track your progress.  The document also allows you to track your progress and goals for three of our shooting drills.

 

Stationary Dribbling Series

All Ages

Take your time to learn each drill using the teaching points in the video below. Then try completing the entire workout with minimal breaks.

Work to do each drill with your head up.  Keep your hand on the ball as much as possible in each drill to maximize your control.

Player Examples

 

Active Dribbling Series

All Ages

Take your time to learn each drill using the teaching points in the video below. Then try completing the entire workout with minimal breaks.

If you are doing this series outside, don't worry about exact court lengths. Just go back and forth to get a good amount of repetitions of each drill.

Player Examples

 

Form/Footwork Shooting Series

All Ages

The focus of this series is proper shot form and footwork.  Work to improve your shot form and add various ways to use your feet to shoot.

This workout provides 200 shots but is not meant to be a 'volume' shooting drill.  Shoot 'game like' shots at 'game speed' separately.

If you are able to do this workout with a rebounder it can be done much more efficiently.

Player Examples

 

Finishing Series

Intermediate (except Mikans, Running Layups, Jump Stops, Quick Bounce, and Stride Stops are all ages)

The focus of this series is developing a variety of ways to finish at the rim. 

Some of these finishes are difficult to master at a younger age, so work on the ones that you can grasp now.

Once you are ready for a full workout, add in dribble attack moves and catch and attack moves from our other series before every finishing rep.

Player Examples

 

Catch and Attack Series

Intermediate (except Catch and Go, Jab and Go, Snap and Go, Catch and Shoot, and Catch and Sit are all ages)

The focus of this series is developing a variety of ways to attack a closing out defender as you catch the ball. 

Some of these moves are difficult to master at a younger age, so work on the ones that you can grasp now.

Once you are ready for a full workout, add in different finishing moves from our Finishing Series on each catch and attack repetition.

Player Examples

 

Junior Partner Series

All Ages

This series is designed to provide a fun way to work on your skills with a teammate, sibling, or parent. 

Work together to improve these skills.  Encourage each other and help each other learn each drill.

There are some games you can compete against each other or try and beat your own previous high score.

 

Advanced Attack Moves

Advanced

The goal of this series is to be a tool for players to learn new attack moves

These moves rely on some counter-intuitive movements and deception. That means they are difficult to learn when you first try them.  However, the moves are also designed to be efficient. Not simple to learn...but once you learn they should be simple and efficient to do in games.

There is no structured repetition workout plan other than pick a move and put the time in to learn it.  Be willing to try it against live defense.

Shooting Drills

All Ages

The goal of these volume shooting drills is to get up as many shots as you can.

These drills are designed to allow you to track your progress and set goals for improvement.

I recommend first doing the Form/Footwork Shooting Series shown above before doing the drills listed below.

Some of the drills are designed to have you shoot under pressure.  Embrace the pressure so when it's your turn to shoot on a Friday night...you will be confident and ready.

Shooting with a partner or a rebounder can help get more shots up and can help you track your shots.

Youth players should use the youth spots identified below and high school players use the high school spots.

Shooting Spots for  Drills

Shooting   Drills

Gold 100 Drill

You will shoot 100 shots total in this drill

10 layups using the Mikan drill

10 form shots from Spot 1

10 jump shots from Spots 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8

10 Free Throws

Track your progress using the Work From Home tracker. Try to beat your last score, your all time high, and improve by the end of the summer.

3 Minute Challenge

Set a timer for 3 minutes. Try and use a rebounder for this challenge.  Use the following spots: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

Stay at a spot until you make 2 shots in a row, then move to the next spot. You can not shoot from any spot twice until you have completed all the spots.

 

See how many spots you can complete in 3 minutes.

Track your progress using the Work From Home tracker. Try to beat your last score, your all time high, and improve by the end of the summer.

Beat the Pro

Use Spots 2 and 3. Alternate shooting a shot from each spot. Use game speed and game-like shots with proper footwork.

Start at 0 and keep score as follows: -2 for a miss and +1 for a make.  If you get to 7 points you win, if you fall to -7 first you lose.

 

You can also put 1 minute on the clock and see what score you can get and then try and beat that score or compete against a teammate. 

5 Spot Game

You will shoot from these five spots: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Stay at each spot and make as many shots as you can until you miss 3 shots from that spot.

When you miss 3, move to the next spot.

Track and try to beat your current all-time high in this game using the Work From Home tracker.

9  in 1:30    Challenge

Set a timer for 1:30 

Without a rebounder, see if you can make one shot from all 8 spots and a free throw at the end before the 1:30 timer goes off.

If you get it, try to do it the shortest amount of time you can.

Pressure  Shooting Drill

Try this drill at any of the spots.

Try to get to 10 without missing 3 shots in a row.  When you miss 3 in a row, you have to start over.

Take PRIDE in making a shot when you currently have 2 misses at the spot.  The best shooters can shoot under pressure!
