Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

Curl drill

2 runs up from the baseline, curls for a pass from 1 (jump stop or inside pivot), shoots, rebounds, and goes with the ball to the other line.

After passing to 2, 1 curls for pass from 4, shoots, rebounds, and switches lines with the ball. 4 is the next shooter, off a pass from 3.

- jab step, shot

Barry Brodzinski - always show your hands, step to the ball. Start with layups, get to the basket with no or one dribble, move back to 15-foot shots (behind the foul line), for 3-point shots, come wide, show your outside hand.

Frank Alloco - Box shooting - six players at each basket (two balls), keep score, use an inside pivot,
