Dave Rose, 3x Mountain West Coach of the Year, shows you his fast paced practices that allow players to learn at game speed and conditions them while practicing. Recorded at live practices, this video set delivers an inside look at what makes BYU a strong and competitive program.
Each practice session shows how BYU breaks down game film and presents it to their players. Coach Rose works hard to structure his practice sessions so they mimic every game situation. You will see how Rose brings structure to a chaotic practice session so that his players can learn at a game-pace and figure out situations just as they would during a live game. He will also give you an inside look at how his staff develops a practice plan and strategy for improving and implementing new skills.
Coach Rose begins his practice in the film room where he teaches his players how they can use practice to get better instead of going through the motions. You will see how the BYU staff use positive plays to improve player confidence in order to give one constructive comment for a player to improve on. Rose and his staff will detail how they create opportunities for players to improve their decision-making skills in game situations for both offense and defense.
When the Cougars hit the practice floor, Coach Rose and his staff demonstrate how they incorporate skill development into their practice sessions. The squad is split into two groups for skill development. The post players are at one end of the floor working on drop-step moves, jump hooks, and short, turnaround jump shots. On the opposite end of the gym, the guard oriented players are working on finishing out of transition with transition three's, floaters, and 3-point shots from the corner.
In order to develop the pace that Coach Rose wants to play at, he spends a lot of time working on transition offense and defense. He demonstrates their Nugget drill building up from a 2-on-1 into a 5-on-5 full court drill. He also demonstrates a transition drill where his players are working on getting up and down the floor out of a rebound or free throw situation.
Coach Rose puts his players through various situations: end of game, late game, early game, and beginning of the game. His players must react to whatever the coaches or defense throws at the offense. Even though he works on his offense situations, Rose gets to work on his defensive situations as well.
Coach Rose invites you into a staff meeting covering what happened in practice the previous day and how they can improve by including new skills and drills based on the previous practice. You will get a detailed look at the reason why they incorporate certain drills and what skills they are focusing on for that practice.
On the court, the objective of this practice is to introduce pace of play offensive timing. The BYU staff uses various 5-on-5 and 4-on-4 full court drills as they continue to increase the pace of play. They spend time working on 5-on-0 half court sets where they teach their offensive system. Coach Rose demonstrates the 5-on-5 and 4-on-4 shell drill they use to teach different screening situations. In their Conversion Drill, Rose demonstrates how they get their point guard deep into the lane during their transition offense. He demonstrates how they play against a 2-3 zone and continue to run their offense with success.
Coach Rose demonstrates how they practice and play against out of bounds situations where they are defending each action with a bump-and-hold technique. Once in the half court setting, Rose outlines how they want to defend screens - especia
