There are few coaches who can claim 28 state championships at any level, but the legendary Bob Hurley Sr. belongs in that exclusive club. In this jam-packed video, Coach Hurley dives deep into his coaching repertoire to bring you a complete guide to offensive development. He includes many of his favorite drills as well as some tips and tricks to improve players' individual skills with the end goal of helping your team score more points.
Building a consistent offensive player begins with how they warm-up. Some of the best players in basketball spend 1-2 hours preparing for a game. Coach Hurley demonstrates several drills including Majerus Ball Handling Drill and Phil Martelli Shooting where players go through game reps/shots to develop their ball handling in the open court. By preparing to play perfectly, players are put into positions where they get outside their comfort zone so they'll be ready to perform come game time.
Using a drill to work on a variety of different skills and concepts is a great way to maximize your practice time and space. In the Cardinal Full Court Drill, Hurley demonstrates how he uses the full team to get shots up, perfect footwork, work on getting to the rim, and improve rebounding all at once. Players run the length of the floor, push the ball in transition and look to read the defense. Athletes have the option to hit the wing, take a pull-up jumper, or attack the rim all while using a shot fake. This is an excellent drill for incorporating multiple skills.
Passing, Pivoting, and Cutting
Doing the small things perfectly leads to players getting better each and every day in practice. In the Full Court V-Cut drill, players have to take their man away and look to come back hard to the ball in order to get open. The ability to get open and make the next pass is a skill every player has to have. Building on passing and cutting, Hurley demonstrates how to protect the ball and pivot to execute a pass to the post, the open player, or across the court. All of these skills will help your players become better at reading angles and playing under pressure.
Every drill and skill that Hurley demonstrates is designed to help your players maximize their improvement at practice. As athletes learn to master the details, they will see their development soar to the next level. This is what has made Coach Hurley special throughout his coaching career: the ability to develop a player's skill set and make them better. Learn to do it yourself with this fantastic video!
