Bob McKillop's philosophy is simple, the "details" of coaching basketball are the foundation of success.
In this basketball DVD, Coach McKillop shares his seven keys to successful basketball:
- Having an act
- Be down and balanced
- Do the little things
- Flesh-to-flesh contact
- Finish everything
Learn four daily objectives McKillop uses to help teach the game: Let's get better, have fun, play to win and make every play count; to better help him teach the game. These four objectives are controled by the coach, and if done well, will improve the learning environment in your practices.
At Davidson, McKillop's team is an attacking full court offense where they are always aggressive and attack with discipline by taking a high percentage shot in transition. This system also relies on five rules of discipline which are:
- Catch and see - Slows the game for the athlete and allows them to quickly find teammates, the person guarding them, and where the opponent is guarding.
- Dribble with a purpose - Attack somebody or to help somebody
- Offense is a fight for space - Run through your cut or pivot to create space
- Finish your cut - Find a spot on the floor and get there after the cut to create great spacing and good angles
- Help somebody - Learn to sacrifice - set a screen, run hard up the floor, make an extra pass.
On the court, McKillop shows these keys, objectives and rules of discipline in action by showing some of his team drills. The drills include a 2-man stretch drill, read the coach, 3-on-3 with a coach, and triangle shell drill.
Learn how to develop your team's offensive philosophy using simple principles that can be developed and refined in your daily practice drills.
