Terry Layton has traveled the world as a coach, scout and player. The drills he shares in this DVD represent the best of what's being done at the international level and show how the international game is becoming comparable to NBA-level play.
Drawing on his experiences in the U.S. and abroad, Layton shares innovative drills and concepts not seen elsewhere. All drills are demonstrated with only two baskets, which is what many international coaches typically have available to them.
Get ready for a unique perspective that will give your an explosive edge. Coach Layton begins by laying the foundation for training players to move at different speeds. Use whiteboard diagrams and on-court demonstrations, he describes his "Explosion Theory of Training." He provides an overview of explosion drills that can be used to improve speed and enhance an understanding of the importance of changing speeds as well as its advantages.
Coach Layton covers 10 aspects of explosion training, such as increasing speed whenever players change directions; moving faster after making fakes to gain advantage; exploding after passing and screening; getting into rebounding position; and exploding into position on transition. Layton gives two drills on technique, two on fakes, three drills on passing and exploding and more. Coach Layton moves on the defensive side of play. He discusses the importance of exploding into position on trapping and gives two drills for long and short traps as well as a drill for pressure defense. Filling out the rest of the DVD are his explosive plays.These drills change the tempo of play into a fast-break, half-court offense. This type of offense is not seen in the United States but can be effective elsewhere in the world.
Full Court Drills
In this section of the DVD, Coach Layton outlines seven different drills used by some of the best international coaches in the game today. With each drill, he describes how to incorporate Fartlek training or continuous interval training to give every drill a game-day feel. Each full-court drill works on fundamental habits that will transform athletes into explosive players. Master the lost art of passing by teaching your players how to most effectively get the ball to an open teammate. Coach Layton introduces a new concept called "belly passes" to prepare players for any open shot.
Coach Layton also shares his "Argentine Drill," which can be used in pre-game, warm-up routines or pre-practice routines to get players loose and focused. In his "Chinese Drill," players learn how to attack the basket off a pick-and-roll or pick-and-pop situation. In his "Mexican 3-Ball Drill," players master the art of triple threat and shot prep as they look to attack the basket off a penetrate-and-kick situation. With every drill, players move the length of the floor improving their conditioning and developing their quickness.
If you're looking for drills that maximize your gym space and push your players to a new level of training and moving, this is a must-have DVD. Coach Layton shows you how to develop players that will consistently blow by their opponents leaving them guessing at how to stop you.
