Create basketball practice plans
Creating basketball practice plans can be difficult, and it’s easy to get into the same routine day in and day out. To help you add some variety to your practices, we’ve compiled some tips for creating a good basketball practice plan.
Tip # 1 – Know what you want your team to be good at
If you are already a member of TeamOnThree, you probably filled out your team website's philosophy section. This is where you can tell the public what your team is about and what aspects of the game you deem important. Here's an example:
"We like to play an up-tempo style of basketball and get up and down the floor as much as possible. Our goals is to wear out the other team by putting pressure on them while we are on offense."
This coach’s philosophy tells a lot about what is important to them. They want to push the ball on offense (fastbreak), and wear out the other team (be in good shape). Before you sit down to create your first practice plan, determine 3 – 4 aspects of the game that you want to focus on in practice. These things can be emphasized in drills throughout the season.
Tip # 2 – Variety, variety, variety
It's easy to get complacent during the season. Practice and games take up a lot of time and if you are not careful, you can get into the same old routine - same drills, same plays, and the usual scrimmage sessions.
We challenge you to add some variety to your basketball practice plans. Continue to focus on the 3 – 4 areas you want your team to be good at, but sprinkle in some other drills that will help your players strengthen some of the areas they may be weak in
