Spring Basketball Workout #6

In Practice Plans by Brock Bourgase

Emphasis: footwork, explosivess, core strength & stability, ballhandling

Summary: This is a variation of my first spring workout. By repeating many similar drills & exercises, I hope to reduce coach-centered instructional time so I can focus on individual feedback. Referring to the same basic drills reinforces the teaching points so that the players can practice them on their own. I extended the time of the workout to allow more time in the weight room & on the stairs.

Reflection: Establishing habits is tricky. I had to give more feedback than I had hoped to regarding defensive positioning & communication. Even at this time of the year, physical activity can help student-athletes focus on exams & I think everyone alleviated some stress.
