Attack Dribble: Baseline Drive Adjustment (Part)

This entry is part 12 of 24 in the series Dribbling Actions

A. 2 offensive players 1 action

Attack Dribble Baseline Drive building blocks are the same as the Circle Movement building blocks except the only way to drill the Baseline Drive Adjustment is to drive baseline. Since the attacker only has one option for attack, the main purpose of this building block is to drill the fundamental skills of the drill. The true reactions will be drilled when the Attack Dribble Layer is tested as a whole.

A dummy help side defender should be added early in the learning process so players can practice avoiding charges as well as learning the amount of time they have to make a decision when they drive baseline.

Building this sub-layer piece by piece is very difficult, because in order for players to fill the windows, it is critical for them to know where other players are located. With only 2 or 3 players on the court, the number of combinations for the location of other players is too varied to really be able to drill a habit.  For Circle Movement, players rotate in one direction regardless of the location of other players.  For the Baseline Drive Adjustment, their movements are completely dictated by the position of the other players.

In order to really teach players the Baseline Drive Adjustment, coaches should use 4 or 5 player Attack Dribble building blocks that were discussed in the Circle Movement breakdown and give players the freedom to attack in any direction.  This allows players to either rotate on a non-baseline drive and fill windows based on the location of all of their teammates.
