Attack Dribble: Baseline Drive Adjustment (Whole)

This entry is part 13 of 24 in the series Dribbling Actions

A. 5 players 1 action (5 out whole)

These building blocks now can incorporate any drive in any direction.  Coaches should use the same tests that they used in the Circle Movement whole block to test the combination of the two together.

Post Slides are coming up.  You will be able to include them shortly.

B. 4 players 1 action (4 out whole minus the post)

This is the whole drill (minus the post player) for a 4 out alignment. Of course any drive from the corner would follow the same rules as a 5 out alignment.  Assuming the spots were filled in order from the corner, the person at the opposite top spot would be responsible for filling the natural pitch window.

The scenario above is the most likely situation where a Baseline drive could occur from the corner spot.  The Passing Layers will discuss options for players who are more than 1 pass away in a 4 out alignment.  They are not required to fill the next closest spot.  This would be an option for the 3 player at the Top Left spot in the diagram. This player could be located on the wing or in the opposite corner. The player in the Top Right spot could be in other spots as well. Not only would this force the defense to defend the whole width of the court, but it also makes this movement to the natural pitch position much simpler for the 3. There are advantages however to filling all of the spots, and taking away some of the help side coverage.  It is up to the coach to encourage the alignments and configurations that best fit their team.

Regardless of the initial locations of the players, the players should be located in the appropriate windows when the ball handler drives baseline.
