Attack Dribble: Circle Movement (Whole II)

This entry is part 9 of 24 in the series Dribbling Actions

After breaking down Circle Movement into all of its small parts and pieces, it’s time to put it back together. Unfortunately, there’s a problem.  We’ve only practiced single actions.  We have yet to put two actions back to back. The reason for that is we have yet to learn what to do in the post once we kick the ball out. All that we have learned is to drive and rotate for one action.

So the question is how can we put it all together if we can’t string actions together yet?

We can, we just have to carefully control the action. There are a number of ways that we can use the whole part. Just remember, we can’t drive baseline yet.

A.  3 out, 4 out or 5 out Circle Movement Test

Place 3, 4, or 5 players on the court in either a 3 out, 4 out or 5 out alignment. Give one player the ball.  The player will attack in either direction.  The other players will circle move appropriately.  The attacking player will keep their dribble alive, dribble back out to the open perimeter spot and attack again in either direction. This will test the players understanding of circle movement. Using 5 out for this test allows the coach to test 4 players at once.  I would recommend using 5 out for the test even if you plan on using a different alignment.

B.  3 on 3, 4 on 4 or 5 on 5 Live

Players are allowed to play live 3 on 3, 4 on 4, or 5 on 5 but only for 1 action which must be an attack. This will force good moves by the ball handlers.  They will get more comfortable with quick reactions to help defense. The other players must rotate.

There are a number of different rules that coaches could add to this building block to create different drills.  It all depends on what they are trying to accomplish.

Let’s cover the Baseline Drive Adjustment right quick so we can tie up this layer and move on to Post Slides.  Once we cover post slides, we can start stringing multiple actions together without kicking players off the court.  🙂
