Do you know the quickest way to improve a player's off-the-dribble
game? Do you know the fastest way to beat a defender, get to the
hoop, and make a play?

This email is going to be short and to the point. No complicated
drills, nothing fancy. Just a simple tip that will make your players
twice more effective with the ball.

Ok, so in 1-on-1 basketball, or even 2-on-2 or 3-on-3, players have
a lot of room on the court. They can dribble almost as much as they
want...

But, 5-on-5 basketball is MUCH different. Not only is the floor
crowded, but there are 4 other teammates that are just going to
stand around and watch you if someone dribbles too much.

So the 1st step in improving the off-the-dribble game is to ...
stop dribbling as much! As simple as it sounds, this tip is very
valuable, and you'll see why in a minute.

Try this simple drill in practice with your team:

- You need 2 players on each hoop, one on offense and one on defense.

- The player on offense has the ball at the top of the key.

- The offensive player has 3 dribbles to get off a shot. This means
that on the 4th dribble, its a turnover and the player on defense
gets the ball.

For every basket, the player gets a point. You can play this drill up
to 3 or 5 points, whatever your practice time allows.

The importance of this drill lies in the fact that you only have 3
dribbles to get off a shot! This means that each move has to be
quicker, better and more effective.

The player doesn't have all the time in the world and they can't do
too many moves...remember, in this drill, the player HAS to get off
a shot within 3 dribbles.

We guarantee that if you run this drill in practice, you will see your
players off-the-dribble skills improving...

They'll take much less time on the court and they won't over-dribble!

Their moves will be stronger and more efficient.

Try this drill today, and watch how much they improve...
