Breakthrough Habits

Basketball is changing. It’s a game of space and advantage. Breakthrough Habits will give you the tools to help you excel in today’s game.  Every once in a while you’ll find a truly exceptional offensive team. These teams make their opponents look unprepared. They find open cutters for layups — and open shooters for uncontested 3-pointers And they seem to score almost “at will.” They aren’t necessarily bigger, faster, and stronger than their opponents (although that definitely helps!) Exceptional offensive teams excel in the habits that give them advantages over their opponents. Coach Dustin Aubert joined our Better Basketball team with a wealth of college-level experience, as a player and as a coach. Best of all, he is exceptional at analyzing what top teams are doing. In this course, Coach Dustin identifies how NBA and college teams are using five habits every game to gain advantages over their opponents. In almost two hours of frame-by-frame analysis, he breaks down how top teams are using Ghost Screens, Playing Off Two Feet, Cutting, Stampede, and Protection Plans as part of their offense.  Then, he shows how you can implement these same habits with your team — no matter what level you coach!
