The Pure Sweat Basketball Coaches Clinic is a month away, September 26-27 in St. Louis, Missouri! Here is a sneak peak of some of the things Drew Hanlen will be teaching over the two day session.



Set Up: Coach will start with the ball on the wing and will be pressured by a defender. The offensive player and the defender will start on the strong-side block. An additional coach will start on the weak-side wing.

Step 1: Coach will make a post entry to the offensive player. As soon as the coach makes the post entry, the defender that is guarding the coach will sprint and touch the elbow, then sprint to double the offensive player. On the catch, the offensive post player can attack right away before the double comes. If the offensive player is unable to score quickly before the double comes, they must retreat dribble out of the double team and complete a skip pass to the coach located on the weak-side wing.

Step 2: After skipping the ball, the doubling defender will step off, while the offensive post will fight across the lane to re-establish position on the opposite block. The coach with the ball will pass the ball to the offensive player whenever they call for it. On the catch, players will play live 1v1.

Step 3: If the offensive player scores, they will stay on offense and the doubling defender will become the defender, while the defender that just got scored on will become the doubling defender. If the defender gets a stop, they will move to offense and the offensive player will become the doubling defender, while the doubling defender will become the defender.

Additional Info: Offensive player has two dribbles to score. The offensive player gets two points for scoring on the first catch or one point for scoring on the second catch. They lose one point if they turn the ball over or get their skip pass deflected. The first player to five scores wins.
