1 v 1 Side-by-Side
“Create contact to create separation.” Great drill working on offensive player creating contact with their lower body to gain & keep an advantage & finishing vs resistance in the paint. Most players are not comfortable with body to body contact so we must create situations where contact takes place. Overtime they will begin to incorporate it into their game.
Drill starts with both players side-by-side with their feet touching in a low athletic stance. The drill starts on the offensive players first dribble. Key point of emphasis is the offensive players 1st step must be inside to create contact and get their top foot over the defender’s top foot. The goal is to not let the defender back in-front of the ball.
