Title:Footwork/Jump Stop
Graphic N°: 1
loading graphic

The player starts with the back to baskets facing the left corner of the free-throw line. Throw the ball so that he can catch it on the corner of the mentioned free throw line. I want the player to jump into a jump stop, make a reverse pivot while the right foot is the pivot foot. After a shot fake i want the player to attack the left side of the basket by using a cross step. After one hard dribbling i want the player to stop in jump stop again while landing with the outside (left) foot minimal first. After a controlled and balanced finish with the outside hand (left) i want the player to get the rebound - doesn't matter if he scored the ball - and get the ball again on the other corner of the three throw line.
Goals / purpose / skills
balanced Jump Stop, clear back pivot, dynamic first step of dribbling, finish with hook shot, rebound.
take a shot after the back pivot from the free-throw line instead of shot fake; make a back pivot for outlet pass after the rebound; coach is trying to steal the ball after rebound so the player has to chin and protect the ball. The same instruction but the player has to start either from the 3-point line or half court line.
Tips / Hints / Emphasis
- correct footwork and balance on fakes and finishes
