WHAT ARE THE KEYS TO GETTING PAST YOUR DEFENDER?

Coaching U LIVEKevin Eastman - Getting past your defender

In this Nike Pro Answers there’s a classic teaching point from Kevin on getting by your defender…

“You don’t want a lot of space, you want to go right by his body.  The best players in the game when they are driving past someone, they are (what we call) going shoulder to hip…”

The best coaches are teachers of the game, no matter what level they coach.

Teaching basic fundamental principals, fundamental skills and doing so through a high volume of repetitions under game-like pace and duress make permanent acquisition a potential.

Invest your time in each individual on your team.  Describe their needs to them and provide a process and plan for how each player can get to where they want to be.
