This course will help you conceptualize how a practice can be run using zero seconds, BDT, and a games approach. This practice depicts players that are new to many of the concepts. It also depicts how Coach Oliver would run the first practice of the season to introduce individual and team development concepts.
The practice combines teaching, drills, and challenges that apply the concepts. One of the key small-sided games we would use during the season to cover various offensive and defensive topics are also introduced. The head coach also wanted us to focus on transition defense and offense, so that is included in the practice. The practice incorporates the team concepts like pistols and screen away options according to this head coach’s philosophy.
The whole practice is divided into five parts, one each per lesson.
