Chuck didn’t believe in using many drills, instead he had a couple of good ones for each phase of the game. His belief was that the players had to see and practice the “whole” part of offensive and defensive styles of play. He was concerned about players ability to have a “transfer of learning” from frills to games.
Chuck believed that it should be quick, efficient and have clarity. Most of all, he wanted his team to leave there with great sense of confidence that they were ready to win. He didn’t want to overload the players with information. We would simply go over only a couple of players based on the frequency of the plays that our opponent what run. The BIG thing that we stressed is how are they going to defend our Pick and Rolls, Post-ups and what plays might we use in this game. We wanted to provide the answers to our team and them a lot of confidence they were ready for them. We see too many coaches more concerned with everything that our opponent does and NOT providing “solutions” for their team.
