Coach Mike Dunlap, former head men’s basketball coach of two-time NCAA Division II champion Metro State, takes us through a variety of footwork drills his teams utilize to help them become quicker and more efficient basketball players.
The tape is basically broken into two sections. In the first part, Coach Dunlap discusses the how’s and why’s to working on improving footwork for basketball players. Coach Dunlap believes in doing these footwork drills so that the athletes can learn to move from point A to point B most efficiently. In my role as a strength and conditioning coach, I agree with this idea completely. Some players will be quick, some will not be very quick. However, we all can learn to use our body properly and fundamentally so that we become more efficient in our movements.
The second part of the tape is a demonstration of the more than 20 drills utilized to help the athlete’s become more efficient. Each drill is also explained and described as necessary giving you a complete understanding of how to properly perform and instruct the specific movement.
This is a wonderful video to help you give your team and athlete’s the tools necessary to become not only better basketball players, but better athletes as well. If you are serious about developing better athletes with the understanding that a better athlete equals a better basketball player, then this video is a must-have for your library.
