Origins of the Unstoppable Dribble Drive Offense + Breakdown Drills

with Vance Walberg,
Clovis West (CA) High School Head Coach;
former Sacramento Kings (NBA) Assistant Coach;
Creator of the Innovative Dribble Drive Attack Offense,
former Fresno City College Head Coach - 2005 California JC Undefeated State Champions

"In the dribble drive, you're teaching your players how to play basketball, not to run plays."

That's the philosophy of Vance Walberg, the creator of the dribble drive offense, and is exactly why his teams have been known to consistently get better as the season goes on. In this video, Coach Walberg covers many of the concepts that have turned the dribble drive into a popular offensive system, and he shares countless coaching nuggets that are invaluable to coaches who already run the dribble drive or are thinking about implementing it.

Offensive Tactics

Coach Walberg begins by offering the numbering system that he uses with his team at Clovis West. You'll see where he wants his players to get to on the floor to optimize spacing, as well as why he calls his traditional "5-man" a 4-man instead, and vice versa. Additionally, Walberg shares many of the details that coaches often overlook when teaching the dribble drive.

Next, you'll learn the three things that will never change about the dribble drive offense according to Coach Walberg, no matter how much it evolves over time:

  • Attack Mentality - Every time a player touches the ball, they need to think "score"
  • Open the Gaps - After passing the ball, players need to cut to open up space to score
  • Spacing Off Penetration - Once the ball has been taken inside, athletes need to make sure they space the floor to provide additional scoring opportunities

Dribble Drive Actions

Throughout the video, Walberg runs through a number of early-offense actions for the dribble drive. He details how to attack the defense depending on how the opposing team likes to guard off-ball players, including when they face-guard, deny high side, or play flat along the baseline. The idea of reading the defense and attacking where it's weak becomes central when Coach Walberg shows how to get an easy bucket when a post defender steps up to help on drive, allowing the attacking player to lob to the defender's man or convert on a contested layup. The layup can be tough to make, but often results in a trip to the free throw line or an easy cleanup bucket for the vacated post player.

Daily Drills

In order to convert more quick buckets inside, Walberg shares a drill that requires post players to finish three layups in quick succession. The more comfortable athletes become with making close baskets quickly, the more likely they'll make them during a game. He also gives you a 5-man drill designed for the dribble drive that mimics an action often utilized in the offense.

To close, Walberg demonstrates his "Drop Layups" drill as well as a few of his favorite shooting drills. Drop Layups adds purpose to finishing practice by tasking players to focus on the little things that are important for the dribble drive, including passing, timing, attacking the correct spots on the floor and relocating. Finally, you'll get the Olympic Shooting, 5-Spots and Star drills, which are great shooting drills for the beginning of practice.

There's no one better to explain the origins and insights of the unstoppable dribble drive than Coach Walberg. This video serves as a great example why the offense has proven effective at multiple levels and is a fantastic resource for you to reference as you build your own dribble drive system.

How Much Of An Effect Does The Crowd Really Have?

There is no question that psychology plays a crucial role in sports performance. How many basketball games have you seen where the pressure of a clutch situation causes a player to make a poor decision and make you say to yourself "What on earth was that guy thinking?" Players from basketball recreation leagues all the way to the professionals often make poor choices that they wouldn't normally make under relaxed circumstances. Arguably one of the most influential factors that may cause a player to act irrationally is the atmosphere created by the noise of the crowd.Dealing with a noisy crowd (both home and away) has proven to be a difficult task as a loud crowd may cause a number of issues to arise, which include difficulty for players to vocally orchestrate, or to recognize, verbal play calls.

The RealCrowd Simulator allows for replication of basically any real game situation! Be amazed as you transform your practice facility into a jam packed arena and watch as your players improve their focus and concentration! To simulate the sounds of a game, start by turning the "Crowd Ambience" ON to begin creating the sounds of a game. Once the ambience button is on you can press any of the other 20 buttons to replicate what is happening on your practice floor. Each pad of the RealCrowd Simulator has a specific function that will mimic the sounds heard during common scenarios found in a high pressure basketball game. The Software uses 21 high quality sounds that include:

  • Home Team Sounds - Sounds for when the home team makes a shot, misses a shot, is at the Free-throw line, steals the ball, blocks the ball or has a big play.
  • Away Team Sounds - Sounds for when the awayteam makes a shot, misses a shot, is at the Free-throw line, steals the ball, blocks the ball or has a big play.
  • Miscellaneous Sounds - Crowd Noise during a time out huddle, chanting "Airball", chanting "Defense - Defense", chanting a "5-4-3-2-1 countdown" and Clock Buzzer.
For example, if you want to create an intense free-throw situation all you'd do is click the circle "FT" button (Red Circle if you would like to simulate the home crowd on your side and Blue Circle if you would like the crowd to root against you). These buttons will activate the crowd to really put the pressure on the player at the free-throw line! Depending on if the player hits the shot or not, simply hit the appropriate "Make" or "Miss" button below FT!

Let's say you want to replicate a close game with only 5 seconds left to play! Click the "Defense" button to really turn up the intensity and listen to the crowd scream continual Defense chants! Then you can click the "Countdown" button to really turn the pressure up on your team, and hit the Score/Miss button depending on what happens!

All sounds can be overlapped and used together to create a free-flowing crowd atmosphere simulated by the user as they click the pads according to what is happening during the practice session. The RealCrowd Simulator allows both players and coaching staff to take practice sessions to the next level.

The Basketball Crowd Noise Simulator is not limited to any age group or skill level as the benefits can be seen across a wide range of players. Both professionals and those just getting into the sport will often times have trouble focusing regardless of how long they have played the sport. The Crowd Noise Simulator is currently being used by both Division 1 NCAA teams and recreational leagues.
