with Mike Maker, Williams College Head Men's Basketball Coach; two consecutive NCAA D-III Final Four appearances (2009-10, 2010-11)
Mike Maker's offense has been referred to as "the Princeton Offense on steroids." This high paced version of the old classic excites his players and yet maintains the discipline necessary to be one of the most efficient offenses in college basketball. For the first time, you can witness how this coaching veteran of 23 years prepares his team for the upcoming season.
This unique All Access DVD set is packed with breakdown drills and variations of Coach Maker's hybrid Princeton Offense. He shares his 90/10 Concept. 90 percent of his practices are focused on offense while 10 percent are focused on defense.
During the practice Coach Maker runs predominately offensive drills to refine his players' offensive skills sets. Witness how Maker teaches the many Princeton options in a 5-on-0 setting and then allows his players to execute them according to their individual strengths. He encourages his players to follow their instincts as they move into controlled 5-on-5 scrimmages, allowing the offense to evolve.
Coach Maker spends a tremendous amount of time with the team scrimmaging, with an emphasis on running the Princeton Offense. During this time Maker and his staff correct the players in an All-Star fashion to ensure that there is teaching going on, but also to condition the players. This demonstration of the offense in motion is a critical teaching tool for the coach. It's hard to find a team that executes so fluidly within an offensive concept as sophisticated as the Princeton offense. You will understand why it's called "the Princeton on steroids."
There is no down time in Maker's practices and you will benefit from numerous skill and conditioning drills. Each of them is an extension of the overall offense. In separate drills, you will learn how Maker teaches his man-to-man defensive principles in 3-on-3 and 2-on-2 drills. This DVD is the complete package.
In true All Access fashion, you will be able to watch the coaching staff prepare each practice. See them implement their weekly goals into daily practices, as they discuss skill and strategy needs and progressions. 286 minutes. 2012. DVD.
