Disc 1: Weight Lifting
• Build your culture starting in the weight room and translating that onto the basketball court
• Use a medicine ball to build strength and develop great basketball habits
• Create explosiveness with power lifts such as the snatch, clean, and front squat
Building team culture in the weight room is one way Fresno City College has developed into one of the nations leading Community College programs. Coach Madec gives you an inside look at how his players train during the regular season to get themselves strong physically. You'll see a medicine ball routine that not only works on core strength, but on passing and the rip through technique that requires your players to be strong with the basketball. The players then use weights to perform a variety of power exercises to increase their strength and explosiveness.
You will see how Coach Madec incorporates the use of a shot clock and game situations in the weight room to keep his players mentally tough and always thinking about their performance on the court. With each set, you will see full body exercises and workouts that allow you to maximize your time in the weight room during the regular season.
Disc 2: Practice 1
• Learn break-down drills that ingrain good offensive habits for a motion style of play
• Learn "Blood Drills" for 4v4 and 5v5 that allow for teaching in a scrimmage situation while keeping play up-tempo
• Learn "Fire Progression" drills that work on playing fast with control in the open court under ball pressure
Coach Madec opens his practice sessions by putting his players through mental and physical challenges to raise the maturity level of his young players. With each drill, he sets out to create a special atmosphere and team chemistry and to instill the culture of his program. Coach Madec demonstrates a variety of drills that will require your players to push their limits. This practice includes drills that develop the fast break, rebounding toughness, finishing around the rim, competitive shooting and operating in the open court without turnovers. You will learn several 5-on-0, 5-on-5, and 3-on-3 drills that incorporate all skills instead of breaking down drills into individual skill sets. With each drill, he breaks down what occurs within their offensive system and applies the action necessary for the drill.
Disc 3: Individual Improvement
• Develop a killer step back move to create space for open shots
• Teach post players inside moves to help them score easily around the basket
• Breakdown drills that can help your players develop scoring options from a specific aspect of the offense
This disc provides an All Access look at Fresno City College's individual player skill development practice. In this hour long practice session, Coach Madec uses stations to develop wings, post players, and point guards. These stations emphasize ball handling skill work, shooting, post moves off the screen, on the block, on ball screen, and king of the court where his players are competing against each other in a 2-on-2 shooting drill.
Coach takes the point guards and wings through some of the basic fundamentals that he believes are necessary to run an offense and limit turnovers. Drills focus on everything from the stance the players should be in to relaxing the body prior to making a move in order to be more explosive. Dribble moves that the team focuses on in this session include the crossover, hesitation and escape dribble. The guards work on shooting pulls ups and step backs to create space, good secondary moves that will prepare them as the help defense steps up and getting balanced and staying in the flow after using these moves to prepare them for the shot opportunity created
Coach Madec demonstrates several full and half court chair drills you can use to teach your players to attack, change speed, and explode by their defender while dribbling in the open court. Your players will learn where the attacking angles will be as they come off of a ball screen or from a stagger screen off the ball.
Post players work on low post moves with the jump hook. When attacking the middle the posts work on a crow hop, which allows the post player to take the space the defender may give you. Posts work on looking for the cutters before executing any move and they practice screening and how to come of the screen. They work at keeping defenders on the back once they open up after setting a screen. Shooting is practiced by faking a screen and then moving either to the hoop for a layup or to the outside for a shot.
Disc 4: Practice 2
• Learn how to efficiently practice your offense using 5-on-0 drills
• Use the competitive 4-on-4-on-4 Cut Throat Drill to teach your offensive system
• Use the "Six Trips" drill to integrate fast breaks into your offense and challenge players' ability to process commands
