2013 NCAA Championship Coach; 8x NCAA Women’s Basketball National Championship Coach; back-to-back undefeated national championship seasons (2009 and 2010); 8x National Coach of the year; distinguished member of the Naismith Hall of Fame (2006); over 30 Big East regular season and tournament titles
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to see how seven-time NCAA Championship coach Geno Auriemma teaches skill development and his offensive and defensive systems to a new group of players. With over 13 hours of practice, Coach Auriemma and his staff share more than 30 drills and variations to improve passing, ball handling, shooting, transition, and skill development.
Coach Auriemma runs half- and full-court offensive drills that teach the key skills required for good team offense: The ability to pass, catch, dribble and shoot. He runs his 2-man passing full court drill, 2-line layup drill, and 3-man weave half court and full court drills. To develop his full court transition offense, Auriemma runs his 3-man transition drill which progresses to 4-on-0 and 5-on-0. These drills replicate a game-like atmosphere and really work on pushing the defense for a lay-up or getting them to back up, which leaves you with a 3-point attempt. These transition drills also focus on team communication and conditioning. Coach Auriemma also breaks down his team’s half-court offensive attack. He includes player positioning, spacing, methods of entry, selected plays, and many of the passing and scoring options for the offensive set. He runs breakdown drills that work on proper timing, cutting, screening, reading the defense, spacing, getting open and shooting.
Good defense is based on knowing what your opponent does well and taking it away. Watch Coach Auriemma and his staff teach their players how to defend the baseline drive, close out on the shooter, defend on-ball screens, rebound and communicate. From the tone-setting circle talks before practice starts to the last made free throw, you will see Auriemma’s extensive, fast-paced practices from beginning to end.
