Archie Miller, University of Dayton Head Coach
Up and coming University of Dayton head coach Archie Miller brings you an in-depth look at how to develop your players in the off-season – while working on their conditioning. Coach Miller details the strategies and drills they use to train the Flyers during the off-season.
Coach Miller uses on court demonstrators, along with his coaching staff, to outline an array of drills you can implement right into your off-season development plan. Coach describes his off-season plan and how to prepare your entire program for off-season development by having many drills to choose from so your players are pushed to their best every session.
You will learn warm-up, ball handling, and shooting drills along with several competitive drills that simulate game situations. Every drill, whether it is a warm-up, skill work, or spot shooting, mimics game speed. The drills he uses focus on teaching the following moves from any position on the court:
Pull up jump shot
Reach out layup
Coach Miller’s shooting series is not your conventional spot shooting drill. Instead, using the clock as a gauge for effort and simulating game speed, it is a tough workout in and of itself:
Spot Shooting Series 1-2 Step
Spot Shooting Series on the Move
3 Men, 2 Balls Drill (2’s, 3’s, pull-up jump shots, half-court speed pull-up jumpers, line shooting)
Coach Miller teaches you how to effectively chart your player’s progress to provide evidence of their growth during the off-season. By charting your player’s progress, you will build their confidence for the upcoming season, along with the drive for continuous development in the off-season. Your players will continue to buy into your program goals by seeing their progress.
Coach Miller provides coaches at any level with challenging player development drills and effective ways to track their progress.
