Post Feed/Spot Up/Seal (Video)

Written by

"Post Feed/Spot Up/Seal" is a great multi-purpose drill for multiple players. It includes multiple skills and situations which allows it to be very efficient work. Ball handling, passing, shooting and post play are all aspects of the drill.

 The drill sets up this way:

A line of cones is set up along the sideline

Player with the ball near mid-court on top of the cones.

Post player is in the weak side low post

A coach (or player) with a ball on the weakside wing

Player 1 dribbles through the cones. He should challenge his ball handling and take the opportunity to get better.  Post FeedSpot UpSeal2

At the proper time, the post player makes a cut to the strong side low post.

Player 1 clears the last cone and makes a post pass into the low post

Player 1 then moves to a spot up position, as he would in a game.

After passing, post player peels back and seals toward the weak side passer. Inherent in this move is the use of proper footwork.

Player 1 shoots his spot up opportunity. Passer throws the ball into the post player who executes a post pivot and looks to score.

As with most drills, you can alter the mechanics of the drill to include specific ball handling, pass, cuts and post possibilities.
