Since 2003, he has been the Editor-in-Chief of Fiba Assist, the Official Technical Magazine of FIBA, the International Basketball Federation.

COACH YOUR TEAM TO PLAY BETTER, FASTER, AND WIN, WITH INNOVATIVE DRILLS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE

“Simply fantastic! The Complete Book of Offensive Basketball Drills is a treasure trove of information from around the world. I can honestly say that I have not seen nor read a more complete drill book on one topic that is better than this. Giorgio Gandolfi has outdone himself.”
- Kevin Sutton, Head Coach, Montverde Academy, and Assistant Coach for the Gold Medal USA Jr. National Team

All coaches look for an edge that will help put their team over the top against their rivals. The Complete Book of Offensive Basketball Drills helps you take your team to the next level with the most effective offensive drills from the world's best coaches. Run practice sessions that can produce dominant players using these elite instructional workouts taken from around the globe. You'll bring a fresh perspective on the game to your players, all while teaching solid fundamentals, improving offensive performance, and driving up the score with teams at any level.

Covering everything from basic footwork to fast breaks, with advanced variations for more experienced players and teams, author Giorgio Gandolfi has collected more than 150 drills from the best-of-the-best to equip you with the necessary skills to:

  • Decide which drills are appropriate-and adapt them to meet each team's needs
  • Teach fast breaks, screens, post play, and rebounding
  • Prepare teams to shoot, pass, play the boards, and run
  • Train players to shoot and score under pressure

"Gandolfi offers a truly global sampling of the finest thinking on how to attack the basket or get a shot off against a tough defender. . . . If it’s effective in helping a player improve his pull-up jump shot or make a power move to the basket, it’s here. Gandolfi has done the game a huge service—and made Planet Basketball a more intimate place—with this timely and invaluable book."
