Title: Wade Schalles - Killer Cradles
Post by: caseman on September 16, 2010, 01:58:16 PM
I was wondering if any of you guys have the DVD set of Wade Schalles - Killer Cradles?  What do you think of it compared to other instructional videos?  I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.  Send me a PM if you are interested in discussing a deal or trade.

If you like his cradles you'll LOVE Gene Mill's half nelson.

I like Schalles' cradle stuff.  I mentioned to one of our kids club coaches that I thought this DVD series was great and in the off season he went out and bought it and the next year, I went to a local kids tourney and saw their whole team hitting the cradle series that we do at the HS.  Good stuff I think.

Rock,  Give me some more info on what you are talking about.  I'm not familiar with Burns.

Rock's reference to Burns is Burns High School in Oregon.  They just won their 10th State title in a row in a small school division, but they have been REALLY good despite having zero economy, long travel distances, no transfer kids, several coaches coming and going, etc.  The one constant over the past ten years has been winning and the "highlander hook" or crossface cradle.  Their teams look like a collection of JV basketball rejects--tall, lanky and bad hair.  They've done a great job and my hats off to their community for keeping it going for so long.  Going back to them being a small school, this by no means should make you think they haven't been big school good.  A few years ago they won the Sierra-Nevada Classic a couple of years in a row.  Rock probably could give you more info since his school is the same size.
