Purpose: This drill helps the players work on making skip passes, receiving skip passes, and moving into an open gap in the zone prepared to shoot.
Drill: One line at the top as shown. Use as many baskets as you can to keep lines short. O1 starts by making a skip pass to the coach or manager (C). After making the pass, O1 slides down outside the 3-point line. ‘C’ skip passes back to O1. O1 takes the shot and follows it.
Coaching Points: Players should work at making good passes and using good footwork so that they are able to catch and shoot quickly.
