Purpose: Work on and develop hustle, speed, aggressiveness and competitiveness.
Drill: Two players in each corner. The first player on each side are one team (2 per team). A coach has a basketball in the middle of the court.
The coach starts the drill with a call of ‘GO’ and throws the ball on the ground. All 4 players sprint and hustle for the ball. The twosome that retrieves the ball are on offense and the two that do not get the basketball are on defense. They play 2 on 2 until one team scores.
The team that scores goes to the corner on the side where they score … the ‘losing’ team sprints to the other end of the court to get in line. The next four players then begin the drill again.
- Play 3 on 3, 1 on 1, 4 on 4, instead of 2 on 2.
- Play with a weighted basketball such as those available in the Hoops U. Basketball Store
