Purpose: To teach passing, catching, dribbling, and shooting in a full court, fast break type of situation.
Drill: The team should have four players on the court as shown with O1-O4. Half of the remaining players will be under one basket and the other half will be under the other basket.
Two balls required for this drill.
The first player in each line on the baseline starts by passing the player on his side of the court. The passer will then sprint up the court between the receiver and the sideline.
The receiver will make a return pass and the sprinter then dribbles to the half court line. He will then make a pass to the second player on his side of the court.
Player then sprints, receives a return pass, dribbles to the basket and shoots a layup. Rebound own layup and pass to first person in line waiting.
Continue drill until a required number of layups is made.
- Emphasis should be placed on accurate passing and catching while on the run.
- Emphasis also on moving from the catch to dribble and doing so without traveling.
- Instead of a specific number of makes, do this drill with a time (e.g. 1 minute, 2 minutes). Requirement should be total number made in that timeframe. Total number will depend on age and ability.
