Purpose: To teach passing and catching skills while moving to get open, such as in a game situation.
Drill: Players should get into pairs with a basketball and a court area of about 15-20 feet diameter (basically a 1/4 of a halfcourt area).
To start the drill, the player without the ball will make a move to get open (v-cut, l-cut, etc). He will receive the pass, square up to the passer and get into a triple-threat position. The passer then becomes the receiver and makes a move to get open. The drill continues in the same manner for the determined amount of time.
The passer may take a dribble or two before making the pass.
