Purpose: To work on short passes and long passes in a game speed setting. Also develops concentration and focus.
Drill: Form two lines on the baseline at the lane lines as shown. Each player in one line has a basketball.
The first two players begin by passing the ball back and forth without dribbling or traveling. When they reach the opposite baseline, they come back on the outside, making longer passes.
Once a group of two passes the free throw line, the next group begins. Concentration and focus is required to stay clear of the other pairs, especially passing over the inside pairs from outside to outside. Making good passes and catches is also imperative so basketballs aren’t getting in the way of other pairs.
