Learning to score and defend on the break as well as hustle and battle for loose balls

Drill Setup

  • Players will form 3 lines at half court, with a coach in the middle holding a basketball

How it Works

  1. The coach will roll a ball towards the basket, with both players in the outside lines fighting to secure the ball.
  2. Once a player has won the ball, the player in the middle line will join the play as a trailer the offensive player can use.
  3. The play is dead after one shot, and the coach will start the next group.

Coaching Tips

  • The offense must make a pass before scoring – this makes for a great opportunity to work on passing in transition.
  • Great for assessing a players skills in transition on both offense and defense.
  • The offense must score within five seconds or it is an automatic win for the defense.
