I received this suggestion on [tag]basketball coaching drills[/tag] from Gregory. A great [tag]basketball drill[/tag] that can work with all age groups.
I call this [tag]basketball passing drill[/tag] “SPIDERWEB“. It consists of four players around the perimeter with the rest of the team in line behind them evenly.
Player 1 is extended out a little from the left block(facing the basket), Player 2 is extended out a little from the right block(facing the basket), Player 3 is free throw extended on the left(facing the basket) and Player 4 is free throw extended to the right(facing the basket).
Drill: Player 2 starts with the [tag]basketball[/tag]. He passes it to Player 1(crisp chest pass), Player 1 receives the ball and passes it back to Player 2 . Player 2 is moving around the perimeter, outside of the paint (low and shuffling without crossing feet). Player 2 then delivers a crisp chest pass to Player 3 who makes a crisp chest pass back to Player 2. Player 2 , still staying low and shuffling without crossing feet, makes a crisp chest pass to Player 4. Player 4 then makes a crisp chest pass to the next Player 2 in line who delivers a bounce pass to the original Player 2 cutting to the basket.
Focus: You will be focusing on the crisp chest passes. Also you will be focusing on the original Player 2’s footwork around the perimeter, his crisp passes while staying low and shuffling without crossing the feet, and the finish layup.
Note: After Player 2 passes the ball to Player 4 he hesitates a little and gets his timing right to receive the pass from the next Player 2 in line for the layup.
*You can run this drill from both sides with Player 1 starting with the ball and finishing with a left handed layup. You also can use bounce passes around the perimeter. Count the misses to add to the end of basketball practice sprints.
