This idea for [tag]basketball defense[/tag] was sent in by Ron. It has become a favorite [tag]drill[/tag] with the team.
My girls like to do this once in a while. They have a blast and it gets very competitive. It’s an old kid’s game I adapted to [tag]basketball[/tag].
2 teams – one on each sideline and each with their own basket to defend.
Each team numbers their players (make sure each team has the same numbers) and I stand in the middle calling out numbers to come out and try to score against each other.
I throw the ball up and the fun begins. Call out 1 number, or a group of them and they have 10 seconds to score.
The first team to 10 (or whatever you decide) wins.
I usually let most fouls go as long as it’s not too rough.
