This is one of my favorite [tag]basketball drills for kids[/tag]. It’s a good warm up drill plus it works on ball-handling skills as well.
The [tag]basketball drill[/tag] goes like this. Stand in the corner of the floor, all the players line up on the out of bounds line with a [tag]basketball[/tag]. I then get the ball one at a time from the player and throw it down the floor.
The players must:
- Get the ball,
- Dribble down the floor,
- Make a lay up,
- Dribble back down the floor
- Shoot another lay up.
The key is to start by throwing the ball about 1/2 court then as the season wears on throw it harder and faster. They know if they do not get/maintain the ball before it goes out of bounds they run 2 laps.
