I sent out a request for my newsletter subscribers to send in their favorite [tag]basketball drills for kids[/tag].  Check out this one below (very creative!).

The [tag]basketball drill[/tag] that my teams have really liked is my warm up figure 8 drill.Basketball Drills for Kids

We start them in one corner of the floor, have them run forward for half the court, then at mid court they do the defensive shuffle across the court ( we have a [tag]basketball coach[/tag] do passing drills as they slide across), then run up the other half of the court. When they get to the end line they do the defensive slide across the end line. When they get to the next side line they run backward to midcourt where they do the defensive shuffle across mid court where a coach passes the ball to them again. Then they run backward again to the end line where they do a running jumping drill across the end line back to the starting point. A couple times through and they are winded and warmed up.

Nothing ground breaking about this [tag]basketball[/tag] drill but my kids have liked it.
