I received this suggestion on [tag]basketball motion offense[/tag] from Adrienne in Scotland!

From Adrienne…
I [tag]coach[/tag]Basketball Motion Offense women’s [tag]basketball[/tag] in Scotland and not sure how much I could contribute but here are a few basketball [tag]drills[/tag] I like to use!

Balloon Drills
To emphasize that [tag]timing[/tag] is just as important (if not more) than the ability to [tag]jump[/tag], balloons can be used to develop timing of the jump.

1. Each player has a balloon and tries to keep the balloon in the air for as long as possible by jumping up and tipping the balloon.  The aim is to only take necessary jumps when the balloon is within reach.

Progression:“  Try tipping the balloon into the basket.  Can progress to tipping 2 balloons alternatively into a basket!

2. Working with a partner.  One attacker, one defender.
The aim of the attacker is to try and keep control of the balloon by tipping it in the air.
The aim of the defender is to try and gain control of the balloon – blocking out is advantageous for both players in this [tag]drill[/tag].

Progression:“  Can move to 2 v 2 and work in a team concept
