One of the [tag]basketball passing drills[/tag] that has helped me immensely this season with my girls team is this continuous passing [tag]basketball drill[/tag].

Set up one line under the basket near the low block.  Put a player as an outlet on the sideline about a quarter-way up the court, another player diagonal from her at the mid-court circle (where the mid-court line and circle meet), and a third player diagonal from her again on the sideline.  Do the same thing on the other side (there should be six players/receivers on the court).

The first person in line has a [tag]basketball[/tag] and passes the ball diagonally to the first receiver.  She then runs a STRAIGHT LINE, receives the ball back from the first receiver, then quickly passes to the person at mid-court, receives the ball back, passes to the third receiver, and receives a BOUNCE PASS and takes a lay-up.  Once she takes the lay-up and rebounds the shot, she passes to the outlet receiver heading back, receives the pass, passes to mid-court person # 2, then to the sideline again, takes the [tag]lay-up[/tag], and goes to the end of the line after passing the ball to the next person in line.

As your team builds speed with this drill, you can have each player wait until the first person is at half-court then have the next person go so that it’s continuous.  Another variation is to have each person call “BALL!” and present a target for each pass. Rotate your players so that the passers on the court have a turn in the line as well.
