Jay, one of my subscribers, sent in these [tag]basketball practice drills[/tag] he uses with his team. These are a few of his personal favorites.
I have coached kids from 8-15.
They love the 11-man fast break drill. I don’t think I have seen it in your drill package, but I am assuming you know this [tag]basketball drill[/tag].
Another one that is a staple is “Killer”—
3 players come out into the paint near the low block. “ The [tag]basketball coach[/tag] tosses up a ball off the rim/backboard. The object is for someone to get the rebound and go up strong against the other 2 players. This can get real aggressive.
My youngest group likes to play “Dribble Knockout”—
I had 8 players in the gym last night. All start with a [tag]basketball[/tag] and a dribble all inside the 3 point line. The object is to keep their dribble while trying to knock someone else’s ball outside the line. If the ball goes out beyond the 3 point arc (either by being knocked out or simply losing their dribble), that player is out. Once we get down to 3 – the game moves inside the paint and continues.
