Here are some [tag]basketball practice drills[/tag] to liven up your practices and have some fun. We like to mix things up so to make training more fun every so often have a relay race session.
We split all the players up into teams of 5 so there are usually 4 teams of 5 and then do different races. For each race the team that wins gets 4 points, the team that came second gets 3 points and so on. At the end the team that wins doesn’t have to do any running and whereas the team that came second runs 1 suicide, the team that came third 2 suicides and the team that came last 3 suicides.
Here are a few examples of the kinds of races we do during [tag]basketball practice[/tag]:
Two ball dribble
Backwards two ball dribble
Backwards pretzel walk
Through the legs dribble
Backwards through the legs dribble
Bounce one [tag]basketball[/tag] in one hand and roll another ball along the floor with the other hand
The above drill backwards
Dribbling around cones
Each player on each team must complete this [tag]basketball drill[/tag] full court and back before the team has finished. This drill is very easy to adapt and change!
