Boyd came up with this scheme for a [tag]practice[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] and sent it to me last week. It relates to a [tag]basketball shoot[/tag] and you can begin using it with your team right away.
This is a fairly simple thing we like to to do at the end of practice. It is a [tag]conditioning[/tag] [tag]basketball[/tag] drill but is fun enough that the kids have very little idea that it is testing all of their skills.
Divide up evenly whether that is 6 on 6, 7 on 7, whatever.
Half on one side of the court and the other half on the other side at half court.
First 2 guys in line start [tag]guarding[/tag] their basket, 3 on the other team play against them. It is basically a 3 on 2 drill. When the 2 stop the 3, or the 3 score, whichever happens, the 2 bring the ball up the floor as quick as possible. As soon as they cross half court, 1 player from their team (on the sideline) touches the center court ring and goes down to play 3 on 2 against the other team.
This drill is played until one side scores 10 (going by ones).
The winners get to rest, the losers run a ladder.
It usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes of constant running but they are playing each other and want their team to win.
