Special thanks to Daryl and to Pete for sending these in.Â If you’re looking for [tag]basketball drills[/tag] to teach [tag]basketball skills for kids[/tag] you should try these out!
Here’s a [tag]block-outÂ drill[/tag] I picked up from another coach, I just made a couple changes in the [tag]basketball drill[/tag].
Place the [tag]basketball[/tag] below the rim or in the middle of the 3 second lane on the floor; have 3, 4 or 5 offensive players on the perimeter, and match up by size with the same amount of defensive players.Â Place 3 seconds on the clock, when the coach blows the whistle or says â€œGoâ€, the defense must block out until the horn sounds.Â The offense tries to touch the ball before the horn sounds. Do this 5 times, then switch the offense and defensive players around and repeat.
Pick 5 spots outside the key…baseline, elbow…top, elbow, baseline.
Start at baseline…to move to the next spot, you have to hit two shots in a row.Â Same thing at next spot.Â If you miss a shot…you move back one spot.Â After the 5 spots…you then shoot 5 free throws in a row.Â If you miss a free throw…you start over…from the beginning!
Simple drill…can be modified regarding # of shots, # of FT’s etc.Â Good mental training…anxiety increases as you near the finish.Â Do this as a team…first one to finish wins.Â Can add punishment for losers.
