Many coaches write in asking for drills for [tag]basketball team defense[/tag]. Here is one suggestion for a [tag]basketball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] from Judy that works well.
I [tag]coach[/tag] middle school girls and they love this 5 on 5 on 5 drill.
On one end set up chic to chic [tag]defense[/tag] and the other end set up zone defense. I have an [tag]offense[/tag] play against one defense, if the defense steals the ball they take the ball down to the other end and play offense against the defense on the other end. If the offense scores, keep the ball and outlet pass and take the ball down to the other end.

Block out Drill
3 man weave – Start at half court with a [tag]3 man weave[/tag]. Middle girl (a) pass to girl on the right (b) and run behind the girl she [tag]passes[/tag] to. The girl on the right (b) passes to the girl on the left (c)and she runs behind the girl she passes to. The girl on the left (c) passes the ball to the first girl (a) who is now on the right side by the wing position and runs behind her. After the first girl (a) gets the pass triple threat and shoot. Player c runs behind player a and player b runs over to player c and blocks her out.
