All lay ups are made on the same side of the court, so right hand one end and left hand the other end. Place a chair at foul line extended on side lay up to be made.
3 players start at half court (1,2,3). All others line up at half court (4,5,6…).
1 has the [tag]basketball[/tag] in middle of court and passes to 2 on left side of court, 1 runs around chair on his right, 2 passes to 3 for right hand lay up.
2 get rebound, outlet to 3.
4 runs to centre of court, 3 passes to 4, 2 is out.
4 passes to 1 for left hand lay-up, 4 runs around chair on his left,
3 rebounds, outlet to 1,
5 runs to center of court, 1 passes to 5, 3 is out.
5 passes to 4 for right hand lay up, 5 runs around chair on his right,
1 rebounds, outlet to 4,
6 runs to center of court, 4 passes to 6, 1 is out.
6 passes to 5 for left hand lay up, 6 runs around chair on his left,
And on it goes.
The process for any player coming onto the court is:
- receive a pass in middle of court,
- pass for a lay up,
- run around chair for lay up at other end of court,
- receive outlet pass,
- pass to middle of court
- outlet pass,
- join end of line.
I run this for 5 minutes and depending on age group, target is anywhere from 40 to 60 lay ups. 1 point is deducted for each travel or if ball hits the floor.
