Here is one of my favorite [tag]coaching girls basketball drills[/tag]. I use this [tag]basketball drill[/tag] for girls age 16 – 19. “  Try it out and let me know what you think!

At one end of the court set up three lines (wing,center,wing) on the baseline. The middle player has a [tag]basketball[/tag] and the second player in each line has a ball. At the other end there are two players, each with a ball on the baseline on each side of the key.

From the baseline with the three lines, the player in the middle has the ball and starts the drill with the front player from each of the wing lines. The drill begins by the first three players running up court with middle player passing to the wing, the wing passing back to the middle and the middle passing to the other wing. The ball never touches the floor. When the line reaches the front court foul line extended, the wings cut to the opposite elbows and receive a pass from the baseline players and shoot off of the pass. The middle player goes in for a layup. The shooters get their rebound and replace the two baseline players. The middle player than starts the drill back the other way with the two baseline passers. The same routine happens at the opposite end.

The key is good passing, make the layups (right and left handed) and shoot off of the baseline pass. You can run this [tag]basketball shooting drill[/tag] until 50 baskets are made or you can run the drill for five minutes and keep tract of the number of baskets made. The players must yell out the made basket number after each basket.
