While at practice last night we used this [tag]court defense[/tag] drill that Dee sent to me earlier this season. A great example of a [tag]3 on 2 drill[/tag] that can work with all age groups.
You might have this [tag]basketball drill[/tag] already–it’s called (3 on 2 / 2 on 1)
I like using this because my [tag]basketball[/tag] team likes it. They’re a running team and like a lot of fast breaks.
It starts with 2 on one side of the court playing defense and 1 on the other side also playing defense. If you have a lot of players it works well. Split the team in half, say 5 on one side and the other 5 on the other side at the half court mark. 3 players will start at half court; they go down on
the 2 defensive players, creating a 3 0n 2 situation. When the defense rebounds they go down creating a 2 on 1 situation.
2 out of the 3 players will stay on defense and the other will rotate to the back of one of the lines. On the 2 on 1 side one of the offensive players will stay on defense and the other will go back to the end on a line.
I like this because it teaches them team work and good passing. These are 7th & 8th graders and they’re learning a lot on how to play the game.
