When I’m teaching the Motion Offense I use this drill that I call the Motion Passing Drill.  This drill really teaches the importance of moving to receive the pass (v-cut), the back door cut, and passing to the post (especially coming from the weak side).

Motion Passing Drill

  • 5 on 5 half court scrimmage – Man to Man defense.
  • No dribbling or shooting allowed.
  • Each team gets 3 possessions (change possession on a turnover).
  • Each successful pass gets a point.
  • A pass to the block or elbow or to a cutter in the lane gets 5 points.
  • Fouls give 5 points to the other team.

The team that loses runs, while the team that wins watches.
