I received these suggestions on [tag]offense in basketball[/tag] from Jess in the UK and from Leonard.
Here is a [tag]basketball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] we do frequently with good results.
Start the player on the right elbow with the ball.
Using their right hand, they [tag]dribble[/tag] and take a [tag]lay-up[/tag].
They then get their rebound and use their right hand to dribble to the other elbow and come back using their left hand and [tag]shoot[/tag] another lay-up.
They repeat this exercise for a set period of time, e.g 2 minutes.
It is designed for SPEED!
The participant becomes very fatigued very quickly and this drill gets them to perform good technique whilst they are tired.
I use a drill call perfection 6.
It consists of a fullcourt right hand lay-up and then left hand.
Next would be 2 man [tag]passing[/tag] up and back.
Next would be outlet and fill up and back.
Then 3 man weave lay-up up and back and last is three man weave jumpshot up and back and the ball is not allowed to hit the floor on the jumpshot.
The key to the drill is if you miss the lay-up up you have to go back and you want to try and perfect the drill first time out 8 mins. but goal is 7:30 mins
