Sandy and Dennis wrote to me and sent in these [tag]basketball[/tag] [tag]drills[/tag] that work well with their teams. Try using Sandy’s [tag]drill[/tag] on how to pass a basketball with your team and watch the improvements.
Box Passing Drill
Player 1 is at the front of a line under the basket.
Player 2 at top right corner of the lane.
Player 3 at the bottom left.
Player 4 at bottom righ.
Player 5 at top left corner.
Player 1 passes the ball to player 2 and follows the ball, and takes player 1’s place, as 2 throws to 3 and takes his place, as 3 passes 4 and takes his place, as player 5 passes it back to the new player 1 under the goal, and gets back in the line.
Very smooth [tag]passing[/tag] drill and can get going pretty fast with no collisions!
A 3 on 2 into a 2 on 1 basketball drill.
You start three players under one basket, one player in the middle and two wings. The player in the middle has the ball.
Set up two [tag]defenders[/tag] at the foul line of the other basket to play [tag]defense[/tag]. The three players attack the basket being defended 3 on 2 after a basket is made or the ball is turned over. The two defenders now take the ball and attack the other basket against the player who made the basket or turned the ball over 2 on 1.
