Looking for drills on [tag]passing in basketball[/tag]?“ You’ve come to the right place!“ Try out this idea below and let me know how it goes for you.
A [tag]basketball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] I use at least once a week is what I call the Circle Drill (many years ago I learned this from the late great Jack Donohue – for those of you who may not know Jack, he was the high school [tag]coach[/tag] of Kareem“ Abdul-Jabbar in high school, coached at Holy Cross and coached Canada’s national team.)
This [tag]passing[/tag] drill usually puts a smile on players faces.
Stand around the center circle with your toes just touching the line.
One person is “monkey in the middle” until they touch the ball as it is passed across the circle, touches someone while they are holding the ball, make a person panic and [tag]pass[/tag] to someone directly on either side of them, or if someone takes either foot off the circle. At that point either the receiver or the passer must be the “monkey” which is coach’s judgement call on who’s fault it was. 10 minutes is plenty.
It teaches at least no look passes, ball fakes and hustle. Have fun!
