How It Works

1.  Place a cone on the right lane line, and have the players form a line, with the first two players holding a basketball.

2.  1st player will sweep, take a hard dribble, come to a jump stop, and go up strong to finish the layup.

3.  He will then collect his rebound, and pass the ball to the next player in line without a ball.

4. The 2nd player has the green light to go once the player in front of him has rebounded.

5.  Continue for 2 and a half minutes, then switch to the left side.

Coaching Tips

Make it harder: Have players execute a jump stop over to the other side of the hoop, finishing with the left hand.

Make it easier: Give players time to practice the footwork on it’s own – without the pressure of making the layup it may be easier.
