Take a look at these submissions from Kurt and from Kenneth. Two great examples for [tag]youth basketball coaching[/tag] that can work with any age group.
One [tag]basketball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] my 6th grade girls like is we line up 4 lines on the base line.
Team colors are staggered dark, light, dark, light and set on both ends of the 3 point arc and baseline, and on both edges of the paint. We have the baseline basket along with a basket on each side. I number the baskets 1,2 and 3.
Start by rolling out the ball from under the baseline basket and let the first 4 attack the ball. 2 dark players and 2 light. Call out a basket number and let them attack 2 on 2. One shot at a basket. If missed, call out another basket number and continue until one team scores to end the game. The next 4 in line are next and play begins when you roll the ball out.
Use this for [tag]coaching[/tag] both [tag]defense[/tag] and [tag]offense[/tag]. This has also helped use get more aggressive to loose balls and more.
This is a [tag]free throw[/tag] help drill.
First the team must shoot 50 free throws as a team then make 50. When they get to 50 on the make 50 drill they must run the number they miss on the make 50 drill.
