Half of the basketball players have a ball.

These basketball players dribble all over the room.

On the whistle they pass the ball to someone they first made eye contact with.

The pass they use to do so is up to them.

Choose the pass that is best in the situation.

If you are close to the ball, do not pass.

Preparatory exercises:

  • with one, passing the ball in front of the body with a flat bounce from left to right
  • Same with two hands, bringing the ball with the left hand from right to left and vice versa (so that the player is forced to bring the hand over the ball and exert force on the side instead of the top of the ball)


Objective:
practise speed and direction change with the ball behind the body and a 180 degree turn of the body

Organisation:

  • players dribble zigzagging between two lines along the length of the field
  • when they reach a longitudinal line, they make a spin dribble
  • change direction and accelerate
  • when the first dribbler reaches the extended free throw line, the next one starts


Teaching points:

  • look over the ball and survey the court in front of you
  • Stop in 2 TR
  • Leg on the side of the ball is behind
  • Hand over the ball
  • First turn your head, then your trunk and then the ball
  • Turn the trunk quickly
  • back foot makes a turn of about 270 degrees


Variations:
Start left and right


retreat-dribble

Prerequisites:
players must already have good dribbling skills

Objective:
practice retreat dribble to get out of a kick

Organization:

  • use the length of the field

  • defender 3 sets up the kick by closing off the sideline
  • dribbler creates space with a retreat dribble
  • dribbles between the legs
  • and attacks the free shoulder of 2


Teaching points:

  • put the body between the 2 defenders and the ball
  • Feet perpendicular to the direction of movement
  • Take off hard and make a jump to the back


Variations:

  • AFTER retreat dribble with between the legs OR under the buttocks by changing hands
  • if you cross the centre line without the ball being tapped away by a defender, you play 1 on 2 on the other basket

  • (waiting players can practice their dribbling skills along the sidelines)


Teaching points:

With defender:

  • use several areas if necessary


With passes:

  • 4 defends actively

  • the forward who just attacked becomes defender
  • defender 2 becomes forward at the open position
  • 1 starts defending the new dribbler
