Players must be able to perform a layout from a bounce pass


Learn how to create forward scoring opportunities for yourself


4 players / quarter field, other players wait in center circle. Move over: offence becomes defence, defence goes out + new offence

The helpline is out: you can play with two groups of four on a basket and force the players not to use the space where the help is in the game.

(first perform the exercise several times without defense)

  • guard dribbles up from the center circle
  • at the same time, 2 makes a V-cut
  • if 2 gets free, pass and 1 v 1
  • if defender overshoots 4, then continue the V-cut to at least a meter
  • above the three-point line and sprint backwards for the backdoor pass 
  • and play 1 v 1
  • All score out of:
    • backdoor
    • 1 v 1 from the wing

Mtm offense

  • If you don't manage to pass to 2, 2 will sprint to the centre circle and get the pass of 1. 
  • The cycle then starts again from the front, but now with 1 at the forward position.

Teaching Points:

  • if you can see your defender's shoulder in the pass line at the V-cut, then there is overplay.
  • and you have to take the defender up to at least a metre above the three-point line towards the sideline
  • sprint at full speed as you go backdoor
  • the backdoor pass is mostly one-handed, from the dribble with a flat bounce
  • Two rows on the side at the height of the center line. 
  • Ball is on one side, attacker decides when he leaves and runs to the middle line, which he must cross all the way. 
  • The defender also departs but only has to touch the centre circle. 
  • Aim of the exercise is to come in front of the attacker as a defender. 
  • When a goal is made, 3 push-ups for the defender, a miss is 3 push-ups for the attacker.

Start with 1 ball, later on you can use two balls.

  • 4 rows in 4 corners
  • 1 ball in opposite corner
  • pass to the man on the right, run straight ahead
  • pass to the running man, and run straight ahead
  • running man passes straight ahead, connecting behind the second row.

  • Call out the name of the person you're passing to.
  • after 5 minutes, switch sides and pass left

  • Walk fast in pairs, from baseline to baseline on the right side of the field, 
  • meanwhile chest-pass back and forth, 
  • spacing approx. 3 meters. 
  • Return on the left, but with bounce pass
  1. with 1 ball (repeat 2 or 3 times)
  2. Stand in a circle
    • 1 ball / dribble on the spot
    • call name of the other and bounce pass
    • No name mentioned is out of the circle!
    • Not captured, out of the circle!
  3. same with 2 balls (repeat 2 or 3 times)
  • Throw the ball above your head against the wall and catch it.
  • Short movements 
  • 1 minute
