Basketball drills for all skills
2 rows, 1 ball per team
- Player scores, rebounds own ball, and passes to next player in line
- Player who scored runs to the other baseline to retrieve a pawn and brings it back to the group. Can also be done with the volleyball scoreboard (keeping track of points, best of 5)
- Group with most pawns at the end wins
- Two players with one ball.
- Both players have the ball in their hands and start pulling hard to get the ball loose from the other.
- Best of 3 loser 5 push-ups.
- Two lines,
- one a meter behind mid-court,
- other behind circle on defense side.
- Two balls in middle
- Two hard dribbles, jump stop, pass for layup.
- 4 things you can do after passing:
- Screen away.
- Cut to the basket (example: give and go, or back-cut). Back cut if the defender is denying the pass.
- V-cut and pop back outside for the return pass and outside shot.
- Rules without the ball:
- If you have an under-play (defender sagging off), pop out to spread the defense.
- If you have an overplay (being denied), backcut.
- Someone dribbling at you, backcut (except for the weave plays).
- Fill the open spot when a teammate cuts inside.
- When someone dribble-penetrates, relocate.
- Screen away, and pop out.
- The most important rule is to keep moving.
