Basketball drills for attack / offense
- 2 attackers on the wing position and 1 defender under the basket
- The attacker with the ball gives a signal the defender chooses either the person with the ball or the other
- If he chooses the person with the ball, the attacker passes the ball to the free person.
- If he chooses the person without the ball, the striker with the ball will go straight to the goal
- Finish with a layup or shot
- Starting 2 player on baseline
- Spurts to the cone and do step slide to next cone
- The first player to take the ball does speed dribble to the other side to score.
- The other player becomes defender
- Basket insight into positional play, knowledge of feint movements
- learn to move in attack and fill the free spot
- 5 spots
- 1 player / spot (U10 4 players, U12 5 players)
- Position 1 passes to position 2,
- Feint and cut through towards the basket.
- Meanwhile position 3 takes the place of position 1 and position 5 takes the place of position 3.
- Cutting player takes place of position 5 (= spot released).
- Perform automatically 5 passes and then score via lay-up or jump-shot.
- Good chest/bounce pass,
- Quick cut with feint (angular),
- Open spot fill up,
- Get ball = in shooting position watch basket first before passing.
Set up 3x3. Ball in the middle, no dribbles.
- Player with ball must pivot and protect ball.
- Players without ball must run free,
- Defenders splitvision to intercept the ball
- Pay attention to a good fit
- Set up players:
- 1 with ball on the head (pos 1/white),
- 1 in position 2 or 3 (blue),
- The rest on 4 or 5 (same side as the forward, red).
- A defender or pilon somewhere around the free throw line or closer to 1 (is the defender of 1)
- White passes to blue and immediately makes a cutting movement.
- Feint to the left and cut across the defender
- Blue passes the ball to white in its movement and takes position 1.
- First of red fills in the position of blue.
- White scores with the ball and the ball goes back to the new player in position 1.
- White follows red and becomes the last player in the red row.
- The exercise starts again.
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:
- 1 v 1 from the wing
- 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.
- 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.
- With 3 men on the back line and the middle one has a ball.
- The middle one passes to a man and chases the ball.
- The receiver keeps the ball behind him and the one who passed first takes the ball and passes on.
- The person who has the ball behind his back runs behind the ball, picks it up at the receiver and passes on to the other side.
- They do this while running to the basket on the other side.
- If someone is close enough to the basket, the man plays a lay-up.
- Make variations on the passing lines
- Consider the pilons as the defense (players can also be used for this).
- Player 1 (white runs) towards player blue.
- Halfway through the run, player blue runs behind his defender and asks for the ball.
- Player white passes to blue.
- As soon as player blue catches the ball, player red sprints away behind his defender.
- As soon as player red catches the ball player 2 sprints away from white behind his defender.
- The makes the circle go round. This is an active exercise in which timing, passing and catching are a crucial part.
- Because everyone is busy, this is also conditionally a good drill.
- With younger players the distance between pilons is shorter.
