  • They do this while running to the basket on the other side.
  • When someone is close enough to the basket, the man runs a lay-up.
  • He becomes the defender and the other two attackers must try to reach each other with a long ball.
  • The goal of the defender is to prevent the attackers from scoring.
  • If the attackers do not manage to score, they must do 5 push-ups.

Objective:

Try to score 5 times with your group as quickly as possible.

Task:

Divide the players into 2, 3 or 4 groups so that there are max. 6 of them in a group. Give each player in each group a number from 1 to 6. Each group sits in a corner of the terrain. In the middle there are 2, 3 or 4 basketballs in hoops.

When the coach says a number, the players with that number sprint to the middle as fast as they can, take a basketball and dribble to goal. They get only 1 attempt to score. After their goal attempt, they put the balls back in the middle and rejoin their group. The first group with 5 scores wins the game.

Variations/ gradations

Make scoring easier by attaching a hoop to the ring where players can also score. A score through the hoop is then worth double points.

  • Guards + Forwards + Centers
  • from U14 - 6 to 12 players
  • 4 balls
  • whole field
  • 2 baskets


Objective:

  • Pass on the flyer training and finishing at full speed
  • Players 1 and 4 receive the ball at the outlet position and dribble directly to the centre circle.
  • passer sprints along the sideline (flyer)
  • receives the ball at full speed
  • makes the lay up without a dribble


Teaching Points:

  • dribbler is not allowed to cross the centre line
  • the pass should be such that the flyer can finish without dribbling
  • The flyer must ask for the ball with his hand
  • execute at full speed
  • communication: outlet calls
  • after the lay up join the line near the basket where you scored
  • the dribbler returns directly to the outlet after the pass and for the next ball


Variations:

  • (to teach the attacker to finish at full speed under pressure)
  • Have a defender walk up to the attacker during the layup to distract him visually (no physical contact).
  • make the defender appear bigger with a mat or similar in his hands
  • Numbers opposite each other. 
  • Increasing distance slowly.
    • Pass with 1 hand up on 1 hand teammate.
    • Catch with 1 hand and throw back. Continue until ball falls. 
    • Alternate right/left.
  • As soon as this runs. 
    • Two numbers left and right midcourt. 
    • Throw with 1 hand, catch, pass with same hand on cutting player for lay-up.
    • Left/right alternate.
