Basketball drills for catching

  • Two rows at the centerline
  • The first two have a ball - Right
  • From the center line you dribble to the basket:
    • Layup (15x hit in a row, a player under the basket catches the ball and counts, play again if the player didn't count)
    • Shots from bucket (7 in a row)
  • The player under the basket starts when the dribbler starts.
  • Coach goes further and further back.
  • Player A takes a shot at goal and player B catches.
  • Player B takes a shot at goal and player A catches.
  • For 1 minute and goals scored is the number of total points.
  • Set-up. Two equal lines.
  • The first player in each line DOES NOT have a basketball.
  • The Activity - begins with the first player in line making a "V-Cut" at the baseline and pops back out to about 12 feet away from the basket and calls for the ball by showing ten fingers to player #2.
  • Player #2 passes the ball to player #1.
  • Player #1 shoots and gets his own rebound.
  • Player #1 then goes to the back of the line giving his ball to #4.
  • Since player#2 gave his ball to player #1, he now makes a V-cut to the baseline and the activity repeats itself.
  • Coaching Points- Catch and square up to the basket.
  • Passing - 50 Passes
  • Set-up - Two equal teams out on the court.
