Ad
  • The players between the cones guard their terrain. 
  • They must prevent the player with the ball from hitting their gate.

  • 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

  • Centers
  • Starting from U16
  • 2 or 4 centers
  • 1 ball per pair
  • a basket 


Aim:

  • Defending a turn around jump shot
  • box out after shot
  • stimulate offensive rebound after shot


Organization:

  • attacker turns around his axis and shoots
  • Defender brings his body in front of the ball with a slide-step, as close as possible to the body of the attacker.
  • keeps both arms straight up (= wall) so that the attacker has less view of the basket and has to adjust his shot slightly to shoot over the outstretched arms
  • box out immediately after the shot
  • A goal is 1 point
  • offensive rebound is 2 points even after a goal
  • each player defends 5 times in a row
  • loser for each point difference: 2 push-ups


Teaching points:

  • feet slightly wider than shoulder width
  • knees slightly bent
  • upper body and arms vertically
  • NO batting movement towards the ball
  • stand up against the attacker by moving towards the attacker (the upper body remains vertical)


Variant:

  • attacker starts under the ring, with his back to the back line and gives a short bounce pass to himself
  • attacker first makes a shoulder fake in the opposite direction just before the shot
  • 2 baskets, minimum 5 players per basket needed.
  • 1 player left sideline (A) extended free throw line. 1 right (B) same but with ball.
  • 1/2 (C) players under the basket. 1 player C sets up on free throw line. Helpside defense stands.
  • This player defends striker coming in from left (A) to get ball from passer (B) right.
  • Stealing ball, 1 v 1. Attacker scores, back to A. If they do not score, back to B.
  • B joins C after passing.

  • Two men around the bucket for defense
  • Three attackers:
  • Attacker 1 passes the ball to attacker 2 
  • All three attackers pass the ball around until one sees a gap and can get into the bucket
  • He adjusts the ball and tries to score
  • Up to 5 points, then switch roles and the attacker who has scored least stays in the attack.

Requirements:

  • Stopping two feet together, pivoting, lay-up and jumpshot must be known


Aim:

  • When passing, jump towards the ball with feet coming down correctly to start the next movement. (pivoting, start dribble)


Organization:

1. Coach gives passes from position 1, alternating left and right from under the basket. Give passes where jump-to-the-ball applies.

2. Player starts under the basket (2 groups of 5 to 6 players, of which two/group have a ball) ==> fast; explosive exercise.

3. Run to cone under the basket and quickly pushes himself away towards the cone at spot 2 or 3.

4. Makes movement from the cone to the ball to get the pass and perform a jump-to-the-ball.

5. After getting the ball pivot and attack towards the basket (first lay-up, then shot)

6. After finishing, change sides and pass the ball


Teaching points:

  • Rapid explosive movement when running free
  • correct ball acceptance (show hands) and foot placement
  • pivoting and fast attacks without running errors
