  • 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

To improve shooting, the players practice the movement first without the actual basket. 

  • They stand in position with knees slightly bent,
  • hold a basketball with the strong hand under the ball and the other hand behind it. 
  • The players bring the ball to the shot zone (in front of and above the head). 
  • Next, the players push the basketball in the desired direction after which the hand and wrist move downwards (gooseneck). 
  • If this goes well, the players can try to shoot in the direction of the basket.
  • They can vary with place and distance.


The players practice the lay-up. 

  • They divide themselves over 2 rows, 1 on the left side of the basket and 1 on the right side of the basket. 
  • The first player of each row dribbles to the basket with the strong hand. 
  • Then the player takes 2 steps, first with the strong leg, then with the weaker leg. 
  • The player takes a jump with the strong leg and tries to throw the ball against the square on the board after which it ends up in the basket. 
  • The player catches the ball and dribbles to the row on the other side and then ends at the back of the row to try it from the other side.
