Basketball drills for warming-up

Ad

Triplets with a ball.

  • Trainer throws ball against the board, team must rebound and choose outlet.
  • Trainer blocks off one side so they have to pick and ask for the ball!
  • Outlet dribbles to the middle and 3X0 completes with a layup (pace.)


  • Depending on the level of the U12 explain: outlet, ask for the ball (hands), fill in lines and run attack.
  • Trainer can be disruptive at the 2x1, pay attention to left and right handed dribbling.


Divide the group into pairs.

Passing to the other side:

  • First 2-groups fit around the whole field.
  • 3 meter distance, no running
  • Variant: at the halfway line:
    • Player on the inside dribbles to the head of the bucket and passes to the player on the outside who scores with lay-up/shot.
  • Player who has passed runs to the other sideline and receives outlet, passes back to the center line and again shot/layup
  • Left and right side


Important that they do not run during the pass and that the players change (inside and outside).

Players start at the bottom of the ring in 2 lines.

1) On the right side of the ring, players make a zig-zag run with the ball, changing direction at each cone (cross, behind the back, through the legs and spin move).

  • Once at the center line, the player dribbles with the left hand towards the cones #1 here you do a backup dribble and go with a cross-over past the cones and finish with a lay-up.


2) On the left side of the ring, players do a short/explosive zig-zag and sprint from the last pawn to the center line.

  • Once at the center line, they dribble right-handed to cones #2, here they do a backup dribble and crossover past the cones and finish with lay-up.


  • At cones #1 and #2 you can vary with crossover, behind the back, through the legs and spin move
  • Finish with lay-up or short distance shot

  • The players start from one side of the ring with a zig-zag stepslide to the centre line.
  • From the cone at the half way line, they sprint to the goal, receive the pass and finish with a lay-up.
  • After the lay-up the players take their own rebound and take the place of the passer.
  • With enough players this exercise can also be done on a full court.
