Set up two poles facing each other at about 7 meters. The player with the ball stands to the right of the pole, the player without the ball stands to the left of the pole about 1.5 meters in front of the pole. The person with the ball throws to the person without the ball and makes a pass ball. After every pass ball there is a change of roles.


The following run through ball exercise combines practice of the run through ball with fitness training.

The exercise is done on 1 basket, with 4 players and 2 balls. Two players stand under the basket without the ball, one player left in front of the basket with the ball and one player right in front of the basket with the ball.

Player 1 walks up to the middle. He or she chooses a side and gets the ball. Splitter 1 plays the ball inside and makes a through ball. The attacker catches the ball, and fills the empty spot. The person in front without the ball runs through the middle to the basket, and the exercise starts again.

When the exercise is clear, you can choose to make it more about speed. If you choose to do this, the player who throws the ball from the front to the ascending player goes after his ball, and as soon as he or she is in the middle, he or she runs after the person who throws the through ball. As soon as the latter has taken his through ball, the new person runs up and the exercise begins again.
