    • Player 1 plays player 2, and goes out.
    • Player 2 passes the ball on to player 3 who shoots.
    • Player 2 cuts in to catch the ball.
    • After catching the ball, you play the shooter again, who in turn plays the next player to get a shot, etc.
  • The aim is to move well, and to react well to the rebound action from space.
  • Take 2 shots from motion and 1 walkthrough ball:
    • Intent is to get 21 (or more) with your basket.
  • Scoring a shot counts for 2 points.
  • Scoring a walkthrough ball counts for 1 point.
  • Not hitting a basket means 1 point.
  • If you end up on 11, you have to start again from 0.
  • Passing to and stepping out of bounds to take the shot.
  • Ditto but jumping in to the shot.
  • Passing to the next player to get the shot.
  • Shooter with his back to the declarer, declarer shouts 'YES' and plays to the shooter.
  • Idem, but this time playing next to the archer to jump in.

  • Depending on the number of players per basket, the assignments may change:
    • per 2 it is simply 1 against 1, and your goal is to be the first to get 3 points.
    • Per 3, we have shooter 1 who does the assignment, if passed, both opponents must undo the point.
    • If only one of the opponents completes the counter mission, the shooter gets 1 point. If none of the opponents completes the counter mission, the shooter gets 2 points.
    • Your goal is to be the first to get 4 points.
  • Make 2 out of 5 distance shots (6 m.);
    • Then you get one chance of 4 m.
    • Which you must score to earn a point.
    • Your opponent can undo this point by also scoring the 4 m. chance.
  • score 3 out of 5 short chances (4 m.);
    • then score 2 penalty shots (out of 2) to earn a point.
    • Your opponent can undo this by scoring both penalty shots as well.
  • Score 2 out of 5 shots from behind the basket (5 m.);
    • then score 3 walk-throughs (out of 3 chances) to earn a point.
    • Your opponent can undo this by also scoring 3 walk-through balls.
  • score 1 of 5 distance shots (8 m.);
    • then score 3 out of 4 chances under the basket.
    • Your opponent can undo this by scoring 3 out of 3 chances under the basket 2.
  • The ball is played to a moving lady at about 4 meters.
  • The person passing on determines whether the ball is placed to the left or to the right of the lady.
  • The passing must be tight and at eye level of the shooter. score 10x pp
  • Next, a defender comes to stand in front of the take-off lady.
  • Now you see that, if you do not keep the ball up, it will be difficult for the receiver to see it
  • So if you hold the ball up high, she can see which way you are going to pass and can therefore react properly
  • If she does not get free, check the position of the defender, make sure you are playable and the person taking the ball steps outagain
  • Again with the defender, but now you pretend to throw.
  • For the receiver, this is the signal that she must come for the breakthrough. score 10x pp

This is an isolated drill to practice dynamic rebounding.

  • Players have to estimate from the movement where the ball will end up and grab it as fast as possible.
  • The ball starts under the basket and is thrown to the player in front of the post.
  • He shoots.
  • The player in front of the post runs to the cap and back and tries to catch the ball within 1 bounce.
  • When the rebounder has succeeded in catching the ball after at most one bounce, he can shoot again.
  • Move the cap further away.
  • Challenge players to catch the ball without a bounce.
  • You will do this task in pairs.
  • Use a basket for each pair.
  • Put 4 hats around the basket in a square about 1.5 meters from the basket. (the basket is in the middle)
  • Stand in between the 2 hats in front of the basket.
  • Shoot to score.
  • The person under the basket names a colour and you tap on that colour.
  • Go back between the 2 hats in front of the basket.
  • If you have scored, you don't have to run to a colour.
  • Do this until someone has scored 5.

Rules explain:

  • The person taking it stands with 1 foot exactly behind the dot and the other foot stands behind the perpendicular line on the center line, from the dot.
  • Everyone stands outside the imaginary line.
  • Attackers stand 2.5 metres from each other.
  • Defenders stand 2.5 metres from the dot, but do not have to.
  • When person with ball moves, defenders may enter circle, attackers only when ball has been touched by person or is outside circle.
  • Persons under the post have their feet on the same side of the post.
  • An attacker or defender may not place his foot between those of the opponent.
  • Defender always stands between attacker and post, except under the post when attacker is against the post.
