There are four players in the middle one on each corner of the lane. The two players on the left side face the left sideline and the two players on the right face the right sideline. Outside of those four people there is another four people. Those four all have a ball and each one is facing one of the inside four people about 8 feet apart.X. O1 O2 .X
X. O3 O4 .X _____________ baseline
This is the set up.
The X's pass the ball into the O's the O's pass it back then move. The O's which are on the baseline pivot right and go to the top spot on the opposite side. The O's who are already on the top shuffle down to the baseline spot. The X's then pass the ball to the O's they pass back and the drill is repeated.X. O4 O3 .X
This is the way it should be after the first rotation.X. O1 O2 .X
Make sure your inside players are defensive shuffling from spot to spot.
Stress the proper passing form.
For every mishandled pass 10 pushups on the fingertips (As a team).
Instead of using 4 game balls, make one of the balls weighted and another on bigger.
Passing, Communication, defensive shuffling
