Drill begins as 4 on 4. This is a competitive drill that emphasizes offensive fundamentals and team defense. Coach can select the number of points to win. Winner stays and faces team which is out. Team waiting maybe shooting FT's running or working on ballhandling. Whichever team has most wins after 10-15 minutes cheers for other two teams who must run sprints.

- 1 point for a basket
- 1 point for a pass in the paint
- 1 point for dribbling into the paint
- 1 point for an offensive rebound
- 1 point for 1st defensive rebound
- 2 points for a turnover
- Charge = automatic win
Winner gets to choose offense or defense.
12 -- 3 groups of 4
Encourage communication on defense. We force the ball outside to the corners. Second foul is point for offense.
This is a great team drill and the defense sees a variety of situations to defend including screens, cutters, and penetration. Our kids really pick it up here and we try and make all of our drills competitve.
This can also be done in the full-court. We use it however in the half court.
You could possibly award points for transition baskets or stops.
