Set 4 players up, 1 in the frontcourt between 3/4 mark and baseline line on the sideline and one on the same spot, other end of the court. The remaining two players set up other side of the court. Four spots need to be filled.
Start on the right side. Passer throws ball off back board to start drill, ball side player yells outlet, she catches and turns to the outside, as this is happening the next player up the same side line, v-cut's away from the ball, and times it, to come back to the pass, she calls 'ball'. Never lose sight of the ball, even when they are cutting hard away, always have target hand and see the ball. She goes in for the lay-up, then outlets it to the next side, the outlet person needs to go away hard from the ball by v-cutting then coming to the pass. Key is to always see the ball even though you are cutting away. This is a continuous drill.
8, best to have 12.
Works on seeing the ball when they are running the lanes, v-cuts to get up, target hand for passer, pivoting to the outside in the back court (prep for a trapping situation), works on passing long passes, don't need to dribble. I allow, one or two dribbles if the next receiver is not ready as if it where game tempo, so we push the ball hard up the court. We have to make a certain amount of lay-ups and perform all the skills correctly. Right now I only have 9 players due to injuries and this drill will not only work on skill but also get them in shape.
Work on both sides of the court.
Seeing the ball, Passing, coming back to the pass, lay-ups
