This drill utilizes the entire court and the whole team. It improves passing abilities greatly. Every person must be able to lead the sprinting runner. Teamwork and speed also are required.
4 players will need to be placed next to the out of bounds line free throw extended (1 player at each side and end). 2 players must be placed at center court back to back (One facing the scorers table and one facing the other way). The rest of the team must be split up evenly (2 groups) and each group must line up under each basket. The first player in each line will have a ball. He (A) will then pass to the man standing free throw line extended at his right. That player will then pass it back to (A) while A is sprinting towards the opposite hoop. Once A gets the ball back he will immediately pass it to the man at half court. The man at half court will pass it back to A very quickly, A then passes the ball to the player who is standing at the free throw line extended area. That man will pass it back to A where he will make a lay-up. The next man in line will rebound the ball and do the same thing at the opposite end of the court. As you can see, the drill will operate much faster than I have explained it but it is the most helpful drill for any level of basketball as it improves passing greatly.
At least 12
If a lay-up is missed, add a sprinting penalty to be performed by the team after the drill.
5 minutes is usually enough time.
Rotate passers after 2 1/2 minutes.
