2 single lines facing one another. About 10 to 12 feet between the lines. One ball at the front of one line.
Man with the ball passes the ball across to the man in front of the other line and follows his pass to put defensive pressure on the pass receiver. Receiver cannot dribble and is attempting to make a successful pass across to the other linewithout the ball being touch or deflected by the defender. The defender is 'mirroring' the ball with his hands and trying to deflect the pass or at least touch it.
10-12 players, 1-on-1 at a time
Emphasize to the defender to put maximum ball pressure on the passer without reaching and fouling. 'Mirror' the ball and harass the passer. The passer must learn to use ball fakes, eye fakes, his pivot foot and proper passing technique to make a successful pass around under or over the defender.
If the defender touches the pass, the passer does one push-up, and if not, the defender does one push-up.
Define a fixed area with lines and allow one dribble. The receiver is allowed to move only one step from his original spot to receive the ball. Defender can also get a five second count on the passer.
