Drill is a continuous 1/2 court 3 on 3 drill with players going from offense to defense. Players must move without the ball on offense then quickly find their man on defense. Any phase of the game can be emphasized--offense, defense,
rebouding, passing etc.
12 players get into 3 lines with 4 in each line at the half line facing the basket. One line is in the middle and the other 2 out wide on the sides. Alternate colors or skins/shirts in each line. The first player in each line steps out to be on defense--(3 skins). The next 3 players (3 shirts) will be on offense and attack the basket 3 on 3.
The offense will try to score by screening the ball, screening away from the ball or give and go cuts.
The defense of course will try to stop the offense by creating a turnover or rebounding a missed shot. When the defense rebounds a missed shot or steals the ball they must outlet to the next player in the outside line who then passes to the middle line. If the offense scores the defense must step out of bounds and throw the pass to the outside line. When the ball gets back to the middle the next 3 players attack the basket.
The players who were just on offense must turn and defend the new offensive team. You keep alternating from offense to defense. After playing defense you run wide off the court and get back into the lines at the halfline.
9, 12 or 15
The offense should attack as soon as the ball is in the middle line. The new defensive team must then talk and find a man to guard. Focus on good outlet passes and moving without the ball. The defense must fight screens and play position defense.
