The players assume a basic three lines drills position on the baseline. The central line one with the ball (offensive player) and those lateral without the ball (defensive players). On the coach's signal the first player with the ball (central line) dribbles the length of the court for a lay-up at the opposite basket. On a second signal from the coach (two or three seconds later), the first player from each of the two lateral lines sprints to stop the ball. After a make or a missed shot the two defenders immediately become offensive players, and the former offensive player sprints back to become the defender in a 2 on 1 defensive situation. After a score the two former defenders must inbound the ball under the basket they have defended.



Number of Players:



Emphasize speed in this drill.


The lateral paleyrs start when the ball handler reaches the free throw line.

Limit the number of dribbles by the offensive player in the 1 on 2 situation to 5 or 6.

In the returning 2 on 1 situation don't permit the offensive players to dribble, only pass to score.
