This is a good drill for developing game skills in a single drill. It is done on a full court with three teams of four. Here I'll use Red Team, Blue Team, and Black Team. Divide the players up evenly regarding skill and position.

I find that the drill works best if you match up your least skilled post players with your most skilled guards, and vice versa.


The drill is started like a half court game between Black and Blue, Black with possession, Blue on defense, Red down the other end of the court. Black and Blue play until one of three things happens: 1) Black turns the ball over, 2) Blue gets a defensive rebound, or 3) Black makes a basket. If 1 or 2 happens, Blue brings the ball across half court and plays Red like above. Black waits down the other end of the court. If 3 happens (Black scores), Black takes the ball out and brings it back and plays Red in half court. Basically, if the defense gets possession, they bring it across half court; if the offense gets possession, they keep trying to score. Keep track of baskets and see which team can put the longest streak together (ie, stay on offense the longest).

Number of Players:



This drill keeps the players busy and hustling throughout.

The team that makes the fewest number of shots runs two suicides, the middle team - half court suicide. The team with the shortest streak runs one suicide, the middle team-- lap around the court. We usually play without fouls,except for fouling when shooting.


One way to start this drill is for you to stand at the free throw line and toss up a shot. Play continues as if you were a Black player in the above scenario. (i.e, if Black gets the rebound, they continue trying to score at that basket. If you score, they bring it across half court. If Blue rebounds it, they bring it across half court).
