I will develop the drill for 5 on 5 on 5. Make sure that 5 are shirts, 5 are one color and 5 are an off color or skins.

5 on offense and 5 on defense at one basket while five more wait on offense at the other end of the court.

After playing defense and outleting the ball the 5 defensive men stay on their end of the court and become offense.


The 5 on offense will work the ball for a shot.

Whether they make or miss the ball is outleted by the defense to the coach.

The offensive players must retreat quickly and pick up the 5 offensive players on the other end of the court.

The 5 offensive players receive the ball from the coach and try to score.

The defensive players must rebound and outlet the ball to the coach who then passes the ball to the other 5 who are waiting to score at the other end of the court.

The 5 defensive players get back and the drill continues.

Number of Players:

9, 12 or 15


The coach controls the pace of the drill. Players must protect the basket, find the ball, find open men and get pressure on the ball. (all the good rules of half court defense are observed)

They must Talk, talk, talk....make sure the players understand the importance of who to take and why they must play the ball/ protect the basket.

Offense must go for the rebound..not just retreat on defense


Work the drill for points or time limits.

Offense must pass the ball at least twice before they can shot.

Have offense touch the end line before they get back on defense.

Losing teams have to run, et. al...


Getting Back quickly, stopping the quick score, talking on D, et.al
