I observed this drill at a recent basketball camp. It's a super drill but very physically demanding. The lecturer stated that this drill is used by the Chicago Bulls daily.


Equipment: 1 Basketball, 2 chairs and 4 colored scrimmage vest per team.

Drill begins with ball being placed in bounds at halfcourt Team A and B are on one end of the court. Two players from Team C are sitting in chairs at half-court and other two players are tandem at the other basket.

Team A places ball in play trying to score against Team B. On change of possession (either made basket by Team A) or Team B (steals or rebounds missed shot), Team B transitions into front court against Team C.

Team A which lost possesion of the ball, transitions 2 players to the chairs and 2 remaining for defense.

The two players from Team C who are sitting in chairs cant get out of chairs until ball crosses halfcourt.

After ball crosses half-court, these player must run to center court touch hands. After touching, both players transition to help other Team C team members stop Team B.

If you have more than 12 players, you can rotate another set of players in when one team scores a predetermined number of baskets.

Number of Players:

Minum 3 sets of 4 players (12 players) Maximum of 20 players


Stress offense moves without the ball and players maintain proper spacing.

Designate which 2 players from each team will be players in chairs.

No Out-of-bound boundaries.

Once team has possesion and is going opposite direction, offensive players cant try to regain possesion.

Encourage physical and aggressive play.

Coach controls play by calling fouls and tie ups.
