Five players (offense) moving within the three-point circle. The coach puts the ball into play and then counts off ten passes the tenth receiver then squares up and shoots. If the basket is made then the ball is put into play from the baseline. If it is no basket, then the ball is rebounded and the count starts again. If any player stops moving the count starts again with the ball from the sideline. Three seconds in the key also cancels the count. Run the drill for either five or ten baskets.


After the first run through, add one defense player to get the players used to finding their team players.

Then add two etc until it becomes five on five. Initially the defense does not attempt to take the ball, but simply occupy space on the court. Now go to full defense to force the turnover.

Number of Players:

Five to start


Get the team to communicate on the court with voice or hand signals.

The last counted player has to practice good spot shooting technique.

As condition levels increase, insist on a faster drill.
