Each player will throw a baseball pass, catch a baseball pass, shoot a lay-up (or jumper) and work on their speed dribble. If done correctly and with intensity conditioning will also take place.


There are two lines at the baseline corners of one end. (Line A on the right and Line B on the left.)

Players A2, A3, A4, B1, B2 and B3 will all have a ball. Player A1 will sprint towards half court. Player B1, standing one step on the court, will throw a leading baseball pass to A1. A1 will catch the ball, start dribbling to the opposite end without traveling and will shoot a lay-up (or jump shot if coach wants that). A1 will get his/her own rebound and speed dribbles out of bounds to line B. At half court A1 will pass the ball to the next player in line B that needs a ball.

As soon as B1 passes to A1 he/she sprints towards half court and receives a pass from A2. B1 does the same thing A1 did.

As soon as a player passes the ball they sprint toward half court in order to receive their pass. This continues for either a set number of reps, a set time, or a set number of made baskets.

Number of Players:



Do not let the receiver knock the ball down into a dribble. Make them catch it.

Do not let them travel before the throwing the pass or after receiving the pass.

We have our girls call the name of the person they are passing to.


You can change the type of pass and/or the type of shoot.

I am sure their are several ways to improve this drill.


Lay-ups or jumper and passing
