Break up your team into teams of three. This is basically a 3 on 3 game. The team on offense must pass 3 times before taking a shot. All passes must be a bounce pass unless the pass is dumped in the post. The team on offense can score 1 point on a made basket, fouled in the act of shooting and an offensive rebound. The defense can score a point on a defensive charge. On the charge the defense now gets the ball and the offense is off and the next team of three is on.


This drill works better with 9-12 players and should be done only on half court. The coaches should act as referee's and call it close. Look for the bounce pass always. I have taken this a step further and made all the offensive players catch the ball in a triple threat position, if they don't call it a turnover.

Number of Players:



Call the games close like game situations, you will have teams continually coming on and off the floor. This creates competition and game discipline situations.
