This drill is a great conditioning drill that works many aspects of the fast break. You need six cones to keep the players in proper lanes. It requires all four players to run the full length of the floor up and back two times. The cones should be set at the top of the key and each wing on each end of the floor.


The post player throws the ball off the board and goes for the rebound hard.

A point guard is ready on the baseline and sprints out to the top of the key as soon as the post throws the ball for the rebound.

Two wings sprint the sidelines outside of the cones looking for the pass up court from the point.

The wing that recieves the pass makes the decision to go directly back to the point, cross court to the opposite wing (which requires a perfect pass), or take the lay up without a dribble. If the pass goes back to the point he has to make the decision on who is in position for the easy lay up.

The wings cross and sprint the opposite sideline as before

The post is sprinting to the other end of the floor to get the rebound out of the net before it hits the ground.

Repeat the sequence until four lay ups have been shot.

Number of Players:



The point goes around the cone at the top of the key.

The wings take a 45 degree angle from the cone to the hoop.

The post sprints never letting the ball hit the floor.

Stress communication on each pass and crisp passes up the floor.

Never allow the ball to hit the floor.
