This is a great drill for any level. It will work on conditioning, lay-ups and passing in the transition game. Teams that like to beat the defense back down the floor for easy baskets will find this drill valuable.


Split teams into two equal lines. One line stands out of bounds near the outlet area. The other line stands under the basket with two balls. Player 1 under the basket bounces the ball off the backboard, rebounds it and fires a crisp outlet pass to the player 2 in the outlet line.

Player 2 dribbles the ball to the middle of the floor down to the opposite foul line. Player 1 fills in the lane near the sideline on the outlet side of the floor and sprints to the block under the opposite basket, receives a pass from player 2 and makes the lay-up.

After player 1 makes his lay-up, he rebounds his make and jumps out of bounds to inbound the ball. Player 2 the sprints up the floor (on the opposite side of the court as the first lay-up) near the sideline. Player 2 must look back to the ball and receive a full court pass from player 1 and then make the lay-up.

Players 1 and 2 switch lines after their first rotation through the drill.

As soon as player 1 and 2 reach the first lay-up point, the next two players should start their rotation through the drill. This will allow for continuous motion and conditioning.

Number of Players:



Make sure players stay close to the sideline and make a good 90 degree cut to the block. This will allow him to be in proper lay-up position.

The outlet man must take two hard steps back toward the outlet pass to avoid having the outlet pass picked off.

The full court pass should reach the sprinting player so no dribble is required before the lay-up.


Add defensive players to the drill at the outlet, lay-up, and out of bounds pressure areas.
