To begin the Jacksonville transition drill, station three players spread out on the baseline, and an additional two players on each sideline. The three players in the middle will execute a three-man weave down-court on trip #1. While at the same time, the two defenders on the sidelines will sprint from baseline to the opposite baseline, and return to the original end of the floor in a two man tandem defensive set. The other three players who executed the three man weave will rebound the made lay-up, and pass the ball back and forth to the opposite basket, with one player in the middle and one player on the left wing, and the other on the right wing. Upon entering the scoring area, the three offensive players will execute a 3 on 2 scoring opportunity. After scoring, or a rebound by the two defensive players, trip#3 will take place with the two defenders becoming offensive players, and the middle man of the three original offensive players sprinting back on defense to defend the 2x1 transition phase of the drill. The drill ends when the two offensive players score, or the one defensive player secures the rebound.


Five lines can be formed on the baseline to begin the drill. The three inside lines begin by initiating the three-man weave.

The two outside lines will be defensive players to initiate the drill

The two defenders must communicate who has the top defensive spot, and who has the back defensive spot.

Emphasize proper fundamentals: passing, catching, shooting, rebounding, etc.
