This drill is set up for fun conditioning and a challenge to make as many baskets in the time limit you decide.


Have 5 players stand under the basket at both ends of the court. Have a coach stand on the elbow on one end and another coach stand on the elbow at the other end. Have a player step out with a ball on both ends...this sets up the drill. Each player tosses the ball up against the backboard, rebounds it and makes a pass to the coach on the elbow. The player then takes off receiving a pass in a variety of situations; normally a shovel, or over head pass before they reach the half line...now both players on both ends are coming down hard to shoot a lay-up. Once the lay-up is made the group on the basket ends yell one..two ..three etc to keep count on both ends. The player next in line waits to rebound the ball off the make or off the miss they simply fire the ball back to the coach and they run looking for the pass. to go down and make their lay-up. We normally run it for 3 minutes and set a number or goal for the both ends in combination to make.. Depending on their skill level...my 7th grade girls shoot for 70 shots made in 3 minutes The varsity tries for 100 makes in 3 minutes...Make it a challenge they do a little more conditioning if they fail to reach their number total. Remember the total comes from both ends.. Every team I have coached loves this drill.

Number of Players:



Make this drill fun and the kids will enjoy doing it. It's good conditioning and a great drill for ball handling speed/ passing.


If you do not have two coaches line up your kids at the elbow 3 and say 4 under the basket. If you do this you'll need 14 players...Have the kids who make the pass go to the rebounding line and wait for their chance to run the lay-up.

Additionally, half way through the drill, throw another ball in the mix.
