player 1 and player 2 stand 3-4 meters apart. player 1 has the ball. player 3 is the defensive player, and stands between players 1 and 2.

player 3 guards player 1 and tries to deflect the pass from player 1 to player 2.

player 1 works on ball fakes and steps through the defense to make the pass.

When player 2 receives the ball, player 3 hustles over to contest player 2's pass to player 1. player 2 must wait until player 3 is on him before he attempts a pass.

player 3 stays in the middle and defends both passes until he gets three deflections.

Players rotate so that all three defend the passes.

Number of Players:



All passes should be hard an crisp, using either one or both hands. The players are encouraged to pivot widely to escape the defender.

In addition to being a good drill for learning passing under pressure, this is also a great conditioning drill for the one defending the passes.
