This is a continuous motion drill, which emphasizes defensive rebounding, outlet passes and fast break skills. In the drill, three players work on defensive rebounding, pivoting and outlet passing and three other players work on fast break offense or defense.


Three players stand in rebounding position under basket. Three other players are positioned between the foul line and mid-court, with one in the center and the other two on the wings. A coach throws the ball off the basket and the three rebounders fight for the rebound. The player who gets the rebound pivots and makes an outlet pass to one of the two wings. The other two rebounders try to stop the outlet pass. The two wings work a 2 on 1 break against the player in the center, who defends and tries to disrupt the break. The groups then switch roles, with the fast break unit becoming the rebounders under the far basket and the rebounders becoming the fast break unit.

Number of Players:



Emphasize key fundamentals, including good rebounding position; the importance of pivoting to evade defenders and to get a good passing lane and crisp passes by the rebounder and the fast breaking unit.


Can be run with additional sets of three players. In this variation, the fast break unit goes off the court after the fast break, the rebounders become the fast break unit and new players become rebounders.


Rebounding, pivoting, outlet passes and fast break
