Start with players in the corners of the baseline. Play starts with the ball at the foul line. The Coach rolls, passes, puts the ball down, or throws the ball upward toward the opposite goal and on the command 'go' players sprint toward the ball and play one -on -one at the basket. After the offense scores or the defense gets a rebound, the defense now becomes the offense and plays one-on-one coming back toward the goal at the starting point.


Put players in the deep corners of the baseline where it meets the sideline. Position a coach at the foul line or toward the baseline to throw the ball. The coach can use several types of passes, rolls, or 'tricks' to challenge the players. Emphasize to the defense the importance of getting to the lane or paint to play one-on-one.

Number of Players:



This drill is a challenging drill and is fun for JV and High school players. Let them choose their partners and you'll find them sprinting to get the ball first. It becomes a good drill for conditioning, one-on-one play, and transition. Also they have to learn to pick up the ball and try and beat their opponent to the basket, and then quickly sprint back to the paint to play defense.


You could add offensive players coming back to simulate two-on-one or three-on-one fast breaks.


Quickness, control of the ball, transition
