A coach stands at the FT line. Two players are standing on the box on each side of the lane. Player dribbles to coach, full speed, head up, from half court. At top of circle, comes to a jump stop with both feet available for pivot. One of the post players raises his hand as a signal to get him the ball (don't shout 'ball.' In this drill we want to make sure the dribbler is developing court vision). The dribbler pivots off the appropriate foot, spinning around and sealing off the coach (i.e. drop step around and seal on hip), and makes a 'step around' bounce pass with the correct hand to the post player's outside who then drop steps for an uncontested lay-up. The passer follows up his pass and takes shooter's place. After you shoot, go back to line at half-court.



Number of Players:





#1-#3 guards at half-court, two lines of #4 and #5 on low boxes.

For more running, two lines of #4 and #5 at 28' marks, do same drill out of a fast-break mode.

Have coaches at both FT lines and make it a full court drill with two players on box and a line out of bounds (ob) on each end. After the far end scores, player at front of OB line on opposite end speed dribbles the length of the court, jump stops, spins and passes. Scorer goes to end of near OB line.

Emphasize dribbling with weak hand by putting lines on left side of basket.
