2 teams of 5 players each, one team at half-court out of bounds and the other team under the opposite basket. The team at half-court is the defensive team and will play against the team under the basket.


The coach will gather the defense together and tell them what defense to play, without the offensive team hearing. He then walks to the offensive team and tosses them the ball and they start a fastbreak. When the defense sees the offense fast breaking, they run to their defensive positions and play goes on until there is a score or defense gets the ball.

Number of Players:



This drill is good for having the offense recognize what defense the opponent is playing and running the correct offensive set.

This drill is also good if your team has a tendency to play out of control. It allows them to back the ball out and make good decisions.
