Player 2 passes to player 3 and follows their pass. Player 3 passes to player 4 and follows their pass. Player 4 passes to player 5 and follows their pass. Player 5 drives hard to the basket for lay-up, only one dribble (two for beginners) allowed. Players rebound own shots and hand-off ball to next player in line, then move to the end of the line. Drill continues. Use two balls at once. Enter second ball just after first ball is passed from position 3 to position 4. Reverse the direction (for left-hand lay-ups). Vary the types of passes to be made (e.g. chest, bounce, overhead). Vary type of lay-up (e.g. reverse, two-foot stop into power lay-up etc.). Take short jump shot off dribble rather than lay-up. Run from half court corners to increase passing distance and run All passes to be hard and accurate. Call the passers name and "show ten fingers" to receive the ball.

5 Drill Number: 2. Cincinnati - Passing, Offensive Transition Park Orchards Basketball Club - Drills Book Players form two lines at half-court. One line in centre of court, the other near one sideline. One player is on free-throw line. First player in line at centre court must have ball. Player 2 in centre line passes to player at free-throw line to player 1 whilst player 3 on sideline sprints the outside lane. After receiving the pass player 1 pivots and passes to player 3 cutting to the basket. Player 3 receives pass and performs a lay-up. Player 3 continues out opposite side of court while player 1 rebounds the ball and outlets to player 3 who takes one or two dribbles and passes to the next player in centre line who doesn't have a ball. Player 3 goes to end of centre line, player 1 goes to end of side line and player 2 moves down to free-throw line to pass / rebound on next rotation. Move sideline to other side of court. Use two or more balls. Sprint the lane. Drive the lay-up hard. Pass the ball in front of the cutter so they don't have to stop. 5

6 Drill Number: 3. V-Cut Shooting - Cutting, Shooting, Offence Players form two lines at the wing spots (three-point line at free-throw line extended). Player 2 in first line has a ball. Player 3 in the second line also has a ball. Player 1 in second line makes a v-cut towards baseline and posts up on low block to receive pass from player 2 (diagram A). Player 1 pivots and shoots. Player 2 v-cuts to opposite block to receive pass from 3. Player 1 rebounds own shot and passes out to next player in line opposite where they came from player 4 in diagram B. A Player 2 pivots, shoots and rebounds own shot. Drill continues side to side, with players v-cutting, posting up on low block, pivoting, shooting, rebounding, passing to opposite line, defending the pass and moving to the end of the line.

7 Drill Number: 4. Chair Dribble - Dribbling, Lay-ups Set up five chairs (or other obstacles) around the three-point line as shown in the diagram. Players form two lines in the baseline corners of the court. All players have a ball. Players dribble in a zigzag pattern around the chairs with both lines operating at once and with both lines going to the outside of their respective first chair. Players finish off at the other end with a lay-up and then move to the end of the other line. Whilst the drill can get confusing it will surely help the players to learn to keep their heads up and to dribble and shoot under pressure. Finish off with a reverse lay-up. Finish off with a power (two-foot stop) lay-up. Finish off with a short jump shot. Specify players can only use weak hand to dribble. Specify a dribble move at each chair (e.g. crossover).

8 Drill Number: 5. Shell Drill - Team Defence Park Orchards Basketball Club - Drills Book Four players assume offensive positions at guard and wing or corner positions. Four players assume defensive positions based on the following rules, If your man has the ball, play him - push to sideline, no penetration. If your man is one pass away - play deny stance in passing lane. If your man is two passes away - play in the key in help position. If your man is more than two passes away - play on the split line in help position. On ball movement all defensive players move to correct position. On receiving pass offence must always catch and face. When first teaching shell drill have offence hold ball for two second count before passing. Rotate offence to defence. The shell drill should be run in the following progression. Build up to latter stages over number of sessions. Stationary offence - defence allow passes. This stage is so defenders get used to movement into correct positions. Offence move (v-cuts and replace only) - defence allow passes. Offence move (v-cuts and replace only) - deny passes. Allow penetration only - defensive help. Allow offence to exchange positions. Allow screens. Live four-on-four. Depending upon the defensive emphasis you may want high defenders to sag and guard against penetration rather than denying pass. Jump to the ball - as pass is made - not once it gets there - "fly with the ball". See the ball and your man - point your pistols. Stance, stance, stance, stance - low, low, low, low. Must be lower than the player you are guarding. Correct footwork - slides, drop step, closeouts. Three main jobs are pressure on pass or shot, stop penetration, help your teammates. 8

Defensive footwork any direction (e.g. left or right slide, drop step and slide, retreat step, close out). Change hand position - coach might move ball around and have players trace ball, challenge shot etc. Visual cues may be better as it encourages players to keep their heads up. Have a player lead the others. Correct defensive stance. Stay low - no bobbing up and down. Keep head in middle of body. Keep head back - "nose behind toes".

Players in line 2 are passing to line 4 and back. As players get to free-throw line extended at opposite end outside players cut to basket for pass and lay-up. Inside and outside players exchange lines and players return back down court in similar fashion. For younger players you may decide to make it easier and remove the traffic option and have players pass to lines next to them. Alternatively, you might like to have lines 1 and 4 exchange longer passes and lines 2 & 3 exchanges shorter ones. Do it a full speed, on the run, not stop and go. Pass in front of a moving player.

Player 1 & Player 4 make a lay-up and rebound their shot. 2. Players 2 & 5 V-Cut away and come back to receive the pass from players 1 & 4 3. Players 3 & 6 V-Cut away and come back to receive the pass from players 2 & Players 1 & 4 replace players 2 & 5 who replace players 3 & 6 who go in for a lay-up Players 3 & 6 make their lay-up and rotation starts again. If there are more than 6 players have them line up under the basket at either end and rebound the lay-up and pass out. The players that make the lay-up go to the end of the line.

36 Drill Number: 34. Tennessee Shooting & Passing Park Orchards Basketball Club - Drills Book 5 Balls and 8 players are required for this drill. Players marked 1, 4, 5, 6 & 7 have balls at the start of the drill. We have a 3-man rush (1,2 & 3). When the ball gets just over the half court line the following cuts are made: 1: drives to the basketball for a lay-up. 2: flashes from to the low block (and receives pass from 5). 3: shoots across the elbow (and receives pass from 4). 80 makes in 3 minutes (3/3 conversions) for an elite group Adjust the time and number of baskets for your teams skill Do a line sprint for each shot they are short and a push up for each miss. Penalties are done as a group. On the return leg, 1 collects own rebound & the drill continues down the floor with 4 & 5 stepping up. 2 & 3 collect own rebounds then replace spots vacated by 4 & 5. The drill continues in this fashion. We always set targets for this drill and penalties apply. 36

37 Drill Number: 35. Three-Man Weave - Offensive Transition, Passing & Receiving Players form three lines at baseline. Player in middle line has ball. The ball is passed in a weave pattern up the court. Players cut behind the person they have passed to (see diagram). The player who receives ball near edge of offensive key makes a hard drive to basket. The other two players form a rebounding triangle and any missed shots are put back after the rebound. After the made basket, the ball is grabbed, the player steps out of bounds and the drill is repeated back down the court. 1. Players can wait at end of court (rather than coming back) for rest of players in line to come down court and then all take in turns to come back in opposite direction. This way, the next three players can start when the previous three cross halfway. 2. Specify the types of passes to be made. Sprint down the court. Run the lanes - go wide. Communicate - call for the ball. Pass in front of the moving player. No travelling. Ball does not hit the floor. 37

38 Drill Number:

39 Games Game Number: 1. Dribble Knock Out Dribbling This game helps players learn to protect the ball with their body and to dribble under pressure. Each player has a ball and must dribble continuously while attempting to knock the other players ball away from them, out of bounds, or past the 3 point line. Vary the court space used depending upon the size of your group. Any player who cannot maintain their dribble or goes outside of the designated area is out and should step out of the designated area. As number of players reduces further restrict the playing area (e.g. key, circle, top half of circle). Last player remaining wins. Specify which hand they have to use to dribble with. Players use only their weak hand to dribble. Keep the Dribble alive at all times Dribble low to make it difficult for the ball to be knocked away Keep moving around so you are an hard target Players must maintain a dribble at all times. Head up! Fingertip control - use the wrist - push the ball to the floor. Low dribbling stance - protection stance. 39

40 Game Number: 2. Circle Knock Out Dribbling place players as shown. Have them start back to back. Object is to stay within circle, protect ball with body and dribble ball, while trying to knock other players ball out. Have a " playoff" down to the last one to see who wins. 40

41 Game Number: 3. Bean Bag Game Players must be able to continue dribbling the ball while picking up and dropping bean bags. Using half court place one team at centre court, and one team at the corners of the baseline. Each team has one ball. Place beanbags in key circle in a pile. On coaches command one player from each team dribbles into the key, while still dribbling the players must bend down and pick up a beanbag each. They must then dribble back to their team while still dribbling deposit the beanbag and give the ball to their next team member. This process continues until all bean bags are gone, then they are able to steal bean bags from the other teams. After two minutes the team with the most beanbags wins. NOTE: Only one bean bag is able to be taken at a time Add in more teams. Add more players into each team. Extend time of each game. Player must dribble with non-preferred hand Player must make a crossover move or a number of crossover moves while retrieving and returning (e.g. normal crossover, between the legs, etc.) Create an obstacle course to retrieve and return rather than just a straight line Make sure all players keep dribbling all the time. 41

42 Game Number: 4. Dribble Racing This will help your players dribble the ball faster, and your players will gain more control of the ball. Line up cones/poles all the way up you gym. Split the Players into 2 teams. Put both teams on the same wall in 2 lines and give the first player in each line a ball. They have to dribble the ball around the pylons and back, and then shoot to score. If they miss they have to shoot until they get it in and then pass the ball to the next person in line. This is repeated the whole team has completed a lap with a made basket. The losing team has to do laps, push-ups, sit up etc. Vary the number of cones/poles Increase the number of laps each player has to complete Game Number: 5. Get Hold of the Ball Youngsters (especially girls) are easily intimidated by more experienced opponents who simply grab the ball out of their hands. This drill makes the player more determined to keep hold of the ball. One player takes a firm hold of the ball and a second one tries to pull it out of her hands. Instead of one player, two players may pull at the ball. The first player should hold the ball in their hands. Don't allow the player to put their arms around the ball. Teach to RIP the ball out Pivot to get the ball 42

43 Game Number: 6. numbers Get the players to lie face down on the floor along the baseline. The coach then gives them a number to each player. Number them 1 to how many players there are. The coach then places the ball on the floor and calls out two numbers. Those players jump up and go for the ball. They then play 0ne on one to score. The first one to get the lay-up is the winner. Place a time limit of 10 second to score. Call out more than 2 numbers The coach can roll or throw the ball for the players to chase Have the players face away from the ball so they can not see where the coach has placed it Have two balls one for each player ( this will allow for the weaker players to at least get some shots away for younger kids) Drive hard to the basket 43
