3 Introduction Dear Reader, I would like to thank you for purchasing a copy of my Transition Drill Book. I put a lot of time and effort into this book. I compiled my favorite transition drills that I have acquired throughout my career as a player and skills coach. These competitive drills will improve your team s ability to perform in an up-tempo game and will have your players sprinting the floor harder and more consistently than ever before. Whether you want to play fast or are preparing for a team that plays fast, you will find drills in this book that will get your team ready to win the transition battle. Playing fast is not about rushing to get shots up quickly; it is about speeding up your opponent and forcing them to play at an uncomfortable pace that they are not used to playing at, which will hinder their performance. It is also about making the transition from offense to defense and from defense to offense quicker than your opponent every time that a change of possession occurs. In order for your team to become effective in those areas, you must practice intense, quick-paced drills on a daily basis, so that your players feel comfortable playing at this speed in games. I must warn you that if your team is not used to playing fast or sprinting from end-to-end consistently, your team will look sloppy when you start to implement these drills. Your team will fatigue quicker and turn the ball over more than usual in practice at first, but keep in mind that your opponents will experience the same frustrating struggles when you play them. Stick with it and your players will improve and learn how to stay poised when the game speeds up. Additionally, make sure your players realize that the floor is not slanted downward towards the offensive end of the court. They need to commit to defense if they want to win the transition battle, because the battle occurs on both ends. After all, the best transition attack starts with a great defensive steal or stop. Finally, make sure you stress the importance of sprinting EVERY possession. On offense, make sure they know that they will not get rewarded with a scoring opportunity every time they sprint, but if they keep sprinting, your team will eventually be rewarded with scoring opportunities. On defense, make sure they know that it is all about stopping your opponent, so all five players must get back. No buddy running and no complaining about a foul call that was missed. As soon as there is a change of possession, it is time to sprint back! Hopefully you enjoy the book and it helps your team win the transition battle in games. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at Please take the time to visit my website at. Sincerely, Drew Hanlen

4 Transition Defense Killers - Pouting & complaining about missed foul calls - Buddy-running & jogging back - Not my guy/responsibility mentality - Lack of communication Transition Defense Musts - Quickly sprint back after change-of-possession - Communicate responsibilities - Protect the rim - Pick up and stop the ball - Plug lanes and contain penetration - Find shooters - Match up - Contest shots - Rebound

5 Transition Offense Killers - Getting scored on - Jogging - Lack of spacing - I m not going to get it mentality - Over-dribbling / not advancing the ball quickly Transition Offense Musts - Quickly push or outlet/inbound to handler - Rim sprint by big - Wide sprints by the wings - Advance the ball to open playmakers - Drive lanes if defenders are not plugging gaps - Find shooters - Share the ball / make the extra pass - Get lay-ups or uncontested shots - Flow directly into offense if no transition score

6 1v1 Rim Runs Step 1: Coach will start on either wing with the basketball. The offensive player will start basketside of the defensive player in the half-court circle. As soon as the coach yells, Go, both players will sprint to the rim. Because the offensive player started with an advantage, the coach will not hit them on the run, but instead allow the post player to hold a high transition seal. After two seconds, the coach will pass the basketball to the offensive player. Step 2: Players will sprint back to the half-court circle. This time, the offensive and defensive player will start even, both having a foot on the half-court line. The offensive player will start ball side. As soon as the coach yells, Go, both players will sprint to the rim. If the offensive player is in front of the defender, the coach will hit them for a dunk or lay-up. If the offensive player is trailing or even with the defender, the offensive player must fight for an angle. Coach will pass the basketball to the offensive player whenever they call for it. On the catch, players will play live 1v1. Step 3: Players will sprint back to the half-court circle. This time, the defensive player will start basket-side of the offensive player in the half-court circle. As soon as the coach yells, Go, both players will sprint to the rim. Because the defensive player started with an advantage, the offensive player must hit and drive them towards the rim, then spin and fight for an angle. Coach will pass the basketball to the offensive player whenever they call for it. On the catch, players will play live 1v1.

7 1v1 Alley Drill Step 1: Players will play full-court 1v1, staying within the alley, which is the width of the lane-line. Step 2: If the basketball goes out of the alley, it is considered out of bounds and the basketball is rewarded to whoever would receive the basketball in that situation in a game. If a player scores, they stay on offense, so they will get the basketball out of the net and quickly attack in the opposite direction. Additional Info: Play until one player scores three times.

8 Full-Court 1v1 Close Outs Set Up: Defenders will start with the basketballs on the baseline, while the offensive players will start on the opposite baseline. Steps: Defender in the front of the line will roll the basketball towards the player in the front of the offensive line.

The offensive player will attack the basket and attempt to score on the defender. Additional Info: Coaches can make this a team drill by splitting the players up and allowing both teams to play offense for two minutes then defense for two minutes. Team with most points at the end of four minutes wins.

10 Diamond Full-Court 2v1 with Helper Set Up: Players will be divided into two teams. Both offensive players will start on a block, facing the opposite basket. One of the defenders will start with the basketball at the top of the key, while the other will start on the baseline under the basket. Step 1: Defender with the basketball at the top of the key will pass the basketball to one of the offensive players on the blocks to start the drill. On the pass, the drill is live 2v2 in the full-court. Step 2: Defender at the top of the key will sprint back and protect the basket, while the offensive players will attack the defender and try to score in the 2v1 situation before the trailing defender recovers. Step 3: Regardless the outcome of the possession, the defensive team will transition back on offense and play live 2v2 in the full-court.

Step 2: Offensive player that shoots (or turns the ball over) must sprint and touch inside the center circle, and then sprint back on defense, while the defender must secure the rebound or get the made field goal out of the net and then outlet the basketball to their teammate at the angle. If the defender gets a steal, they can quickly outlet the basketball to their teammate at the angle as well. As soon as the player receives the outlet, they will advance the basketball to their teammates that are ready to attack at half-court. The offensive player that did not shoot will rotate to the outlet line at the angle. Step 3: Continue this rotation until one of the teams scores 12 baskets.

12 2v1 With Helper Set Up: Offensive player starts on the wing with the basketball, while another offensive player will start in the opposite corner. One of the defenders will start in front of the rim, while the other defender will start outside the three-point line in the weak-side slot. Step 1: Ball handler will attack the basket, while the offensive player in the corner cuts to the basket. The defender in front of the rim will stunt or slide over and stop the handler, while the defender in the weak-side slot will sprint to drop to the level of the ball.

As soon as the basketball crosses half-court, the waiting offensive player at halfcourt can attack. Step 3: Offensive player that does not sprint back on defense will rotate to the half-court waiting position. Defender that made the outlet pass will rotate to the outlet line, while the other defender will become the waiting defender in the paint.

The original ball handler will sprint back on defense as soon as they touch the baseline. Additional Info: Drill is 5v5 in the full-court, with no stoppage. Team with most points at the end of six minutes wins. Coach should try to even out the amount of times each team has to change so that both teams get the same number of possessions.

One shot per possession. Step 3: As soon as one of the offensive players shoots or turns the basketball over, they must sprint back and defend against four players from the Black Team (the two defenders and two additional players that stepped on as soon as the possession ended) who are looking to score in the full-court 4v3 situation. One shot per possession. Step 4: As soon as one of the offensive players shoots or turns the basketball over, they must sprint back and defend against five players from the Red Team (the three defenders and two other additional players that stepped on as soon as the possession ended) who are looking to score in the full-court 5v4 situation. One shot per possession. Step 5: As soon as one of the offensive players shoots or turns the basketball over, they must sprint back and defend against five players from the Black Team (the four defenders and an additional player that stepped on as soon as the possession ended) who are looking to score in the full-court 5v5 situation.
