Basketball
Description

Players line up on two sides, with one player stood in the middle. The ball starts on the side where there are most players lined up.

The first player passes to the middle player and runs to the left to receive the return pass.

Players then perform a quick one-two pass before passing the ball to the player on the opposite side.

The drill then starts again, with the player who made the initial pass remaining in the middle.

Coaching Points

Each player should make some sort of movement before receiving the ball - it's not often in a real game that players simply stand still and wait for the ball to come to them!
