Basketball Drill Demonstration


You score a 3pt. shot then a 2pt shot outside the key and a 1pt lay up including a defender, passes and rebounds.

Defender taps attacker's hand to signal the start of the drill. The Attacker shoots a 3pointer while the defender runs to the end line then gets the rebound while the attacker sprints to the left short corner getting ready for a pass from the defender after the rebound. After the pass, the defender then follows the ball and try to block the attackers 2pt. shot. If blocked the defender then steals the ball and turn into the attacker and speed dribble to the right short corner and perform a 1pt. lay up shot. If the defender fails to block the attackers 2pt. shot, the attacker would then get the rebound while the defender sprints to the right short corner getting ready for a pass from the attacker. When the defender catches the pass he/she then performs a 1pt. lay up. Repeat process however the defender stays and becomes the attacker.
