Pit your players against each other with these 3v2 drills, and improve their defensive and attacking game sense skills.
3v2s are great for boosting players' match skills under pressure. You can use 3v2 drills to improve offensive skills, such as communication, teamwork, passing, possession and shooting. You can also work your defensive players and develop their shadowing, zone marking, and tracking ability, as they work hard to win the turnover.
2 players will attack 1 defender. After a shot has been taken all 3 players become offence and 2 defenders will run in to play a 3v2 at the other end. Once a shot has been taken at that end. The 2 defenders become offence and 1 defender will run in at the other end. This is a continuous drill, where each end the same thing will happen each time.
3 v 2
Play out a 3 man weave to the half court line. Turn and play the 3 man weave back towards the basket. When close enough the player on the ball plays a layup shot.
3 v 2
The 3 attacking players move up the court, playing an unopposed 3 man weave all the way to the half court line. Once they reach the half-way line they turn and play a 3 vs 2 back to the basket with the defenders staying inside the 3 point line.
3 v 2
Play out an unopposed 3 man weave to the half court line. On the way back 3 man weave until one player is close enough to score with a layup.
3 v 2
To start 3 players attack the 2 defending players on the other side of the court. When the defenders collect the rebound they then attack the other basket against the 1 player that took the shot. (Drill the restarts with all 3 players who finished the previous run through on the offensive).
