Player 1 dribbles the ball with their right hand, change to the left and then go for a lay up shot. Player 2 starts with the left hand, then changes to the right before attempting a lay up.
Set up two wide cones with 2 teams facing each other.
Both teams are going in the same direction around the cones.
The goal is to catch up with the other team to tag or over take them. The team that does this is the winner.
Each player will complete a full circle around both cones before passing to the next player.
Set up two lines, one for the for the defending players (red) and the other for the attacking players (blue) who have one ball.
When the coach blows their whistle both players run around their respective cones (shown in diagram).
After the blue player has made their way around the cone another player in the offensive players' line passes the ball to them.
After they've run round the cones players play out the 1 vs 1.
Player 1 dribbles to the cone before passing to player 2, and then proceeds to continue their run to the next cone. They then make a cut to receive the pass and then turn and shoot.
Footwork and Movement
Split into 2 lines and have a line on either side of the court.
One player in the middle with a basketball.
The player in the middle will pass to the 1st player in one of the lines. After the pass is made that player will go and defender the receiver of the pass.
They will play 1v1. Only 1 shot is allowed.
Once a shot has been taken the ball will be passed to the opposite line where the offensive player will become the defender.
Start with two lines of players either end of the court. On the command both players go and dribble the ball around the circle before dribbling around the centre circle. They then proceed to the last circle before having a shot.
Split the group into equal teams Place cones at 5m intervals. On the command the players dribble to the 1st cone before stopping and dribbling back to the start (whilst still facing forwards). They then progress to dribble to the 2nd cone before dribbling back to the 1st cone and so on. Once they complete the relay they run to the back and roll the ball through the legs of their team mates to the person at the start of the queue.
