The dribbler will use the ball screen, this situation the dribblers defender has gone under the screen.
The dribbler is going to stop on top of the screen and shoot a jump shot.
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.
On the signal the players must move backwards and forwards over the line whilst maintaing the ball dribbling on the line.
The player will dribble down to the level of the ball screen.
Once they get in line with the screen, the ball handler will dribble backwards simulating that the screen is being hedged by the screeners defender.
Once the dribbler has gone backwards they will then attack again getting 1 or 2 dribble separation to shoot a jump shot.
Players start out in the corner on either side of the court.
Set up 2 cones in front of the players. The 1st cone 15 ft away. The 2nd cone 30 ft away. There will also be a chair 18-20 ft away from the basket.
Players dribble to the 1st cone and perform a change of direction dribble.
Player then dribbles around the 2nd cone and then dribbles at speed towards the chair.
When they reach the chair they should quickly change direction, move and attack the basket where they will finish with a lay-up.
Set players up as shown in diagram. One player on each side will dribble/run to half court. Once they get to half court, the players will turn and face the basket. The player with the ball will pass across to the other player. That player will then pass back to the original ball handler. Where that player will dribble to the basket and shoot a lay-up.
Players dribble around the outside of the cones (in the same direction). On the whistle all players have to change direction
Setup as shown in the diagram. Players have to dribble through the slalom, on reaching the end of the slalom the player then shoots.
Place basketballs 3m from players Player starts on their back and on the signal gets up, picks up the ball and starts to dribble around the cone and back again. When the ball is placed down on the floor the next person can go.
Can be done anywhere. Stand on the spot and dribble the ball a variety of ways and facing different directions.
Dribble 2 basketballs on the move. When players reach a cone the ball on their outside goes behind their back and the other ball crosses over in front. Players then continue running to the next cone and repeating.
First player dribbles full court with a defender covering all the time. Upon reaching the opposite baseline player dribbling becomes the defender and the other player dribbles the length of the court.
