Basketball Drill Demonstration

Description

Have players lined up either side of the lane. When the whistle is blown the players will sprint out to the cones and do a close-out.

They will then slide to the corner. Once they get to the corner, they will sprint to the half way line. At the half way line they do a defensive slide to the other sideline.

To finish they will back pedal to the free throw line.

Coaching points

Watch for correct defensive technique and also want you players to be yelling ball when they close-out. This drill needs a lot of energy from the coaches and players.
