Step forwards with one foot.
As the weight transfers forward make a chest pass by extending your arms at chest height and bounce the ball in between you and the player to whom you are passing.
Adding some topspin will keep the bounce lower, backspin will make the ball bounce higher.
Players line up parallel with the sidelines.
Depending on the level of your players you can start with one or two basketballs. If using two balls one player should use a chest pass with the other using a bounce pass to avoid the balls hitting in mid-air.
Duration of the each drill is 1 minute.
1. Start off with simple chest passing to each other whilst jogging on the spot. After a little while change the type of pass to a bounce pass.
2. Same as above, this time alternating the types of pass, throwing one chest and one bounce pass.
3. Players must move from one sideline to the other whilst maintaining the same distance between one another. Move the ball between one another by using simple chest passes whilst jogging. After about a minute repeat this stage using bounce passes.
4. Increase and decrease the distance between the players and move from sideline to sideline. Simple chest passes to each other whilst jogging. When both players are at the sideline, they might use a javelin or baseball pass to each other. After use bounce passes. After use exercises 2 and 3.
Starting with bent knees transfer the body weight upwards.
Move the ball in an upwards arc up the chest.
Extend the arms and make the chest pass level with your chest.
Pick up a rolling ball, feet shoulder width apart. When you pick up the ball, lead forwards with the dominant foot and as your momentum goes forwards make a bounce pass. Forward momentum gives more power.
Player 1 starts with the ball in the middle of the court and plays the ball to player 2 who cuts in to the first cone.
Player 2 must then pass to player 3 who has also made a run inside to the other cone further up the court.
Player 1 in the meantime should loop on the outside behind player 2 to receive the ball back from player 3 and take a shot.
