Basketball Drill Demonstration


Two grids of equal size both with 4 players inside.

One team starts with the ball and passes it around inside their area, trying to keep possession.

In order to steal the ball and get the ball for their team one player from the other grid is allowed to enter the opposition team's grid and chase down the ball.

When they win the ball the player plays an unopposed pass into their grid, follows their pass and then the exercise starts again.

Coaching points

Players should move from where they are stood rather than remaining completely static (taking one or two steps to the side) in order to make themselves 'open' for the pass.

Players must remain in their corner to begin with and only once players become more competent can they move freely within the area to play a free-for-all 4 vs 1.
