Basketball Drill Demonstration

Description

One player stands on each cone with a fifth player standing between two of the players, with the ball in hand.

The player in front of the player in possession should set off on a lead run and receive the pass from the fifth player.

After running onto the pass the next player in the square should make a lead run, looking to receive the next pass.

After passing players should continue to run until they reach the unoccupied cone.

Coaching points

Have hands ready to catch the ball.

Make sure the ball is being put in front of the receiving player so that they can move on to the ball and not have to reach behind.

Try to play an accurate lead pass to the player whilst they're on the move. Timing and accuracy are important in this drill.

Ensure there are no travelling violations.

Progression: Make the grid area larger.

Drill tags: lead, meet, onto, passing, running
