Basketball Drill Demonstration
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.
