Split all your players into two teams and have them line up on opposite sides of the court.
2 basketballs are placed at mid-court.
Each player is given a number (eg. 1-5).
The coach will set out a basket that each team will shoot at.
The coach will call out a number.
When the number is called out, the corresponding number will run out to get the ball, dribble to the basket and keep shooting till the shot is made.
Once the shot is made the players will run after the ball and dribble it back to the center circle.
The first player to score and get the ball back to the center circle wins.
Tendency is to rush the shot when it becomes a competition.
Don't allow the basket if the shot has not been taken with the correct form.
Call 2 numbers. In this variation of the game no dribbling is allowed, the players have to pass between each other until they get to the basket.
Both players must make a basket, then both players must run back to the centre circle.
First group that gets back wins and gets a point for their team.
First team to 5 points.
Pass the ball around the outside of the cones. While another team is running a rely around the outside square.
How many passes can the passing team do in the time the realy team runs. Then vice-versa.
Set up as shown in diagram.
If the player makes the shot, then they will go to the back of the line and the next player will shoot.
If a player misses a shot, then they will go stand by the cone (this place is called the "hot seat")
If the next player makes the shot, then the player on the "hot seat" is out.
If the next player misses then the player on the "hot seat" goes to the back of the line and the player who missed takes their place on the "hot seat".
The winner is the last person in the game.
Teams of 4-6 players with one ball. Players line up with their backs to the court and the gaps between the players are length of their hands. The first player in line has a ball. On the signal from the coach, the player with the ball hands it to the second player over the head and runs to the end of the line. The second player hands the ball to the third player under the legs and runs to the end of the line and continues over and under. The winner is the team who comes first to finish line.
--Players cannot move their feet when they hand off the ball.
--If the ball drops to the floor, they must start again from starting point.
Throw the ball in front of yourself and practice catching to shoot. The key thing is not bring the ball below waist height if you've already caught it at shoulder height (speed of shot).
Have a chair set up about 18-20 feet away from the basket. You can set the chair up on either side of the court. The purpose of the drill is to teach players to go at speed, beat their defender with a dribble move then go into a shot.
Players set up as shown in video clip. The line of players under the basket will each have a basketball. A pass will be made from the line on the baseline to the line at the top. Once the pass has been received that player will take a shot. The passer of the ball will run out and do a close out with their hand up to contest the shot. After the shot has been released they will turn and box out to get the rebound.
The defensive player will pass the ball to the offensive player. The defensive player will run towards the offensive player and close-out by chopping their feet. Once the defensive player has closed out, the offensive player will dribble towards the baseline for a jump shot. The defensive player will stay with the offensive player and challenge the jump shot.
Start in the guard position 5 meters above the three-point line just off center at the top of the key. Spin back the ball as if receiving a pass from another guard. Meet the pass with a quick stop, drop step and drive through the elbow for the shot. Rebound the shot and dribble to the sideline, do a spin dribble and return to the key to execute the drill to the other side on the elbow.

When they are just over half way towards player 2 they then make a sharp change of direction and cut out, running hard towards the cone where they will receive the return pass.

Start position is on the block. Toss the ball to the free throw line extended at the three-point line. Jag, step and cut to catch the ball in a quick step. Take the ball to the shooting pocket and forward pivot into the triple threat position facing the front pocket. Do a shoulder fake towards the free throw line and drive on a dribble to the baseline taking a shot from about 8 meters.
Players 1 2 will shoot the ball to each other. Concentrate on good shooting form and "arc".
From the block do a spin back, drop step to the power box, lift fake from the chin position, jump step to a hook. Concentrate on not bringing the ball down below the shoulders. When shooting learn to keep the ball up from the chin position. If you move that ball even a centimeter away from that body the defender will be able to knock it away. Do twenty each side of the double drop step.
Player 2 runs cross court in front of player 1 and receives the pass. Player 1 then cuts in court to receive the return pass. After the receiving the ball they then run into the key and then have a shot.

In a drop step, one leg moves first then the turn of the body. With a drop step you are trying to get one foot past the defenders foot, the body and the foot move at the same time
For the block go to the drop step to the middle of the key to a jump hook. Make sure you keep your back to the basket. Try not to turn side on. The key to inside play is being able to keep your back completely to the basket. Take plenty of shots on both sides with both hands.
