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.

The left lane gets the lay up and passes to next player without ball in the right lane and joins the back of the right lane. The shooter leaves their shot and joins the back of the left lane. This can be done on the left of right hand sides
Players on the left start with a ball each. Going one player at a time they dribble out into the centre of the court where they meet the defender. The defender should prevent them from moving across the court. Before they get within arm's reach of the defender the attacking player should drive into the key where they have a shot.
