Teaching the Fast Break
Dennis Rodman, nicknamed Dennis the Menace, was known for his defensive hustle and his brilliant rebound record despite his relatively small height - however, another strong part of his game was what came next - The outlet pass!
The outlet pass is a great way to start a fast break. Below we outline some of the key features your players will need to catch the opposition on the hop with a fast break.
- Win the defensive rebound
- Look up early and find the outlet pass!
- Be direct and take the shortest route to the basket
- Burst out of the blocks and Sprint!
Even if the attack breaks down you can always look to develop a good secondary break, before the opposition's defence has had a chance to set!
