Hitting Circle Edge - Attack
Develop your players' ability to land on the circle edge to reduce the pressure on the ball carrier and increasing the success of the pass.
*AUDIO DESCRIPTION ON*
Delivering the ball midcourt through to the circle edge/shooters
Half court, two balls, 5+ players
1 player standing on base line, another player with the ball standing around the third line.
Note: The video shows the drill being played out with 2 groups of players, you could just focus on one group i.e. 1 line, 1 V driver. The description is based on one group.
Player on base line near shooting post, V drives towards court edge and receives a pass from the player in the line with the ball.
Player who passes the ball drives directly to the circle edge in a straight line and receives a pass from the player who has driven out on the V.
Player who had initially drove out now drives into a position under the hoop to receive a pass from their player and put a shot up.
To add in some competition, have two groups compete against each other e.g. first team to 4 goals.
Add in defence (bibbed): 1 defender in the circle, 1 defender out of the circle. This creates a 4 on 2 situation. Defenders shouldn’t get any ball if the attackers are placing the ball in the right space.
Attackers are looking to pass into space especially into the circle to the shooter.
