Pre game drill ideas for adult top level

I am looking for pre game drill ideas. in half a hour we warm up with dynamic stretching. Ball handling/passing then 2 or 3 team drills. What drills do you recommend for adult top level drills?

Hi Michelle, 

I have found a few drills I believe would be perfect for you.

1) Anywheres - this is always a good drill to get your players on their toes and their heart rate raised - you can progress the drill by getting two feeders and two workers, working at the same time, so the workers will need to cross each time. Communication will be key here

2) Reaction Drill - this will get your players really thinking and ready to react to any loose balls on court 

3) Corner Drill - this is a good team drill to get everyone involved and get their timing correct 

4) Interception Drill - I would advise finishing on this drill, as it gets your players really ready for the game. Also if your team are loud and really supportive of each other it can be intimidating for the opposition 

These are only a few suggestions, alternatively check out our 'Warms Ups' category in our drills section. You may wish to do a group warm up e.g. running, stretching etc. and then split your team into units - shooters, centre court and defence, with each having a different drill. The whole team would then come together again for a group practice to conclude. 

An example of this is below: 
- Shooters - To practice their shooting and movement within the circle
Shooter Rotation 

- Centre court - Quick feet and hands, so the anywheres drill would be good, followed working on their angle and movement 
Bow-Tie

- Defence - Small foot base, without contact but competing for the ball 
Competing For The Ball 

Hope this has given you some ideas.
