What is the drill for mid court speed and attack
Asked using Sportplan Mobile App
For mid-court it is important that they have a good speed and angles in order to get away from their defence and provide options for the ball carrier.
Firstly, I would advise improving your players foot speed - this can be done through ladder work for example. Give your players different footwork patterns to do through the ladders and/or allow them to make up their own. Ensure they stay on the balls of their feet, pump their arms and keep their head up - you can then progress this to add a feeder in, who can pass the ball in at anytime to ensure their head is up.
You should also get your players to work on their angles. You can use our search bar at the top of our page to look for drills, however here is an example of a good drill to improve this. Try to ensure your players do not drive flat, instead drive at an angle about 45 degrees to make sure the defender cannot cut in front.
Anywheres is always a good drill to get your players feet moving and reacting quickly to the ball - crucial to any mid-court player. Also if you have a look in our footwork category you will be able to find more drills to speed up your mid-court.
Hope this helps.
