one of the biggest mistakes my team makes is for everyone to be crowding the ball, so when a turn over is made, the chance for it to be reintercepted is high. it also creates confusion, and makes people rush their passes. so find drills to get them to stay spread out, be patient, allow the players in the area who have the ball, to do their job to get it down to the shooters. Also make sure they are being patient by holding their position, and driving when they are needed. by giving the player with the ball too many options, you are confusing them, and will delay a pass, so good driving forward drills would also be useful. having good strong passes to the spot where the player is running into, not where they are coming from. so passing drills, and running onto the ball, and passing into space would also help.

hope that helps.

one of things we are doing in trainings now is trying to get players after intercepting a ball is to go for short pass as to longer loopy passes

Hi Suzanne, I would offer the advice that once a player intercepts the ball, they are to slow down and compose themselves, clearly identify the player they are going to throw to and then throw it - not just intercept the ball and rush a throw for the sake of trying to be quick. - As like Lee-anne says the reintercept rate is high.

I always emphasise let ball passing speed get you down the court quickly, not crazy rushed thinking with wild passes. I also emphasize it is the receivers responsibilty and to take ownership  to make a space so the thrower can throw a safe pass.

I did have some players who use to rush their passes under pressure and throw some crazy passes in games- and I mean crazy passes. So in training those players would have no 3 second time limit to pass the ball, but had to make their passes accurate and safe. I would put them under ball pressure at training and  I found this worked well as under game pressure they still came under the 3 second passing rule (they just stopped throwing the ball in the first second after getting it and handing balls back over to opponents).

Hope it helps
