    Players start on the mid post. First player swoops to receive an outlet pass from the Dish.

  • Upon catching, the player peeks and rips the ball in front of them. Note: Put a coach or a manager at the outlet location to simulate a secondary defender.


    Player sprint dribbles up the sideline to the first cone/chair/coach/manager. They perform an attack move preceded by a hesitation and peek.


    Push the dribble to the inside of the obstacle to get to the middle of the court.

  • Player 1 finishes on the other end with a finishing move prescribed at the beginning of the drill. The cone/manager/chair serves as the bottom defender in transition. Note: There should be a coach or manager for the players to "sever the angle" on to get into the paint. Add when your team is used to the pace.


    Player 1 rips the ball out of the net and attacks the outside cone on the opposite side of the court from their original attack. They hunt the paint and pull up for a jumper in the lane, joining the back of the line.


    Meanwhile, player 2 is swooping to continue the drill.
