This is the best drill there is for teaching the game of basketball. Cut-Throat is a pillar of the Snow Valley Basketball School. Every camp ends with this drill.
Cut Throat is a 4 on 4 competition that started at Snow Valley Basketball School. It is a timed drill that teaches great habits. It can be used as an offense or defense drill.
There are 4 rules for Cut Throat.
1. On the catch every player must "square up" with eyes on the basket and in a triple threat position.
(The only exception is on a cut toward the basket to score.)
2. After every pass, each player must make a purposeful basket cut.
3. On a made shot, the player that made the shot must thank the passer. (This includes a pass from the Coach.)
4. There are no out of bounds.
The goal is to stay on offense
Play begins with a whistle from the Coach. When the "Black" team sprints out, they must say their score.
The second whistle brings out the "Red" team on defense.
Here is where the drill takes on the identity you need it to. You can make the offense do anything you wish.
