Basketball Play - 3 Line Lay-ups

3 Line Lay-ups

Wes Kosel 08/26/2015

This is a 3 line lay-up drill that we used as a warm-up for almost every practice and pre-game routine when I was an assistant at TLU. This was a staple for our basketball program, and we used it to get the players’ bodies ready for practices or games and also to get the players focused for the practice or game ahead. It starts aiming for 55 each side, and increases the number throughout the season. This drill is great at getting your players to move, talk, and to execute. Any missed lay-ups, dropped passes, or mistakes filling lines can result in not reaching the goal. Emphasis: • Move the ball without passing • Sharp passes (do not float passes) • Finishing lay-ups • Communication (we require the players to say the name of the teammate that they are passing to or receiving a pass from) Set-up: • 3 Lines • 2 basketballs • Basketball in either the right or left line (this doesn’t matter, because the drill will switch sides half way through) Rules: • The ball should never hit the ground (no dropped passes and no dribbling) • Don’t leave early from the lines (players will tend to leave early for passes to reach the goal in the allotted time) • Always rotate to the LEFT, whether we are shooting from the right or left side • 6:00 minutes on the clock • Start with a goal of 55 on each side (players switch the drill once they reach 55, ideally close to 3:00 minutes left) Execution: Frame 1: The ball starts in the left line. 1 passes to 2. Once the pass is made to 2, both 1 and 3 can start cutting to the wings. This is where players will begin leaving early (usually the players in the far line opposite the ball). 2 passes to 3 at the wing, and then 2 runs straight up the floor into the lane. Frame 2: 3 passes to 1 for a lay-up. 3 then cuts to the opposite side of the floor for an outlet pass. After shooting the lay-up, 1 clears out to the opposite side of the floor from which he started. 2 follows the shot for the rebound (the ball shouldn’t hit the floor!). At this time, the 2nd ball would have started (Player 4 passing to 5), but for the diagram I left this out. Frame 3: 2 passes to 3, and then clears out the opposite side of the pass. Players will tend to want to follow the pass. 3 passes to the next player in the 1st line (left side of the floor), and the drill starts over again. Players 1, 2, and 3 should then rotate to the next line to the left of where they started. See More

Basketball Play - 4 Chair Drill I

4 Chair Drill I

Matthew Monroe 07/19/2015

Note: Mix up your dribble move combinations and finishes. For example, the first part of the drill you have the player start with a sweep and a rip, go through the chairs making cross overs, speed dribble to the last chair, go between their legs, and finish with a floater. The second time you do the drill you may change up each part of it to work on different moves and finishes. See More

Basketball Play - Multiple Shots

Multiple Shots

FastModel Sports 04/01/2015

How can you create (or recreate) drills that maximize the skills you are emphasizing to your team, while also integrating shots at the basket? For example, if you are running a drill that focuses on players attacking the basket from the wing and finishing at the hoop, you want to create a drill that gets your players as many reps as possible during that drill See More

Basketball Play - HUBIE DRILL


Fabian McKenzie 03/17/2015

This Drill starts with 5 players along the baseline. 4 and 5 will run wide lanes 2 and 3 will run inside lanes Players begin to sprint up the court. 1 passes to 2 2 passes to 3 3 passes to 4 4 passes to 5 for a layup There are no dribbles allowed to get the ball up the court and into the basket While it may look a little confusing it is really fluid. 1 always gets the rebound. 2 and 3 touch the baseline and change lanes 4 and 5 must touch baseline and change lanes The drill continues in the same pattern 1 passes to 2 2 passes to 3 3 passes to 4 4 passes to 5 for a layup Options: You can have another group ready to go and challenge the entire team to make a certain amount of layups withing a time frame. A missed layup or missed pass can reset the score to zero for a tougher challenge. We have also done this drill where we build it up from down and back to 2 or 3 times down and back. Another variation is if the players miss a layup they must continue until they get 2 layups in a row See More

Basketball Play - 2 Minute Continuous Lay-Ups

2 Minute Continuous Lay-Ups

FastModel Sports 03/03/2015

Start by splitting your team into two lines at half court, about 30-40 feet apart. Every player in one of the lines should have a ball. Players are going to be shooting lay-ups at both baskets continuously for 2 minutes. The drill begins at the same time on both baskets. Player 1 passes a cross to Player 7, who passes right back to Player 1 for a lay-up. The player shooing the lay-up is not allowed to dribble, so the pass must be in the correct spot to lead them into their shot. Simultaneously, Player 4 passes a cross to Player 10, who passes right back to Player 4 for a lay-up. Both passers (Players 7 and 10) rebound the lay-ups and dribble to the line on the opposite side of the court (the shooting line). Both lay-up shooters (Player 1 and Player 4) sprint to the line opposite them (the passing line). The drill continues with the next pair of players performing the same give and go motion (Player 2 with Player 8 and Player 5 with Player 11) for lay-up attempts. As the drill progresses, the lines disappear as everyone is forced to be moving to keep the drill alive. See More

Basketball Play - Ballscreen Shooting (2)

Ballscreen Shooting (2)

Kyle Gilreath 02/13/2015

Yesterday I shared Part 1 of Ballscreen Shooting which incorporated three different types of screening actions. The technique the throw-behind in Frame 1, is essentially a quick evade dribble. You are trying to throw the ball out in front of you, in an effort to create separation from the hedging defender, while also making it difficult for the initial defender to recover in time before the quick release jumper. Do not allow your players to just go through the motions, set a goal to reach during each set. Example: You MUST go 7-for-10 before moving to the next sequence. See More

Basketball Play - Pick & Roll Shooting Drill

Pick & Roll Shooting Drill

Kyle Gilreath 02/12/2015

This set of pick & roll shooting drills is one of my favorites for player development. There are 189 total moves below to work on different pick & roll coverages and methods of attack at the three most popular angles. In order to keep your workouts efficient and energetic, take just one action and focus on 3-4 moves within that action from all three angles. Do not allow your players to just go through the motions, set a goal to reach during each set. Example: You MUST make 7-10 before moving to the next sequence. See More
