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 - Don Showalter USA U16 3 Line Pick & Roll Drill

Don Showalter USA U16 3 Line Pick & Roll Drill

Wes Kosel 06/22/2015

In this drill, there are 3 lines (1 with guards, 1 with wings, and 1 with post players). A coach starts with the ball on the opposite wing. In option 1, the drill starts with G passing to W and then G cuts through to the opposite corner. P steps out to set a ball-screen for W. W drives into the lane and hits P on the roll. The coach passes to the G in the corner and the post player on the baseline passes to W. The drill ends with all 3 players getting a shot. In option 2, it starts the same except that W will pass to G in the corner, coach will pass to W, and the post player on the baseline will pass to the post rolling off of the screen to the short corner.

Basketball Play - Ball Screen Series

Ball Screen Series

James Ponchak 04/11/2015

Here is a series of drills that Coach Hurley uses at Saint Anthony to work on ball screen reads. It is a great example of how your skill work can build your offense. I like that Coach Hurley is creating good habits for his athletes while simultaneously developing their skills within the offense. This is a good concept to think about and use to develop drills that will create good habits within your offense. As we teach at PGC Basketball, "In moments of extreme pressure, athletes revert to their most deeply held habits." See More

Basketball Play - HUBIE DRILL

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
