We are a packline team, but this drill (and many others) can be adapted to work with any defensive system. 2-on-2 Gap Help is great drill emphasizing our talk system and basic ball-you-man and ball-you-basket positioning.
Players line up lane line extended along the baseline. Rotate defense to offense to out. On coaches cue, both defenders (1's) closeout relative to the ball (C) as shown.
Coach passes to the wing and defense jumps to the ball. Emphasize ball pressure and high hole help.
If coach drives elbow, gap help (2) practices stunting (stab and help). Move the ball according to the coach's discretion (often cued by his clap). After changing the ball 3 or 4 times, finish the possession "live."
