Favorite transition drill from Coach Michael Lynch of Leicester HS in Massachusetts.
Program Spotlight - Leicester Wolverines
Skill Building for Dribble Drive Motion Offense
Keys to Designing a DDM Practice Plan
Drill to work on defensive communication as well as closing out to help. Can add the offense circling up to add more of a challenge to the defense and have the offense work on finding/maintaining spacing.
Competitive drill to work on multiple skills or if you are limited with baskets and want to get shots up. Lanes can be adjusted based on your philosophy and number of players. Can add another lane to go 5 lanes wide.
Dr. Dish shooting drill to work on shooting on the move. Sprint from wing to wing taking shots at each wing. Emphasize ball in the air, feet in the air so player’s feet will be shot ready on the catch. Goal is to make 35 out of 50.

Defending the 1v0
"Wolf" - Chase the dribbler from behind
Sprint back. "You are never too late on defense."
Attempt to block the shot low with the near hand
Rebound - do not go past the backboard!
Catching the dribbler from behind to block or change a shot is momentum changing play!
This is a fast-paced transition shooting drill that will get your team a lot of reps shooting game shots, from game spots, at game speed. Add in a decision making element with the options after the initial action.
Use this drill as a way to build your transition game, half-court offense spacing, and communication. Can run for a certain amount of time, or give a certain number of reps to each group of 3.
A variation on the "Hunt the Paint" drill that encompasses transition principles, such as passing the ball ahead, changing momentum/direction on the catch, finishing against contact, rebounding, and pushing it off a rebound. Competitive way to start practice, get the juices flowing, and make SHOTS!
Illini Break is a competitive, team transition drill. The offense has the advantage and gets to play fast. Forcing the defense to get back with a high sense of urgency. We want to always fastbreak on defense. But first, we must emphasize our offensive board coverage (OBC). Then, if we do not secure the offensive rebound, all five players must get into the habit of always sprinting back. We consider your first three steps “out of the gate” as the most important. Guarding the basket is our number one priority and then stopping the ball. Once back, all five defenders need to establish ball side and help side position. This drill demands that, and more. Get ahead of the ball! No back pedaling, buddy running (remaining side by side with your match-up) and/or pouting after a missed shot or turnover.
