Basketball Drills: Transition and Conditioning

Here are 3 ideas for drills to work on conditioning at the same time that you are working on skill development at a quick game-like pace. All three drills are scored and timed.

The best way for you to implement them with your team is to determine how long your team can go and what type of score you want to set as your standard. You can always run the drills a few times and tweak them so that they are meaningful to your team.
