I hope that you can use this or add some more defensive wrinkles to include some defense and transition to your spring and summer “Improvement Season” workouts. You could also include 10 or 15 seconds of imaginary defense where the player has to simulate defensive positioning sliding, helping, etc… before transitioning to offense.

Great drill to get players reps in different defensive situations and then transition into offense.
