These are Fabian’s comments on the drill:
This is a good drill to challenge young players to work on passing form and dribbling with speed.
Players form a circle. Vary the size of the circle to challenge the players.
Player 1 and 3 have basketballs.
When coach blows whistle, 3 begins to dribble around circle.
Player 1 with ball passes to 2.
2 passes to next 1 and receives a pass back from 1.
2 must continue the pattern around the circle.
The goal for 3 is to get back to the starting spot before the ball makes it back.
1’s and 2 must pass as quickly as possible to try and race 3 back to the starting spot.
5 Out Jump Stop & Kick Passing Drill
This second drill was contributed by Mike Shaughnessy. Here is the link to the original post: 5 Out Jump Stop & Kick
Mike Shaughnessy is a Player Development Coach for Dr1ven Training LLC.
All 4 players with the ball are driving.
2 bounces to the box coming to a jump stop on 2 feet.
Players will pivot to where they are passing and snap the pass to the next person in line and rotate to the line they pass to.
5 in the corner will throw the drift pass being the only one that does not come to a jump stop (Stride Pass).
