This is a little bit more of a complicated drill and has a few more moving pieces than most basketball drills, but it is an excellent drill for quickly transferring back and forth from offense to defense and defense to offense. If you coach a team that likes to pressure full court, jump passing lanes, and play fast, this is a great basketball drill for you.
Not only will this combination basketball shooting drill work on the player’s ability to go seamlessly back and forth, but it will also help to build the mental habit of scoring and then immediately jumping into defense, taking away easy passes.

Basketball Drill Instructions
- Set up a chair on the left slot just outside the 3 point line, a chair on the right elbow, and a chair on the right short corner/mid-range area.
- Set a basketball in each of the chairs on the right.
- The player is going to start in front of the left chair with a basketball.
- When the drill starts, the player will attack the chair off of the dribble, make a move, and then finish at the basket.
- As soon as they finish, they must sprint back on defense.
- As they are sprinting back, the coach will throw a pass out by half court, and the player must jump and steal the pass.
- When they steal the pass, they will turn around and dribble attack to the top of the key for a pull-up jump shot.
- After the shot, they will jog down to the right block and then defensive closeout to the right elbow.
- At this point, the coach will call either 1 or 2.
- If they call 1, the player will slide to the corner, take the ball from the chair, and then curl the chair for a shot.
- If the coach calls 2, the player will slide to the corner chair, back up the chair at the elbow, take the ball from the chair, and then curl the chair for the shot.
- After either shot, the player’s last action will be to sprint back one more time to half court and intercept the pass.
- You can have a player go through the drill once or multiple times in a row.
- Also, you can keep track of points and make it a challenge between the players.
- Points are counted the same as they would be in a game (2’s and 3’s).
