This is a very game like basketball drill because it is going to simulate going from offense right into defense. It will work on conditioning players to always be thinking about the next play and moving from one area to another without any delay.
If you are a team that really likes to push the pace and get up to pressure the ball full court after a score, this is a great basketball drill to add to your workouts and practices. This drill will allow your players to get reps, train them to have the mindset of getting back after a score, and also work on the physical conditioning of completing multiple plays in a row without a break.
Drill Name: Georgetown Multiple Effort Drill #2
Drill Goal: Work on scoring moves, and then quickly getting back into defense.
Equipment Needed: 3 basketballs, 2 chairs, and a partner.
Tips: Be sharp with your different moves and value every shot, don't run off early to the next spot before you finish your shot. Outlet passer can make passes harder or easier to steal depending on the player. This drill can be done from either side of the floor.
Directions: Set up one chair on the left wing, one chair on the right elbow, and another chair in the mid range area of the right corner. Set a basketball in each of the chairs on the right wing. The player is going to start with a basketball at half court on the left side of the floor. When the drill starts, the player will attack the chair on the left wing and make any move they want before finishing at the basket.
As soon as they finish they will go to the right lane line and close out at the baseline chair. As they are doing this the coach will call out "1" or "2". If the coach calls out "1" the player will slide to the elbow chair and then open up around the chair, grab the ball from the chair, and then shoot it. After that they will fill around to the left wing for their second catch and shoot shot.
If the coach calls out "2" the player will slide to elbow chair and then back to the corner chair where they will open up, circle the chair, grab the ball and shoot it. After this shot, they will fill up around the elbow chair for their second catch and shoot shot at the left elbow. Regardless of what number the coach calls, after the player shoots their last shot, they are going to sprint back on defense and steal the lob pass that the partner tosses.
