Basketball Drill Instructions

  • The chair is placed on either wing or elbow.
  • The player is going to start under the basket with the ball.
  • When the drill starts, the player will speed dribble out around the chair (start on the baseline side of the chair).
  • The player must touch the seat of the chair with their inside hand as they circle it.
  • After they circle the chair, they will cross the ball over and lay it up at the basket.
  • They will then immediately grab the ball out of the basket and sprint back out to the chair.
  • This time though, they will touch the ball to the chair, reverse pivot, and take a shot.
  • They must then get their rebound and repeat the layup.
  • This alternating pattern will continue for the desired amount of time, usually 30 or 60 seconds.
  • Every layup is worth one point, and every made shot is worth two points.
  • You can make this drill into a competition by having multiple players go and then have the highest score win.
