In this post, we will be discussing some fast break basketball drills which highlight passing and obtaining a pass while traveling down the court and completing the fast break utilizing a lay-up, or completing in a two on one situation.
Two-on-None Passing Drill
Teammates begin by pairing up and run down the court passing the basketball to one another. Upon the final pass, the receiving player will proceed to perform a lay-up. The duo then leaves the court and get back in line to perform the drill again. After everyone has performed the drill, the first two people go back up the court performing the same process to complete the drill..
While performing this drill with your partner, you want to ensure that the last pass is always a bounce pass that will setup you or your partner for the layup. It is also important that you do not dribble the ball during this drill. The goal is to build upon your passing ability not your dribbling. Lastly you want to perform this drill running….not walking or jogging.
Two-on-One Passing Drill
This time we are going to add a defender into the mix. The defender will run in front of the two offensive players and will try to defend in a two on one situation. The defensive player should just move down the court and try to defend at the end. The defender may want to jump between the offensive players anywhere down the court to attempt to block or steal the pass. Should the basketball be stolen or a turnover occurs the three players stop and exist the court and get in line to complete the drill. After everyone has performed the drill, the first three people go back up the court performing the same process to finish the drill.
