2 Lane Passing Drills

Passing and catching on the move is often a challenge for young players because of strength and coordination. However it is such an important part of the game that it must be practiced each practice. 2 Lane Passing is easily organized and with modifications can be made more challenging for players.



Building the Athletic House-Slap the Net

We hope coaches take the approach that they are going to help each of their players become better athletes and help build their "athletic house." 

Slap the Net:

Slap the Net can be used as a warm-up and is a good activity to help develop coordination, lay-up footwork, and strength. 



Balance Training-"Knock Down"

We hope coaches take the approach that they are going to help each of their players become better athletes and help build their "athletic house."  Balance and the athletic stance are important attributes for players to develop.  "Knock down" is a simple, fun game that helps develop both balance, a proper athletic stance as well as improving core and shoulder strength in athletes.



Line Jumps

Line Jumps is great drill for athletes between the ages of 6 - 12.  Have your athletes stand about 2-4 feet back from a line.  On your cue, they will jump and try to land with their toes as close to the line as possible without actually touching it. 



Football Game

Basketball Football is a great game to work on the player's ability to pass the ball.  To set up the field of play place two cones across from each other at each end to serve as the goal line.



Teaching Aggressive Play

Young players need to be taught early in their basketball career that the success in sport usually goes to the most aggressive and assertive players.
