Offense, Defense, Midfield
Switching from offense to defense after a turnover.
Description of Drill-Execution
This drill is a continuous 4v3 drill. Players are placed into two groups regardless of position. Lines 1-4 (white pinnies) will attack as a 4v3. The player who shoots the ball is out regardless of whether or not he scores. The remaining three players will remain in the drill and defend against 4 new players from lines 5-8 (dark pinnies). Players should be encouraged to find the layup shots, not outside blasts.
- Unsettled situations
- Transition from offense to defense
- Ball Movement

This drill should last for 3-5 seconds for each group. You can increase intensity by shortening the time frame, or requiring dropped balls to be a turnover.
