Warm Up, Skills
To get multiple passes and shots in a game situation. This drill has players move like they would in the 8m, and forces them to work timing.
Description of Drill-Execution
The double feed shooting drill will start with a player behind at the X position, who will roll the crease and feed a cutter coming down from the top on a left hander feed. The next step is for that player that cut from the top, to roll back and accept a feed from the top left where another player has driven and is looking to feed. After that feed another player from the top left should drive down the alley and look to feed across crease to a player cutting from top right. That player will catch and shoot and then roll back for a feed from another player driving from x.
The drill allows for 2 shots from various locations and forces players to think through the drill
- Off Ball Offense
- Strong and Weak Hand Play
Variations/Progression/Increased difficulty (As your players improve their skills incorporate the following…)
Add defenders or have a coach stand in there and play soft defense to make the players work for the ball.
