Group players into teams inside the half court circle. Tell the teams to start jogging in an anti clockwise direction. Coach holds a ball and at a certain point in time throws the ball in the air inside the circle. The player who gets the ball starts a transition toward the designated basket. That players team follows suit and tries to score, as the other team tries to stop them. Coach should blow his whistle after a made/missed attempt and repeat.
Goals / purpose / skills
The drill helps transition defence and verbal communication in defensive transition.
One variation to this drill can find the coach taking players away from one of the teams at different points in time. This forces both teams to defend with a disadvantage and capitalise offensively with a man advantage.
