This is a good opening drill that looks great and gets the kids running, passing and shooting lay-ups.
One player is in each of the four corners, the rest line up under the basket. The drill starts when the ball is passed to a half court corner. This play can go either direction, depending on whether the pass goes to #1 or #4. Run it so that each player has a few left handed lay-ups and a few right handed lay-ups.
The only rule to remember is take the place of the person you pass to. Its that simple. #5 passes to #1 and takes #1's place. #1 passes to #3 and takes that corner.
Players should anticipate the pass a little. Here, #2 has left the corner a little early to get the pass from #3. When #2 passes to #4, #4 should be on the move to the basket.
After #4 makes the lay-up, he/she goes to the end of the line under the basket. #6 takes the ball and passes to #5 to begin again.
When the players are comfortable with the drill, add a second ball. When the rebounder passes ball to the half court corner to start the drill. The next man in line has a second ball. As soon as the passer of ball number one is in position, the second ball is introduced to him. The play doesn't change, but now there is one ball chasing the other.
