COMMENTS ON THIS DRILL: This passing drill is meant to overload the middle player and will help players improve passing speed, accuracy, strength, and confidence.

If done properly, the middle player really gets a workout! You can also add a twist to this drill and work on pivoting at the same time.

Position three players as shown in the diagram.

#1 and #2 will need basketballs.

 

 

 

#1 passes to #3 and #3 immediately returns the pass.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Player 3 pivots to #2.

Player #2 passes to #3 and #3 immediately returns the pass.

 

#3 turns to #1.

#1 passes to #3 and #3 immediately returns the pass.

Continue for 30 seconds or so many rotations before switching players around.

To make this a multi-use drill, use a specific pivot to turn (drop step pivot, front pivot, etc).

Focus on:
+ Accurate passes.
+ Move as quickly as possible without sacrificing form and accuracy.
+ Stepping toward your receiver.
+ When catching, extend your hands.
