5 on 3 + 2 - Fast Break Drills

Home > Coaching > Drills > Transition Offense > 5 on 3 + 2 - Fast Break Drills

Here is a great game-like fast break drill that gives the offense opportunities to recognize what options are open as they execute the 5 on 3 break. If they advance the ball quickly enough, they can get the shot that they want before the defense fills in. If not, they transition to a game-like situation where they have to execute their offense in order to score.

Check out the video and diagrams below from Don Kelbick's Transition Offense and the Four-Second Fast Break.

Drill begins with "Annie Over", Coach says "Go", we rebound, pitch out and we run our break.

The two defenders at midcourt have to wait for the ball to cross half court, then sprint to the middle, touch hands and hustle down to join the defense.

Nice drill! But I was wondering if there is one that I could do for groups of 4,5 or 6. The kids participating would be 9-12 years of age. Thanks!
