2 Competitive Drills To Improve Passing For Youth Basketball Teams
In the video clip from Bob Bigelow's Coaching Youth Basketball The Right Way, Bob demonstrates two great drills that you can use with your teams to improve passing.
Monkey In The Middle
Two players are on offense. One player in the middle is the monkey and is on defense.
Offensive players pass the ball back and forth. They use fakes to get the ball past the defender. No lob passes are allowed. Wait for the defender to recover to the offense before throwing the next pass.
When the defender tips a pass, the passer goes to be the monkey in the middle.
Bull In The Ring
Four to five players form a circle around a defender which is the bull in the ring.
Offensive players cannot pass the ball to the person next to them.
When the ball is tipped, the passer turns into the bull in the ring.
