Full Court Press Breaker Drill
This full court drill is great for breaking pressure while working on skills such as ball handling, passing, and cutting. This drill overloads the court with defenders and makes the offensive players work twice as hard to break the pressure.
- You can use different variations.
Here are a few examples:
- 3 on 2
- 4 on 3
- 7 on 5
In the diagram to the right, we use 4 defenders and 3 offensive players.
- Have the offense take the ball out of bounds. From there, the offense tries to break the press and score.
If limited on time, we will have the offense start the drill over as soon as they pass half-court. You can vary the press between full-court denial, full-court, or 3/4 court (or anything else you think of) to adjust to the types of pressure you will face.
