3-on-3 No-Dribble Keep Away
This drill provides a fun way to teach kids to move without the ball to get open for a pass and provides a context for developing an understanding of effective spacing. For the passer, it provides practice in pivoting and protecting the ball from a defender. Obviously, it helps kids overcome dribble mania and to see the court.
- Teach kids simple pivoting principles before turning them loose in this drill.
- Teach kids how to v-cut and backdoor cut.
- As the skill level of the kids advance, introduce screens away from the ball to free cutters.
- Provide defenders with the basics of defending the passing lanes effectively. This is a foundational drill for denial defensive techniques.
