More press breaker drills and tips.


  • You'll use the entire court in this drill and you can go 3 on 3, 4 on 4, or 5 on 5.
  • There is only one rule: Your players cannot dribble the ball.
  • This forces players to make accurate passes, move to get open, meet the pass, use the pivot, use pass fakes, and create good passing angles.
  • Award 1 point for each completed pass and 2 points for each pass that leads to a successful lay up.
  • Each team gets one offensive opportunity.
  • The team with the most points wins.

Points of Emphasis:

  • When faced with difficult conditions, help players see how they can get open.
  • Meet the pass.
  • Move to get open.
  • Use pass fakes.
  • Use your pivot to get the pass angle.
  • Throw crisp and accurate passes.
  • Pass away from the defense.
  • Receivers should extend their hand away from the defense and show a target.

Motivation/Teaching Tips:

  • You can add a little extra incentive by making the losers to do push ups or awarding the winner.
