Basketball Transition Drill - 5 on 4 to 4 on 4
Ages: All Ages Youth Middle School High School+
Purpose of the Drill:
This is a great transition drill that works on a game-like situation where there is a transition from 5 on 4 to 4 on 4.
We got this drill idea from TC who left a comment about this drill on our Overload Defense Drill page.
- Start with 4 defenders and 5 offensive players.
- After a change of possession where the defense gets a stop or the offense scores, the last offensive player steps off of the floor to make it 4 on 4. In this situation, we will say player 4 missed a shot.
- If the new offense scores or the new defense gets a stop, the offensive player comes back on the floor to make it 5 on 4 again.
