In defense, you want your players to have both hands, knees bent (not slouching back!), And the head. This is the correct posture, and you should always defend militant has this attitude be. In addition, players must slide on the ground, instead of holding the ball and the player is running in front of them after the man with the ball.In this exercise, use cones, a vast area of ​​8-12 meters and at least 30 meters long mark. One of the players in this exercise ball and another practice their defensive slideshow. The player with the ball in motion to the left, until it touches the side, dribbling and right until hitting another limit. The purpose of the defensive player is to force the aggressor to go all the way to the sidelines, without contamination or loss position. This is a sort of zigzag pattern and create defensiveness and dragging.


2. line sprints

All players compete on the basis of one side of the court. In this exercise, players will continuous operation of the baseline to the free throw line at half court line free line, be before, back to the starting value back to the baseline to start, again to the baseline, and then all the way to the opposite end of the court and back. So players will not stop until they sprint go to each row and then have ended again. To the sound of the whistle-player begins to move from one line to another. The problem is that they hand to touch the ground on each line. So if you start to run and the free throw line, they hit the ground.

On the left side are online rebounds, and the right side you will see the basket line. The first child has the ball on the tires and the goalkeeper is as fast as possible (flying without the ball!), Jump on his left and pull out the provision of the right leg. The rebounder in the left lane and the ball in the air to the next child in line (can speed things up, to use two or three balls). Once done, then the process is changed to the left lane is the layup line and the line will recover.


4. Fast Break Drill Lay-up

Again most of his points off the lay-ups, so that if you do this exercise can be optimized, resulting in an effective season. As previous drilling, starting with the right hand, then move to the left. To save time, you can share in two groups, which will be on opposite sides of the court.In this exercise, each player begins on the opposite side of the court and dribbles the ball as quickly as possible, until they reach the lens and the right color photographs. As this happens, the player shooting on the other side Dodge suggested structures on your destination.
