Individual Defensive Help Drill

Individual defensive drill to reinforce proper help position and emphasizes quick transitions from defense to offense. Good drill to run before team shell.

  1. The first player passes the ball up to the coach (X1) at the top of the arc. Then he goes and closes out.
  2. Next, the coach passes the ball to another coach (X2) in the corner. The player jumps to the ball and drops down into a help position.
  3. The coach with the ball drives, and the defensive player walls up.
  4. The coach then throws the ball to the other end of the court. The player chases it down and scores at that end.
