Taking Charges Drill

Taking Charges

Simple basketball charge drill that sets up players to practice taking charges. I often used this charge drill to reinforce with my players that no one dies from taking charges. It’s a good way to warm them up to the idea of taking some contact.

  • Players form two lines. One under the basket, one on the wing with a ball
  • First player in the baseline line steps to the middle of the paint and chops their feet.
  • First player in the wing line gets in triple threat position
  • On the coaches call the player with the ball races to the block
  • The defensive player in the paint sprints to the block to take a charge.
