Easy basketball training drill – building an offense

Elvis Elvis

This drill applies to the smaller boy who has gone inside to replace the big man. Sometimes the defensive man assigned to him is unfamiliar with defending an inside man so this works to your advantage also.

You may set up your drill as follows:

Inside Series.

Easy basketball training drill   building an offense

Inside Series No. 1

#3 passes to #2; #2 fakes with a sharp stab step toward the baseline and then comes back into the ball. This maneuver makes it more difficult for the pass to be intercepted. #3 fakes a step away from the ball and then moves toward #2 and sets an inside screen with a jump shot. #2

fakes a drive toward the baseline and then comes back around #3 with a close enough drive so he brushes his man off. #2 may either drive all the way, stop and shoot a jump shot from the free throw line, or throw a quick return pass to #3 if the defense is caught switching. You may run this drill a number of times without defense and alternate your offensive men so they can run either position. Later on, when you add the defense, you get a good two man defensive workout also.
