This drill in particular is not only going to get a high repetitions when it comes to layups, but pivoting and attacking the basket as well.

Pay close attention to the details talked about when performing the drill. The best player to be able to develop the skill performed in the drill is through proper technique.

  1. Hi Coach,

    Great little drill.

    For players U/14’s and above I tend to ask them to try and get to the hoop in one drill and two steps.

    Good little drill for some individual warm-up sessions.
