2 Player Passing Basketball Drill

For this drill, we need 2 players and 1 ball. Simple as that. Player 1 is on the free throw line, and Player 2 is behind the baseline. Player 2 passes the ball to Player 1. while Player 1 is running backward. After they exchange 2 passes, Player 1 turns around and dribbles to the hoop for a layup (we do the same drill back) while Player 2 chases after Player 1.

Coaching Points:

  • Make sure the players don’t travel when they turn around and go for a dribble.
