    Drill: Pass & Replace

    Passing is one of the fundamental skills in basketball that all kids should focus on when learning the game. This is a simple drill that teaches the youth how to pass and catch while also developing the idea of cutting after a pass. This will get the kids into a good habit of passing then cutting, setting themselves up for future success!
    Divide the players into small groups of 3-5 and have each group break into 2 lines, with 1 ball at the front of one of the lines. Initially, lines should be approximately 10-15 feet apart.
    • Have players start by passing to their opposite line
    • After each pass, players will follow their pass to join the back of the opposite line
    Key Teaching Points:
    • Ensure players are calling out names before they pass to promote communication
    • Make sure players are looking where they want to pass
    • Ensure players are stepping in the direction they want to pass
    SKILL FOCUSPassing, Receiving, Coordination

    VARIATION:Phase A:
    • Increase the distance, having lines take a couple steps back to make longer passes
    • Have players alternate the types of passes they make (one-handed push pass, bounce pass, overhead pass)
    Phase B:
    • Add defense by having the player closeout to the player they passed to and play guided defense
    • Allow a dribble, so passers can escape their defender with one dribble before passing
    • Introduce a pass fake to get around the defender
