    Game: Star Passing

    Want your players to become star passers? Well, the game “Star Passing” can make them into one. This game/drill allows your players to work on passing and receiving and it gives the players a lot of touches throughout the game.
    Divide the players into small groups of 5 or 6. Have each group spread out in a circle (or star) with 1 basketball.
    1. Determine a pattern for the ball to work its way around the circle
    2. A suggested pattern is “passing two to the right” (see Diagram below)Star_Passing
    3. Each player should receive and make a pass before the pattern repeats
