PROTECT THE PRIZE BLOCKOUT DRILL
*Four offensive players line up around the three point line. One defensive player will be assigned to each of the offensive players.
*Defensive players start by facing the offensive players (their back to the coach).
*Coach stands underneath the basket holding a basketball in front of them.
EXECUTING THE DRILL
*When the coach slaps the ball, the drill begins.
*The goal of the offense is to do what they have to do to touch the ball the coach is holding.
*The goal of the defense is to prevent the offense from touching the ball.
*Defense must make contact, turn and blockout the offensive player.
*The drill goes for five seconds.
*Offense and defense switch.
*Keep score. Give 1 point to the offense if someone touches the ball within five seconds. Give 2 points to the defense if they prevent the offense from touching the ball. First team to 10 wins.
