3-PERSON PASS & PIVOT DRILL
Divide players into groups of three. Each group needs one basketball.
The rule for the defense is to foul the offensive player. Be aggressive with them without the intent to be too over zealous. But be physical by getting your hands on the offense trying to force them into being off balance.
The drill starts with 1 having the ball. 2 is on defense. 3 is on offense 12 to 15 feet away. 1 starts to pivot while 3 v-cuts and looks for a pass and calling "ball". 1 will continue pivoting until they can get clear to make a pass to 3.
When 1 passes the ball to 3, 2 replaces 1. 1 now sprints to 3 (who now has the ball) and plays physical defense on them. 3 will pivot with the ball while 2 v-cuts and calls for the ball.
3 will now pass to 2. 1 replaces 3. 3 sprints to 2 and defends.
Repeat this process for 30 seconds. Blow the whistle to stop the drill. Give the players a short rest and repeat. 3 thirty second sessions give the players a good workout.
Allow the offensive players one dribble before they pass (if needed) to get a better passing angle.
