Transition is a continuous 3 on 3 drill that’s fun and challenging, with two teams competing against each other, while focusing on the Dribble Drive Break/Sideline Break and defensive transition.
The drill continues the work started in the Scramble 11 man break drill, using the same tactics, but now requiring the wings to beat their man to force the outnumbered situation.
Players may forget to run the FB properly in this drill. Remind them when needed. Use Dribble Drive options.
Defensively the drill enforces the quick return run and players have to communicate to pick up the attacking players.
The O-team starts with three players on offense and the X-team with three on defense. Both teams have players standing by at the foul lines extended at their defensive end.
When O-team lose the ball the three offensive players become defenders at the other end.
Any defender can get the rebound to stay in the drill. X2 rebounds the ball and outlets to X5 coming from the nearest sideline.
X2 sprints up the opposite sideline, going to the block when X4 – the opposite wing – gets the ball. X5 trails.
Shot clock may be used (7-10 sec).
