Bounce off and Re-Attack
Bounce-Off Then Re-Attack Lay-Up Pattern
Choose a dribble move and attack the middle.
Pretend help defense is in position. Instead of picking up the ball, or forcing a move, or forcing a shot, or making a bad pass, the Bounce-Off dribble allows you to withdraw and bounce away from a situation that you don’t like while still keeping your options open.
Choose a dribble move and re-attack the area that you just bounced off.
Finish with a lay-up.
Bounce-Off Re-Attack Jump Shot Pattern
Choose a dribble move and attack the rim.
Pretend help defense is in position. Just like the lay-up drill, you’ll Bounce-Off the action because you don’t like what you see.
Now that you have space, choose a dribble move and re-attack the area that you just bounced off.
Pull up for a jump shot.
Two Foot Layup
Got this drill from Duke and watching JJ Reddick. After catching the ball, crossover and get into the paint.
Objective is to get to the other side of the rim. Two foot layup allows player to get balance and protect the ball.
This is a game like drill that gives players confidence when penetrating the paint. Give them moves where they can score at the rim vs. defense.
- Crossover to the elbow. In the lane take one dribble with long hop step to create separation and make a two foot layup.
- Work on getting to the other side of the rim for shot off the glass. Use the rim as protection from the defender.
