Four-Minute Layup Drill

By Online Basketball Drill, 11/30/17, 12:00PM CST


Make sure that all players are using proper chest pass fundamentals, snapping the ball and finishing with the thumbs down and fingers pointing out.

Okay, this is one of my all-time favorite drills for passing, finishing, communication and conditioning.


  • Set up four passers, with one at each elbow on both sides of the court.
  • The rest of your players will form two lines, at opposite ends of the court, right where the right lane line and baseline meet.  (see the diagram below)
  • Each line has one ball.


1.  On your command, the player at the front of the line will hit the passer at the elbow, then start sprinting down court, making sure to stay wide.
