Game: Dribble Score Race

This game is very competitive and will keep the players on their toes while having lots of fun.  Dribble Score Race will have players competing head-to-head in a race to score a lay-up from half-court. This game will get the players excited and eager to play.

To start, split the group up into two teams and give each player a number. For example, if there are 10 players each team will have numbers 1-5. Each player should have a basketball.

The key teaching point of this game is to emphasize proper footwork when attacking the rim, and to encourage a two-foot stop before they go up to score.

· When the coach calls a number, the players who were assigned that number will race to make a lay-up on their respective basket
