This quick little drill is a fun one for the youth while helping them with their defensive reactions and their off-ball offensive fakes and hesitations. You can allow the players to be as silly as they want or you can have them focus more closely on doing basketball movements.
Pair players off, ideally with similar speed and agility. Place pairs throughout the gym, using lines to denote boundaries for each group. Have players face each other along their lines. No basketballs to start.
