This drill is actually a personal favorite. I’ve been running this drill on my own since before high school on days I couldn’t find friends to practice with. Getting in a good rhythm can almost be an almost meditative experience.
It’s easy to be a fan of individual drills. You can do them anywhere, anytime, and with minimal equipment. If you want to take more control over your own development, individual drills are the easiest way to do that.
As the first true “team skill” players learn, developing passing is crucial at youth levels. Young teams will often struggle to dribble and drive effectively, making passing the best way to move the ball around the court early in development.
Transition drills are great for more developed athletes. By mimicking the game situation of hustling back on defense or offense, not only do you develop a specific skill but you will improve physical conditioning as well.
