Explosion Lay-Up Drill

One aspect most young players lack is the ability to use space effectively. While some may this drill for conditioning, it is excellent at teaching your players how to get to the rim with proper footwork using explosive steps and limited dribbles.

  1. Player starts underneath the rim with one basketball.
  2. Start dribbling towards the left wing with the right hand, turn and use one dribble with the same hand, striding out all the way to the rim for a right-handed lay-up.
  3. Immediately grab the rebound out of the net and repeat the process to the other wing using the left hand.
  4. Perform the drill for 35 seconds OR until the player makes 10 lay-ups.

After the players can perform the drill to PERFECTION. Make the drill more difficult, add a coach/teammate/manager with a pad to make the lay-up through contact.
