In this video, you will discover an exercise to improve your counter-attack dribble and your lay-up.
The aim of the player on offense is to make a basket without being touched by their opponent.
Place a cone on either side of the center line, about 2 meters apart, near the sideline.
The offence player stands in position by the cone closest to the basket, with the player on defense by the other cone.
The offence player dribbles on the spot.
They can choose to start dribbling whenever they want. As soon as they start, the defender can also go and try to touch them before they shoot.
If the offence player scores without being caught, they get 2 points.
If they score after being caught, a point is granted to both players.
If they get caught and don't score, the defence player scores a point.
Practice the exercise on either side of the basket, switching roles after each shot.
If the exercise is too easy or too hard, adjust the distance between the cones.
The first player to score 10 points wins the game.
To do well at this exercise, the player on offence will have to dribble straight at the basket and shoot as fast as possible.
If they run along a curved trajectory, it will be easier for the defender to catch up with them.
To make the exercise more difficult, you can set a maximum of 3 dribbles for the offense player before they shoot.
In this exercise, the offence will have to perform a good counterattack dribble and control their speed as they shoot whilst running. Over to you!
