Lay-up Drill with 11 Elements
Setup: Half court, two lines at corners. Players in left line as shown perform skills 1-5 then move to the end of the right line. Players in the right line perform skills A-F then move to the end of the left line. This drill can be run with two balls to increase activity.
Introduction: All elements are basic and fundamental. Emphasis is on performing simple skills perfectly and on following directions. Proper execution is much more important than speed or changing the drill.
Pitfalls: Players taking shortcuts or omitting elements. Do not allow players to change the drill. Insist that lay-ups be initiated from the proper foot, for example and that V and L cuts are sharp, not rounded.
