Playname: Backup
A full court dribble drill to practice 'backing up'

Player 1 and 2 start with a speed dribble towards a pylon (or defender).

When they arive at the pylon the dribble is low and fast (power dribble). They make two dribbles backwards and go sideways. When they arrive at the second pylon a speed dribble to the next pylon begins.

At the third pylon the backup starts again
The next two players start when the first have crossed the middle line.

After player 1 and 2 have 'backuped' again they make a short sideway driblle and go hard to the basket to make there lay-up.

Make sure the players see the court when dribbling.
For the flow of the movement while going side ways crossovers can be handy.

Use the left hand
Use two balls to improve ball handling
