Pass and Replace sets up this way
One player on each sideline, about 28 feet from the endline (or where the hashmarks are on some courts).
Remaining players are in a single line under each basket. The first player in each line has a ball.
The drill starts with the players under the baskets (1 and 4) passing to the players on the side line (2 and 5).
2 and 5 then pivot (the coach can mandate a particular pivot if he likes) and pass the ball up the sideline (the coach mandate a particular type of pass if he likes) to 3 and 6.
After a player passes the ball, he sprints to replace the player he passed to. 1 passes to 2 and replaces him while 2 passes to 3 and replaces him, etc.
|When the ball reaches the second player on the sideline, in this case 3 and 6, they take the ball on the dribble to the basket. The coach can limit the number of dribbles if he finds it effective (I always allowed only 1 dribble).|
The next players in line (7 and 10) rebound the layup, pass up the sideline and replace the players they passed to. The shooter goes to the end of the line uner the basket.
The ball goes up the sideline as players pass and replace.
|Again, when the ball reaches the second player on the sideline, he takes the ball for a layup, the next player in line rebounds and continues the drill.|
As illustrated, the drill is run with 2 ball but can be run with as many balls as necessary to keep the entire team involved. With 12 players, I typically use 3 balls.
The drill is moderated by time and makes. So, if we run the drill for 5 minutes and 2 balls, our goal is 100 makes. If we use 3 balls, it's 125.
