The objective of the Off the Ground Drill is to get the ball off the ground on a wing and move the ball and work on game situation passing, alley dodges, and roll backs for a shot.
Description of Drill-Execution
Coach rolls ball down the alley for wing to scoop. Wing immediately drives up the alley and moves the ball to a top middie who alley dodges a “dummy” defensive player or coach. That dodger will roll away from “pressure” and passes to a following top mid who will immediately re-dodge the weak side “dummy” defense or coach for a shot. After 5 minutes go on the reverse side.
- Roll back/cross body pass
Variations/Progression/Increased difficulty (As your players improve their skills incorporate the following…)
Change the number of passes, add an extra defender and work on a chasing double team, or vary the number of player on offense and work a stall for a set time period.
