Title: Full Court Lay-ups


Level: Beginners and Intermediate

Instructions: There are two lines of players, each out of bounds first on the right side of the court around the shoulder area.

Starting out there are two players in front of the hoops at each basket. They throw up the ball and bounce it off the backboard, the first person in each outlet line will start to go towards the opposite hoop and call "outlet".

The player with the ball will pass the basketball to the outlet man and then get into their line. After the person makes a lay-up, he/she will stay in front of the hoop and get the rebound for the next person, then get into the next line.

This is repeated until each player has done a lay-up twice at each basket. Then you repeat the process with power lay-ups instead. After shooting lay-ups, the players can do 15-foot baseline jump shots.

Many variations available as well
by: Joe Waters - webmaster

This is an extremely effective basketball drill just as Jeremy describes; however, there are also some variations that can be added that will help the players work on a few more offensive skills.

For instance, when the outlet player receives the basketball and begin to dribble toward the basket, the coach can have them...

  • Perform a stop and go move at the three-point line and then drive to the basket.
  • Dribble towards the wing and then perform a crossover dribble and drive to the basket.
  • Dribble towards the wing and then perform a reverse dribble and drive to the basket.
  • Drive to specific spots on the court for pull-up jump shots.
  • And many more


The idea here is that the players can work on any number of offensive basketball skills within this drill, without changing the flow of the drill itself.

As the coach, be creative, but make sure the organization of the drill remains the same.

This is an excellent basketball drill...thanks Jeremy.
