Tip #15 War

War is one of my favorite team drills. It works on endurance, rebounding, boxing out, fast break, and communication.

For this drill the more people the better, up to 5 on 5. You can use one on one but it takes away the team aspect. You will split up into two teams. Offense around the three point line and defense in the paint. Partner up with someone who will be a challenge to guard or have a even matched opponent. The coach starts out with the ball and will intentionally miss the shot. When the shot goes up the defensive will find their matchup, box out, and explode for the board. Offense will try to maneuver around the defense to get the rebound and put it back up for a shot. If the offense gets the rebound they go back up with a quick shot or pass to a teammate for a better look. If the defense gets the ball they turn and push it full court and try to score on the fast break. If they miss the shot then the boxing out and rebound cycle continues. The drill ends when one team gets the rebound and scores.

This drill uses fundamentals to improve your game. It’s extremely active and enjoyable by getting players together almost like a scrimmage atmosphere. This is what most young players ask for. Try it out in your next practice and let me know how it goes.
