• Gate Passing Drill

  • Purpose

    Players practice passing into the post.

  • Drill Setup

    One offensive player goes into the post. Another sets up on the wing. There is a defender between them.

  • How It Works

    1. The wing player attempts to pass the ball to the post player who catches it and shoots.
    2. The defender tries to intercept the pass.
    3. When coach says rotate, the passer becomes the defender, the defender becomes the post player and the post player becomes the passer.

Players pass into the post against a defender.

  • Coaching Tips

    Stress “Fake a Pass to Make a Pass.”

    The passer should use a wraparound pass or a bowling pass (roll the ball). He should try to avoid using the two hand over the head pass (it’s too easy to pick off).
