• Power Layups

  • Purpose

    Players practice taking the ball strong to the hoop.

  • Drill Setup

    Players line up at the side of the lane.

  • How It Works

    1. The player at the front of the line sweeps the ball, takes one power dribble, jump stops and shoots a layup on that side of the basket.
    2. Next they sweep the ball, take two power dribbles, jump stop and shoot a layup on the other side of the rim.
    3. Run the drill from both sides of the lane.

The player takes one or two power dribbles and shoots a layup.

  • Coaching Tips

    Players should be driving hard to the basket and going up strong on the shot.

    Make sure players are staying balanced on their jump stop and really exploding off the floor on the shot.
