Three Stop Halfcourt

The objective of the Three Stop Halfcourt drill is to emphasize the defensive aspects in the half court game. Focus on strong defense and rebounding to get an important stop.

Three Stop Halfcourt

Setup

half court, two teams of 4 players.

Instructions

Half court basketball.  Choose one team to begin on defense.  That team will stay on defense until they get three "stops" in a row.  A stop is where the offensive team fails to score on a possession.  Keep score.  As long as a team stays on offense they continue racking up points.  Once a team gets three stops in a row they become the offensive team.

Variations

Can be done with any numbers....5v5, 4v4, 3v3 etc.  Vary the number of stops needed to switch from defense to offense.

Coaching Points

Focus on good team defense.  Active hands and active feet.  Communication and providing help when needed.  Blocking out and rebounding.  This will help a team greatly in tight games when they need to step up defensively.
