11-Person Fast Break

10:00 min

Materials: 1 ball, a full court with 2 baskets


Start with players in four outlet positions. Two players, one in each lane for defense; and three players at half court with one ball. The three players begin the game by attacking the two defenders attempting to score. Once a shot is taken, all five players become rebounders. Whoever secures the rebound makes an outlet pass to whichever outlet is closer.

The outlet getting the ball dribbles to the middle of the court; the player who made the pass fills the lane on the side the pass was made to; the first player in line in the other outlet position fills the other lane. These three players now have a 3 on 2 going the other way. The four players who did not get the rebound go to one of the open positions, two go to the outlet positions and two stays on the court to play defense. The same pattern continues at the other end of the court and will continue back and forth throughout the drill.


  • Name the outlet
  • Defensive tips – jap and drop


  • Fast Break and transition game
  • Positioning in terms of rebound


  • A fun and high-intensive drill, that teaches a little bit of everything.
