3 Around 2

Set up: 3 Players stand on the perimeter of the half court with 2 post players just outside the lane.  The ball will begin with one of the outside players.  

Movement: The ball will begin with a perimeter player.  When the ball is passed to another perimeter player, the passing player should switch places with the player without the ball.  In the diagram, 1 passes to 2, then 1 switches places with 3.  The post players maintain their position for rebounds or passes from the perimeter.  Add defenders to loosely play spots to assist with offensive movements and finding open areas.

Key Focus Points: Emphasis on spacing, good passing and movement. Post players should be ready for passes and rebounds.
