Transition Defense

Setup: Offensive players receive colored wrist band, lines up on end-line, facing downcourt.  Defense lines up same way at halfcourt with back turned to the offensive players. The coach randomly gives out same color wristbands to players on defense.

Movement: On whistle, offense runs to other end-line.  Defense must sprint to free throw line, turn around, and then tag the offensive player with their corresponding color before they reach the other end-line.  Drill can be done with our without ball. 

Key Focus Points: Sprint the floor.  Recognizing who they are guarding.  Learning to go to the offensive player to guard during transition.
