Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

Close-out 4x

Frankston Blues

No ball. 5 closes out on 1 and calls "ball", 1 makes a one-step offensive move (vary the direction), 5 drop steps in the direction of the move and makes one defensive slide, retreats to the basket, then repeats the same sequence with close-outs on 2, 3 and 4. Next player 6 can start when 5 finishes with 1. Attackers should use correct triple-threat stance and jab footwork.

Once 5 is back at the start of the line, 5 replaces 1, 1-2-3 rotate, 4 goes to the end of the line.
