Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

3 times and out


Teams of 3 players each, the defenders must make three stops in a row to get out, the offence changes on each possession (only offence scores, win on offence).
- offence stays on a score, rotates on a stop
- three teams (4 on 4 on 4)
- two teams (5 on 5)
Ben Jacobson - 3-on-3 live, defence is out on a perfect possession or three stops in a row.
Tanya McKay - 4 teams of 3 or 3 teams of 4, 3 stops in a row to get out (or 2 or 4), but re-set the count to zero for bad defence, e.g., an uncontested shot, no help on dribble penetration, not boxing out, not communicating on screens, lack of effort.
goxavier.com - 3 times and out - four teams of four players, defence has to get 3 stops in a row, new offence on every possession (from halfcourt), can also be done for rebounding with three players.
Ernie Woods - when working on halfcourt offence, the defence must make 4 to 6 stops to switch to offence, so the offence will be playing against tougher defence.
Harbir Bains - baseball - defence must make 3 stops to switch to offence (3 strikes and out for the offence).
Mike Rutter
- 4 on 4 on 4 no paint - defence must make 3 perfect stops in a row (no paint, contest every shot, block out, rebound)
- Baseball they like each inning to be a different series, e.g., transition offence, halfcourt offence, out of bounds sets.
See Scrimmage - Cut-throat, 5 on 5 halfcourt stops, Spurs 4 on 4 on 4 (win on defence).
