Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

3 on 3 delay (no teams)

Hoop Tactics

9 players (or more), not in teams. 1-2-3 attack 4 and 5, 6 and 7 wait at the other end to defend the next attack. When the ball crosses centre 8 runs to touch the centre circle with a foot then defends, play to a stop or score.

4-5-8 attack 6, 7 and delay defender 9. One player out of 1-2-3 leaves to the halfcourt sideline (here 3), the other two remain to defend the next attack by 6-7-9, first touching the centre circle.


- 1 and 2 do not have to touch the centre circle
- with 11 or more players, all attackers go off after attacking, new defenders come on.

See Transition - 3 on 3 delay (teams), 2 on 2 delay.
