Basketball: Teach Trapping Skills

The Chaos drill teaches players to trap aggressively when playing defense. It also allows offensive players to practice against trapping situations. Finally, it's a fast and furious drill that improves player fitness.

How to Play
Divide your squad into three teams of four players, Team A has the ball, Team B is on defense and Team C is on the sidelines.

On your signal, Team A attacks, while Team B defends. When Team B gains possession on a miss, rebound, steal or inbounds pass, they head up the court while Team A changes roles and attempts to trap. In the meantime, Team C gets on the floor, ready to trap at half court in case Team B gets through Team A's pressure.

When Team B scores, misses or loses the ball, Team C goes on offense, Team B defends and Team A sets up at half court.

This continues back and forth for eight minutes.

Conclusion
This drill forces offensive players to work the ball through two teams that are applying defensive pressure and traps. On the defensive end, players learn to trap and press on both made and missed shot situations.
