Drill 8 – Game to 5, 2 in a Row
This is the same as drill #7 with a twist. In this drill the team that wins the first sideout gets a free ball.
The twist is the free ball goes to the defender’s opposite side. If the defender is a right side player, the free ball goes to the left side of the court. You must get two sideouts in a row to win a real point.
• Same coaching and reinforcement from drill #7. Stop the play if needed.
