The 4th of the simple basketball plays is the fast break off a turnover made by the defense. Whenever their team makes an interception or steal, the players quickly move to fill the left lane and the right lane. The ball possessor dribbles quickly down the middle of the court. He/she dribbles to just inside the foul line and stops to take a shot or pass to an open teammate closer to the basket. These simple basketball plays are ones that grade school players can remember and do during the games. These plays often lead to makeable shots. This builds the confidence of grade school players as they see that they can get open for scores.
I will have a ball and be toward the wing position, about half-way between the baseline and the FT line extended. I want the player facing me, in ready, bent-knee stance, on good balance, with the arms extended toward the ball, hands anticipating a pass. I will pass in to the post and have them take the ball in to the chest, pressing the ball tight with both hands, elbows pointed out (parallel with the lane line). I emphasize always keeping the eyes on the ball, looking the pass right into their hands, before they attempt any other movement. Well do this several times, until the player is comfortable with the procedure and until I too feel they can do the drill and move on.
The first of the simple basketball plays is the dribble handoff. One player dribbles toward a teammate and hands off the ball to that teammate. It is at the moment of the handoff that a chance for a score occurs. The recipient of the handoff is to dribble hard to the basket or, if within shooting range, take a quick dribble or two and then take a shot. The key is to take advantage of the defense being a little out of position during the handoff.
