Drill of the Week: Hummer
Duration: 5 mins
Objective: 7 perfects full repetitions each side
Keys: Passing, Spacing, Cutting, Communication
Hummer is a drill that we like to use in our warm-up during practice. In this drill, we are set in 5 lines with the ball starting at the top of the key.
The first pass is made to a player flashing to the elbow. Once the player has received the pass, they will make a quick bounce pass to the wing player cutting to the basket.
As the wing player receives the ball, they will jump out of bounds to make a baseline flood pass to the opposite corner. Once the ball is the corner, the player will pass back up to the wing.
When the ball reaches the wing, the player will be looking to make a post feed to the player entering in from the baseline. Once the post feed is made, the player will come to a jump stop and throw a skip pass back to the first line to restart the process.
This drill is very fundamentally based, so we make sure our players talk without the ball, make hard cuts, get open to receive the passes, and come to meet the pass once they have received it.
We hope this serves you well!
