Lane Agility Drill
The drill involves placing the cones around the hoop and accelerating from either side of the line to the next corner.
Rapidly switch to the defense and shuffle to the next corner before backpedaling to the third end and swapping to the breakdown while jumbling to the initial end.
Agility Ladder Drill
This drill can be performed by alternating feet on the holes, hopping outside and inside, and executing single-leg jumps.
In a dribbling position, go around the cone's one side, moving diagonally on the second cone's other side, and turn 180 degrees to repeat the movements in reverse.
Weave and Shoot
The drill is executed with two companions by passing and crossing the ball through the court, weaving across until a player makes a basket.
The execution of the drill requires sprinting and inverting directions rapidly through cones, using the whole width and length of the court.
