5-minute drill to develop post play and peripheral visual skills in basketball players
Pair up players with one passer and one receiver.
Receiver must, at all times, look directly into the eyes of the passer and not at the ball.
Receiver must track ball using peripheral vision only.
Step 1: Passer throws ball to receiver’s out-stretched hand, alternating between right and left.
Step 2: Passer throws bounce pass to receiver’s side, alternating between right and left, and forcing the reciver to move a few steps to the side.
Step 3: Passer throws the ball high, just beyond receiver’s line of vision to receiver’s out-stretched hand, alternating between right and left.
Do this drill for 5 minutes every day to develop your peripheral visualskills.
