PGC Fast Break: 1-on-1 Restrictions

This week’s workout from PGC Basketball imposes game-like restrictions on face-to-face competitions.

Coaches are always looking to improve their practice routine – especially when potential changes could rope in more wins. By running drills that mimic the speed and pressure of real games, athletes sharpen not only their athleticism, but also their decision-making.

This week’s workout from PGC Basketball imposes game-like restrictions on face-to-face competitions. From a lack of space to move, to limiting the time players have for a shot, these restrictions force athletes to improve and overcome their circumstances.

1-on-1 Restrictions

The drill’s name covers its concept: Players will compete 1-on-1 with restrictions in one (or more) of the following areas:

  • Time
  • Space
  • Dribbling

These restrictions raise the stakes and increase the difficulty of the 1-on-1 effort, helping players adjust to attacking a specific area of the floor, taking quicker shots, and dribbling more deliberately.

Plus, as athletes succeed or fail in their efforts, this drill is the perfect opportunity to self-evaluate their strengths and weaknesses.
