Bauer 5 on 5 on 5

Jeff Bauer

Three teams of five. One team attacks and stays on offence, going back and forth until they turn over the ball or for a set number of possessions. The two teams at each end play a different defence.

The attacking team should read the defence, take good shots, take care of the ball, and take the shots their team wants, not what the defence gives them.

Dave Arseneault - the attackers have 10 seconds to shoot each time they get the ball, go for 10 possessions then rotate, score two points for a made 3-point shot and one point for all other makes (a foul on a shot is a make).

Tim Ballard (Winning Hoops) - to work on the fast break, the team waiting to play defence should be running sideline to sideline until the first attacker crosses halfcourt coming at them.

Kathy Delaney-Smith (ABQ) - continuous 5 on 5 on 5 - they like to practice zone offences this way, use coaches to fill in if there are not enough players, they don't press in the backcourt or set up transition situations.
