Cone Tap Conesting Drill
From time to time, I’ll throw a twist into one of our small group workout games just to level up the fun for the players. This small-sided game is a modified game of 1-on-1 tag.
The shooter will start with a small cone in their hands.
When the Dish passes out to the coach, the player runs anywhere on that side of the court, set down their cone, move away from the cone, receive a pass from the coach, then shoot a jump shot.
The defender, who is chasing after the shooter, must tap the top of the cone before contesting the jump shot of the shooter.
