Around the World – Five teammates will be lined up around the three-point line. You will be on defense. You have fifteen tries to get three strikes on each player. Strikes are earned by preventing the shooter from making a basket. Once a teammate has three strikes, they are eliminated. This is a great drill for learning how to defend properly, and is one of the better drills for earning high VC consistently.
2-man rebound and post-up – You and another teammate will be fighting for rebounds on shots taken from the top of the three-point line. Whoever gets the rebound then gets to take a shot from the low post. You have twenty chances to grab the board and take the shot. This drill takes a lot of time, and doesn’t really provide much in the way of return of investment. That’s not to say it’s difficult, it’s just that you could be earning a better volume of VC elsewhere in the time it takes to complete this drill just once.
Screen and read – Learning the pick and roll, and how to defend against it, is an important fundamental that can be key to your success on the court. This drill will put you in the role of the defender, the screener, and the ballhandler (five tries each). It’s incredibly easy to earn VC in this drill, and is one of the few drills that will test you on multiple aspects of your game.
