3 ACTIVITY PATTERN PASSING MIDDLE SCHOOL Prep 3 balls (or a variety of tossables) per 5-7 students 4 hoops Music and player (optional) Set Place hoops in corners; fill them with a variety of tossables. Form groups of 5-7; each in a circle with a ball/ manipulative. Teach 1. In Pattern Passing you will cooperate and communicate to pass the ball around your circle following a pattern. It will be like juggling in a group. 2. On the music, begin with a pass across the circle to anyone not directly next to you. 3. Continue passing until everyone has received a pass and the ball returns to the 1 st person. 4. Repeat, following the same pattern until you have successfully passed in sequence 3X, then add a 2 nd ball following the same pattern. When you are successful with 2, try it with 3 balls simultaneously, all following the same pattern. 5. Cues No one should catch the ball twice, until everyone has caught it once. Keep your hands up and ready to receive a pass. As soon as you have passed the ball, watch for the next one from your passer. 6. Challenges How quickly can you get the ball back to the 1 st player 5X? How many objects can your group juggle without dropping the ball? 7. Think About Did you have to cooperate during today s activity? How? Did you communicate? When? How? How did trust factor into your game? How did passing objects of different size, shape, and weight objects affect your group? COOPERATIVES 11

4 PATTERN PASSING EXTENSIONS Freeze Ball Begin Pattern Passing with 1 ball for about seconds. On Freeze! whoever has the ball holds it overhead. All others in the group quickly move in a file line behind the ball holder. The line begins moving (walking or jogging) around perimeter doing Pass the Hat. First in line passes overhead to 2 nd in line and on down the line until it reaches the last person who runs with the ball to the front of the line. Then, all form a circle and continue with Pattern Passing in the set sequence. Elevator While passing, start in a standing position, then move to kneeling, and, finally, sitting. Now back up to a standing position. Pattern Passing at home? Heck yeah! You need people (semi-coordinated adults will do) and a few small empty water bottles. Add to the challenge by filling each water bottle with a different amount of water. Screw the lid on tight (unless you are outside, it s hot and everyone needs to cool down). Get in a circle and start passing. Please don t pick on the clumsy adults. Remember, it s not their fault that Pattern Passing wasn t invented in the 1800 s. NASPE #1, 2 Throwing and catching #5, 6 Cooperation and teamwork Your State (Write in here) Add more movement by having students jog in place while passing. Provide a variety of tossable objects (size, weight, color, shape, etc.) to keep students challenged. Don t tell students how to juggle 3 or more balls at once. Let them solve it on their own. Beanbags are good for this activity; when dropped they don t roll away. NOTES 12

5 ACTIVITY 3-ON-3 BASKETBALL MIDDLE SCHOOL Prep 20 PACES 1 pinnie per 2 students 1 ball per 6 students 2 hoops Set Use a half basketball court per group of 6. If there are not enough courts, create a medium (14X20 paces) activity area per group of 6 and place a target at each end. Form groups of 3; 2 groups per court; 1 group wears pinnies and begins on Offense; 1 ball per court. Teach = Hoops = Offense = Defense 1. In 3-on-3 Basketball the object is to make a basket after completing at least 3 passes to different groupmates. (If your court has no basket, your goal is to pass to a groupmate over the endline after 3 passes.) 2. Offense begins with a pass. 3. Play goes as in regular basketball. If Defense steals the ball, they begin at 0 and try for 3 passes in a row. 4. Cues for Offense Spread out and use the entire area. Move to get open for a pass. Use the give and go. 5. Cues for Defense Play player-to-player and guard someone your size and speed. Intercept a pass to get the ball. You may not guard anyone closer than 3'. 6. Challenges How many points can your group score in 3 minutes? Can each member of your group make a basket? 7. Continue until signal. 8. Think About... Name the skills that were involved in playing 3-on-3. Can you design a drill that would incorporate those skills? 14 PACES BASKETBALL 39

6 3-ON-3 BASKETBALL EXTENSIONS 3-on-3 Royal Tournament Play 3-on-3 in a Royal Court Tournament format. On my signal (3-5 minutes of play) whoever is behind moves down to the next court while the team that is ahead moves up a court. Play 4-on-4 Royal Tournament Play 4-on-4 in a Royal Court Tournament format. On my signal (3-5 minutes of play) whoever is behind moves down to the next court while the team that is ahead moves up a court. Playing a game of basketball requires a lot of skills. Staying healthy requires a lot of vitamins. It is recommended that you take a multi-vitamin or eat foods containing the following vitamins on a daily basis: Biotin, Folate, and Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D, E and K. The best way to get your vitamins is by eating a variety of fruits and vegetables of all different colors. NASPE #1, 2 Moving efficiently in general space, offensive and defensive strategies #3, 4 Aerobic capacity #5, 6 Cooperation, accepting challenges Have students choose their level of participation by having them select from nice and easy, recreational, or hard core groups to play with. NOTES Your State (Write in here) 40

7 MIDDLE SCHOOL ACTIVITY 3-CATCH WITH A POST PLAYER Prep 4 spot markers per 7 students 1 pinnie per 2 students 1 ball per 7 students Set Create medium grid (15X15 paces) per group of 7. Form groups of 7; 1 group and ball per grid. Each group consists of 3 Offensive Players, 3 Defensive Players and 1 Post Player. The group with pinnies begins on Offense. = Post Teach 1. The goal of 3-Catch with a Post Player is to make 3 catches, each to a different member of your group. 2. Offensive players do this by pivoting, passing and moving to an open space. Dribbling is not allowed. 3. In the center of the grid stands a Post Player. Either group can pass to that player when the group needs help. The Post Player must pass the ball back to the group from which they received the pass. 4. Each Defender guards a player from the other group. After 3 catches, the Offense earns 1 point, and the group scored upon has the ball. 5. If a turnover occurs (incomplete pass, ball out of bounds, defense intercepts), group roles are reversed. Offense becomes Defense and vice versa. (Rotate Post Player after 3 turnovers.) 6. Principle of 3s in effect. 7. Cues for Offense Spread out and use all the space you have. Move to get open for a pass. Use the give and go. Use the Post Player. 8. Cues for Defense Play player-to-player and guard someone your size and speed. Keep at least 3' away from the person you re covering, and the ball. 9. Challenges How many points can you score on offense? 10. Think About Name skills involved in playing 3-Catch with a Post Player. In what 2 areas was your group most proficient? Which aspects of your play need more practice? 15 PACES 33 BASKETBALL

8 3-CATCH WITH A POST PLAYER EXTENSIONS Royal Court Play 3-Catch with a Post Player in a Royal Court format. On my signal (3-5 minutes), whoever is behind moves down to the next court while the group that is ahead moves up a court. 4-on-4 Post (Enlarge the grid area.) Play 4-on-4 3-Catch with a Post Player. (Advanced learners) 3-Catch as before, but remove the Post Player, allow dribbling, and try for 3 catches in a row. Quick and powerful passing is an important skill in basketball. To improve your passing power and quickness, work on improving your shoulder, chest and triceps muscles. Do as many push-ups as you can in a row. Take a break for a minute. Do another set. Take another 1-minute break. Do a 3 rd and final set of push-ups. Do this workout 3X a week and track your progress on a chart. NASPE #1, 2 Moving efficiently in general space, throwing and catching #3, 4 Aerobic capacity #5, 6 Cooperation, accepting challenges Small cones can be used in place of spot markers for grids. Pinnies Rule: Group wearing pinnies gets the ball first and always faces the same direction. NOTES Your State (Write in here) 34

9 ACTIVITY KEEP AWAY (2-ON-1) MIDDLE SCHOOL Prep 4 spot markers per 3 students 1 ball per 3 students Set Create medium grid (10X10 paces) per group of 3. Form groups of 3; each group in a grid with 1 ball. Teach 1. Keep Away (2-on-1) develops both offensive and defensive skills. 2. The object of the game is for the 2 Offensive players to pass the ball to each other, keeping the ball away from the Defender. Passes should go to either the R or L and not over the head of the Defender. 3. Principle of 3s in effect: Defender must stay 3' away the player with the ball; not in the middle. Offensive player must pass the ball within 3 seconds. Passes must travel a minimum of 3'. 4. (Scoring optional after allowing time for practice.) Offense scores a point for each successful catch. Defense scores 1 point for touching the ball while in the air and 2 points for a successful steal. 5. (Change Defender every minute to promote equal opportunities.) 6. Cues for Defense Keep arms up to try to contact the ball. Move quickly. 7. Cues for Offense Begin in ready position with an established a pivot foot. Passes cannot go over the Defender s head. Move to get open, using hands to ask for the ball. Cut to open space at an angle. Make quick passes. Fake high, bounce pass low. Fake low, pass head level. Work both sides of the body. 8. Challenges How many passes can you complete on offense? How many passes can you deflect on defense? 9. Think About Which skills were involved in playing Keep Away? Which skills do you need to practice more? When/where will you practice? 10 PACES 29 BASKETBALL

10 KEEP AWAY (2-ON-1) EXTENSIONS Choose Passer or Receiver The Defender must choose to cover either only the Receiver or the Passer. They announce who it will be when they become Defender. With Dribble Passers may dribble a maximum of 3X before passing. Be your best and Keep Away from things that can ruin your future. Drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, watching as someone bullies another student, or hanging out with negative friends. We all make mistakes, but learn from them. Play Keep Away when it comes to health risks and be in it to win it! NASPE #1, 2 Passing and receiving, intercepting passes #3, 4 Aerobic capacity #5, 6 Cooperation, accepting challenges Your State (Write in here) Practice this drill for short periods of time but revisit the activity often. Once learned, use as an ASAP. Reduce time spent giving instruction by stating the desired outcome first, then 1 or 2 steps to achieve it. NOTES 30

11 ACTIVITY GIVE AND GO MIDDLE SCHOOL Prep 4 spot markers per group of 3 (to create grids) 1 ball per 3 students Set Create medium grid (10X10 paces) per group of 3. Do not share spots with adjacent grids. Each grid must have its own 4 spots. Form groups of 3: place 1 group and 1 ball per grid. 10 PACES Teach 1. Today s activity is the Give and Go. It is a simple and effective offensive play used in basketball and many other sports. 2. (Use a group to demonstrate.) Pass ( give ) the ball to either person in your triangle, then go by moving between the players to a position that forms another equilateral triangle. 3. If you want to receive the pass, show the Passer you are ready by asking for the pass with your hands and your eyes. 4. Repeat the above action, with the next person passing the ball and moving between the players. 5. Repeat using chest, bounce, or overhead passes until the stop signal. 6. Cues Call Receiver s name before you pass the ball. Be sure everyone is set in the triangle before you make the next pass. 7. Think About Did the group cooperate and attempt to help each other successfully complete this drill? 10 PACES BASKETBALL 19

12 GIVE AND GO EXTENSIONS Fake Pass Fake the pass once or twice before you pass the ball to the next person. Dribble then Pass After receiving the pass, dribble the ball twice before passing, then moving for another reception. Nutrition has a give and go, too. Healthy carbohydrates like whole grains, fruits and vegetables GIVE you energy so you can GO. Your body can quickly turn these good Carbohydrates into energy, while fats and proteins take longer to convert. Need a quick pick-me-up? Grab some fresh fruits or vegetables for the Give and Go your body needs! NASPE #1, 2 Passing and receiving the ball #3, 4 Participation, aerobic capacity #5, 6 Cooperation, accepting challenges Your State (Write in here) Reduce time spent giving instruction by stating the desired outcome first ( the object is... ), then 1 or 2 steps to achieve it ( you do that by... ). Emphasize the importance of cooperative learning in this passing drill. Explain the importance of reciprocal teaching, with each person in the group attempting to help anyone who does not understand the drill. NOTES 20

13 ACTIVITY MOVING TO OPEN SPACE MIDDLE SCHOOL Prep spot markers per group of 3 (to create grids) 1 ball per 3 students Set Create medium grid (8X8 paces) per group of 3. Do not share spots with adjacent grids. Each grid must have its own 4 spots. 4 3 Form groups of 3: place 1 group and 1 ball per grid. 8 PACES Teach 1. Moving to Open Space will help you get open and receive a pass. 2. (Use a group to demonstrate.) Take a position on spots 1, 2, and 3. The 4 th spot is the open space. 3. On my signal, player on spot 2 moves to spot 4 to receive a pass being made by the player on spot 3. The Receiver and the pass should arrive at spot 4 simultaneously. 4. Player on spot 4 now has the ball and passes to player moving from spot 1 who is moving to the open spot Player on spot 2 now has the ball and passes to player on spot 3 who is moving to the open spot Continue until signal. 7. Cues for Passer Be patient so that your pass is received on the spot when the Receiver arrives. Lead your Receiver with the pass. 8. Cues for Receiver Check your speed so you reach the spot at the same time as the pass. Keep hands up and ready. 9. Challenges Can you reverse the direction of the pass on the signal? Can you use both chest and bounce passes? 10. Think About Would practicing this drill improve our team play? How? What cues are important to remember in this drill? 8 PACES BASKETBALL 17

14 MOVING TO OPEN SPACE EXTENSIONS Defensive Player (Create groups of 4. Place 1 player in the middle to play defense.) The object of the game is to make 4 catches in a row, each to a different person in your group. The ball can be moved in any direction at any time. Defensive Player No Spots (Create groups of 4. Place 1 player in the middle to play defense. Remove spots from the grid.) Practice this drill, 3 on 1, without the spots but within the grid area. Enlarge the grid as needed. Can you create your own pass-andmove drill? Get some friends and come up with a drill together. Practice and perfect it. See how many times in a row you can do it without an error. Extra Credit if you can turn it into a game with a point system. NASPE #1, 2 Moving to open space, passing and receiving #3, 4 Aerobic capacity #5, 6 Cooperation, accepting challenges Your State (Write in here) Place a student in the middle of the grid to coach players in the drill. Coaches must jog in place. Every minute or so, have students switch places so they are not always passing to and receiving from the same player. Remember the Rule. 80% get it, 20% don t. Start right away to get students moving, and then move to help those in need. NOTES 18
