Sports are a fundamental part of the lives of fans and players, and everyone is anxious to have it back in their lives again, whether it’s to play or to watch. While you’re waiting for that to happen, here are some helpful videos to keep you ready for your return to the basketball court.

In part two of this series, Hoop Group’s Chaese Vaudrin shows us three rip-through drills to practice that use just a hoop, a ball, and a chair.

The Bee’s Knees to a Layup

Your knees are the target in this first drill. Use the chair to position the ball, grab it, and sweep below your knees left or right. Lead with your shoulder to slide past your opponent, and dribble to your layup position. Practice this move alternating left and right using the height of the chair to gauge your knee height for your sweep.


Sweeping to a Jump Stop

Using the same technique, place the ball on the chair, grab it, sweep low, and dribble to a two-foot jump stop, and shoot. Just like the layup drill, practice this move alternating left and right using the height of the chair to gauge your knee height for your sweep.


Rip Through to a Pull Up

The third variation of this drill uses the same movements: begin with the basketball on the chair, grab the ball and sweep low left or right below your knees. Dip your shoulder and go one dribble to a pull up and make your shot.
