Basketball drills for large groups differ from those for small groups. For large groups, coaches should select drills that complement the number of players, balls and baskets available and that don't require participation from the entire group simultaneously. One way basketball players can improve is through designated offensive, defensive, agility and fitness drills.
Full Court Drills. Another simple way to keep all the players busy is to use a variety of full court drills. We use the side courts so we can get two groups going full court at the same time. In the diagram you can see the set up for ONE side court. You would have the same thing set up on the other side court.
The drill is set up by splitting your group into two teams and lining each half up along opposite sidelines. For example, let’s say there are 12 players total and 6 players on each team. You will give the each individual player on each team a number from 1 – 6. The drill requires one basketball and it always starts with the coach. How it Works:
Either a drill is only for a small group of players at a time, or it is for a large group but doesn’t offer much basketball skill development. So, in the end, you decide to stay away from team basketball drills altogether.

Four-minute stations work great for a large group of young players. Simply set up a station at each basket or in different areas of the gym with a coach or parent at each one.
