Benefits of 3-on-3 Training for Basketball Player Development There are a number of reasons for using 3-on-3 situations to develop players. It allows for more touches than in 5-on-5 play. Working in a 3-on-3 environment forces defenders to focus and communicate which carries over into game situations. It is easier for coaches to break down offensive concepts and how to execute them in 3-on-3. It is also very valuable for coaches that do not have a large number of players. 3-on-3 Set Up Coach Procopio opens his 3-on-3 training by reviewing the variety of rules you can apply to help players learn certain skills. In some 3-on-3 situations, there will be rules for when player can or cannot dribble. Sometimes, they may be able to only use a certain number of dribbles. In other variations, screens may or may not be permitted. Coach’s 3-on-3 drills are great for learning concepts such as pin downs, back screens, and the pick & roll. With fewer players on the floor, players develop a knack for spacing and positioning. Players develop skills such as screen timing and where on the floor to set screens. Other offensive skills learned include cutting, passing, and reads when coming off a screen. Procopio’s 3-on-3 drills are not limited to offense. Players will learn how to talk on defense and communicate with their teammates in 3-on-3 situations. They will also improve on fighting through screens, switching, and help defense. The Pistols Set One of the more popular sets used in the NBA is Pistols. Procopio shows you how you can teach it using 3-on-3. The drill illustrates just how difficult it is to defend a pin down screen with a player coming off of it and immediately going to a dribble hand off.
