Reaction time in basketball can mean the difference between an easy layup or a turnover. The Fordson drill teaches the player to respond to voice. Check out the 1st drill in the video below to see how it goes. Some key points:

  • Do not let the ball hit the floor
  • Make sure the player doing the layup shoots with the correct hand. So if the player underneath the ring calls out left, they need to shoot with their left hand and vice versa
  • Do this drill as fast as you can as it can increase fitness levels
