Kentucky full court lay-up drill

Students will proceed from the locker room to form 2 groups (1 group under each goal).  I will quickly divide them up to make sure they are close to even groups.
Directions: Each group has two balls.  On the whistle the first person in line takes off to the other end to shoot a lay-up.  When the first person reaches half court, the second one takes off.  After the lay-up the person goes to the end of the line in the group under the goal he just shot from.  The goal is to make a certain number of lay-ups in 2 minutes as a group.  I may start with 70 lay-ups as a goal and move up the next day when that goal is met, trying to improve on our speed and lay-ups making abilities each day.
