Boston Night Riders

  • Chasers/keepers:
    • Five reps (no edits, continuous film) of you passing to a moving receiver from 10 yards away.
    • Five reps (no edits, continuous film) of you passing to a moving receiver from 15 yards away.
    • 10 reps (no edits, continuous film) of you catching a pass of average velocity and shooting it through a hoop (wall with a taped square can substitute).
    • 20 reps (no edits, continuous film) of mid-range shooting on a keeper-guarded set of hoops. Chasers should be moving, either forward or side to side, and not stationary when shooting. Demonstrate ability to shoot on all three hoops, and with a wide range of shot types (floaters, bullets, shot fakes etc).
    • 10 reps (no edits, continuous film) of driving on a point defender and scoring.
    • 10 reps (no edits, continuous film) of point defending to stop a driver for 5 seconds. Have drivers and defenders start 5 yards away from each other with 5 yards to the hoop (use only one hoop, any height). No shooting, only dunking.
  • Keepers:
    • 10 reps (no edits, continuous film) of hoop defending. Have a partner stand 10-15 yards away and take shots at the hoops to demonstrate your shot-blocking/pass-intercepting ability.
  • Chasers:
    • 30 continuous seconds of off-ball man marking. Have a partner set up around the hoops, and then have them make cuts and try to get open. Demonstrate the ability to limit passes to this player. If desired, have a third player occasionally make passes to the player and demonstrate ability to intercept, knock down or, if received, contain the offender.
  • Beaters:
    • Five reps (no edits, continuous film) of you running and picking up a bludger and attempting to hit an opponent at a light jog 10-15 yards away. Ball should be thrown with pace.
    • 15 reps (no edits, continuous film) of attempting to catch a mid-range beat from 5-10 yards away.
    • Three reps (no edits, continuous film) to effectively demonstrate skill to re-acquire bludger control or win beater battles by catching thrown bludgers. Complete the course in this video: https://youtu.be/a1VPXHjZYGg.
