This is a progression of drills to build an understaning of all the roles and scoring opportunities in transition offense. By no means will this address decision making, but it is a good way to start to build good tranisition habits.

The team is divided up into two parts, each side lined up under a basket. the first person in line runs up the lane and back pedals for a caught inbound pass. The dribbler immediately gets wide and pushes all the way to the defender, reading the defense. This may result in a 3, an elbow shot, or an attack to the rim.
After 2 defends, he either rebounds or gets an inbounds and pushes wide against the next defender on the other end.
Players throw the ball of the backboard and make an outlet pass to a coach or trainer. They immediately sprint the floor and run "rim to rim". Trainers move the ball up the floor. The rim runner may get a random pass as he approaches the lane, or duck in to the post for an entry pass. After the playing defense, 2 makes an outlet pass and rim runs back the same way.
These are also rim runs, however here we are simulating the point guard being able to push the ball up the middle of the floor early. These can also take place randomly with Rim Runs to Paint Catches.
This progression simulates what players should do when they are wide runners, or weakside rail runners. This means in transition they are running wide but the ball is on the opposite side of the floor. In a game if there is no one for the point guard to push the ball ahead to, we want this opposite side wide runner to fill the strong side corner, "corner fills". If there is a teammate pushing to the ballside corner, we want this wide runner to "bounce off the baseline". The next person in line makes the inbounds pass to trainers or coaches. 2 is still defending and will corner fill or baseline bounce on the other end.
Similar to Point Guard Push, this time the ball handler immediately pass up the rail to a trainer and trails. The ball going to the corner flattens the defense and creates space for the passer after a trail and catch.
