Crossfit/ sport specific

OK i am trying to come up with about an hour and half long class for my sone (middle school) and his friends. What i want to do is combine crossfit and basketball practice. Does anybody have any ideas on some drills to incorporate both?

Examples may be defensive slides with burpees on the whistle or something. Now i'm not trying to get nothing but drills incorporating both at the same time but if I did some that would be good.

From the crossfit side I plan on focusing on air squats, sit ups, push ups and other body weight movements. I probably will stay away from bars and lifting at this time.

Anybody ever done anything like this or have any ideas?

Thanks,

Double unders are great for jumping / rebounding skill.

Re: Crossfit/ sport specific

I've been thinking about these things as well. I coach varsity basketball in an urban school. My kids need to get stronger and more athletic overall (and just better at basketball). You can get a lot done with a box, a jump rope, and a medicine ball.

Basketball is all explosion, so focus on those types of movements. There's a great DVD called POWER that has a ton of power/explosion movement for upper and lower body.

Basketball is explosive as it relates to the lower body, but not the upper body per se. For upper body it would be more strength and strength endurance if we are just talking about strength training.
