Purpose: A shooting drill to teach moving quickly, getting into the shot motion quickly, and squaring up to the basket. Players will also work on making good passes and hustling.
Drill: 3 players and 2 basketballs per basket. A rebounder is under the basket with a ball. A shooter starts on the elbow. A passer is on the opposite wing of the shooter with a basketball.
On ‘Go’, the shooter sprints quickly across the lane to the opposite elbow. He will receive the pass from ‘P’ (passer), square up to the basket and take the shot.
As O1 is shooting, ‘R’ (rebounder) will pass the second ball to the passer and then quickly secure the rebound.
After shooting, O1 will quickly run back to the other elbow (might even be more of a fade cut). The passer will zip a pass to the shooter, who will square up and shoot.
This process continues for a length of 55 seconds. Use 5 seconds to rotate positions and begin again with the new shooter. Continue until all players have been in each position.
- All players should move and react quickly. The shooter should move quick and the rebounder may really need to hustle down the rebounds.
- Goal, especially for older ages, should be to shoot 15+ times in :55.
- Teach players and help them understand the idea of being ready to shoot before they even receive the pass.
