This week's Coaches Share question: What is your philosophy as to how many minutes of shooting you do in one of your practices? Do you have a set amount of time for each practice? Do you try to get your players a certain number of shots? Does it vary from day to day?
"I make sure to dedicate at least 20 minutes of formal shooting drills for practices. I always have one drill that is specific by position."
"We play a style of basketball that gives us a lot of three point opportunities so we shoot plenty of 3's each day in practice. I don't set a certain number of minutes each practice that is dedicated to shooting. I would estimate that each of our players shoot at least one hundred 3's a day though."
"Our first fifteen minutes of practice are dedicated to shooting during and loosening up. Some days we do more at the end of practice as well."
