2 OR 8 FREE THROW SHOOTING DRILL
2 or 8 is a free throw shooting drill that includes both pressure shooting and conditioning. This drill is best utilized with two players shooting at one basket.
Player A goes to the free throw line while Player B rebounds for them. Player A will shoot free throws until they either make 8 in a row or miss 2 in a row. If Player A misses 2 in a row before they make 8 in a row they run a predetermined number of sprints. If Player A makes 8 in a row before they miss 2 in a row they do not have to run.
Player A could make 5 in a row, then miss one. If they miss the next shot, they run (that would be 2 misses in a row). If they make that next shot their count is now at 1 in a row and they continue.
Player B starts to shoot once Player A is either finished with their 8 makes in a row or running their sprints for missing 2 in a row.
