I'm always looking for different ways to incorporate shooting into my practices. I typically try to use drills that are as game-like as possible. But, there are occasions when I am looking to work on getting more shots up so our players can work on technique, confidence, shooting under pressure, or just getting some reps.
The 20 SHOOTING DRILL will get your players a lot of shots with some pressure added.
- Put three players at each basket with one basketball.
- Players are competing against the other players at their basket.
- First player to 20 points, wins.
- Each player keeps their own score, and calls out their score after each make.
- Shot made inside the three point line = 1 point
- Shot made beyond the three point line = 2 points.
- All shots must be 15 feet and beyond.
- Player shoots until they miss and when they miss a new shooter comes in. Shooter cannot shoot from the same spot two shots in a row.
You can add other variations to this drill like:
- Have players shoot from specific spots on the floor.
- Put a time limit on the drill and when time expires, the player with the most points, wins.
- Add a second ball to increase the number of shots
- Give a bonus point for making five shots in a row
