These are some of my favorite [tag]basketball shooting drills and tips[/tag]. They are quick, build competitiveness and effective. Give these a try at your [tag]basketball practice[/tag].
This is a pass and shoot basketball drill I like to use.
Pass & Shoot Drill
Chair at top of key to simulate defender
One player rebounds and one player shoots, making sure to step into the ball and use proper technique.
– Same Drill but start from the 3 point line, two jab steps and
then jump shot; ball fake, jab step and then jump shot
– Same Drill, ball fake up, dribble around chair and shoot
– Same Drill, ball fake right, dribble left around chair and shoot
– Same Drill, ball fake left, dribble right around chair and shoot
Timed Shooting Drill
What works well for me is the “Timed speed dribble and shooting drill”. I time my players while dribbling right handed and left handed through suicides. I challenge them to beat their times each day for 3 straight days. The players that do receive some Gatorade or coaches award that we may designate such as most improved practice player for the week, which gets them a free lunch at the local subway shop. Builds competitiveness!
