One of my readers, Tye, actually suggested this idea for [tag]basketball shooting training[/tag]. I’ve included these [tag]basketball[/tag] [tag]drills[/tag] here for you below.
A couple of ideas that have helped us improve.
We spend the first 20 min of practice with [tag]conditioning[/tag] type drills; they may be different drills everyday but we always include the following two:
The first 10 min we do 2 on 2 [tag]shooting[/tag].
P1 passes to P2 and closes out on P2. P2 shoots and then follows their shot. On a miss they are allowed to put it back if it doesn’t hit the floor. After they [tag]rebound[/tag] the make or miss they then pass to P1 who has spotted up for the shot.
The other [tag]drill[/tag] we run is called “X Drill”. Two lines are formed outside the 3pt line free throw line extended. Two balls in each line. The first person in line 1 curls off the opposite elbow and receives the pass from the other line and continues to the basket for a hard layup. After the pass is made that person cuts to the other block and receives the pass for a layup. This continues until the team makes 20 layups in a row. After layups we continue to shots from the elbow, then bank shots then 3 pts.
This drill is fast paced and has helped with finishing under the basket in traffic.
