Last week, I sent out a request for my newsletter subscribers to send in their best [tag]free basketball shooting[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag]. Check out this one below from Doug (very creative!).
My primary break drill.
It is called 2 1/2 cycles because you go the full length of the [tag]basketball[/tag] [tag]court[/tag] 2 1/2 times. It is pretty self-explanatory.
The important part of this drill is that the parts of the drill are done in order (1-5). This ensures that everyone touches the ball within the drill. It of course can be enhanced in many different ways.
You can [tag]score[/tag] so many times within a time limit, or you can make them go until everyone hits their respective shot, or you can do it until there are no turnovers… or etc etc.
Once the kids get the drill – it is a good reminder of the wings needing to stay wide when running the lanes, the [tag]passes[/tag] needing to be in the right place to catch and [tag]shoot[/tag], the ball needs to be ripped out of the net on a make or a proper outlet to the 1 (always) on a miss, and it also makes the post sprint the floor.
You can implement some “dummy” d also….as I said, you can do a lot with this drill. But, the whole premise is that everyone has a place to be, and a certain pass has to happen at a certain point in the drill.
