Jim sent me this [tag]basketball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] for [tag]girls basketball shooting[/tag]. This is an excellent way to improve your youth team’s [tag]shooting[/tag] skills.
I have a relay race drill I run with my 5th grade girls team.
It goes like this:
2 squads lined up at a baseline.
Begin with a [tag]rebound[/tag] off the glass.
Power dribble to the free throw line, pass to coach at half court.
Player keeps moving toward opposite basket, coach plays give and go.
Player than has to make a basket. [tag]Jump shot[/tag] or [tag]lay up[/tag].
After the made bucket player passes the ball back to coach at half court and runs backward to the opposite [tag]free throw[/tag] line and touches the floor.
Then the next player may begin.
Coaches can bounce the ball off the glass for the rebound.
Players may rotate for the give and go.
Use of the game clock is helpful.
