Looking for“ [tag]shooting drills for basketball[/tag]?“ You’ve come to the right place!“ Try out this idea below and let me know how it goes for you.
Easy, simple and very effective drill. Two lines, out of bounds at low
post. (Let’s call the left line “A” and the right line “B”. Two
basketballs, one with the first player in line B and one with the second
player in line A. To start, the first player in line A sprints along the
paint and around the elbow, across the free throw line to the opposite
elbow. He receives a pass from the first player in line B and takes a
jumper. Immediately after making his pass, that first player in the B line
sprints up his side of the paint, out around the shooter he just passed to,
to his opposite elbow. He receives a pass from the second player in line A
and takes a jumper. That player then sprints around the shooter he just
passed to, and takes a pass from the next player in line B. And the drill
continues in that fashion.
A couple of additional logistical points for the drill. The shooter gets
his own rebound and delivers it to the opposite line that he received the
pass from. He then goes to the back of the line that he received the pass
from. So think about it this way, a shooter at the right elbow, gets his
rebound and gives the ball to the next available player in the left line.
He then goes to the back of the right line.
This is a great [tag]basketball[/tag] drill for catching a pass on the fly, getting to a certain
spot, getting square to the hoop, and concentrating on being under control
at full speed. We mix up the passes, and make a competition in practice
about how many we make in two minutes.
It’s all a very impressive looking pre-game drill once the boys get it
down. (Looks almost like they’re well coached)!!
