This is a fast paced [tag]basketball drill[/tag] I like to use often since it gives the players a chance to get in a lot of shooting (particularly quick release shots) as well as work on rebounding with a quick box and go. These [tag]team basketball drills[/tag] work as well for conditioning also.

I call it Partner Shooting.

Players pair up.

One player is the shooter and one the rebounder.
The shooter’s job is to move to a place they want to work on shooting from, get square, receive a pass from the rebounder and shoot quickly. They then move to another spot to shoot from and so on and so on.

The rebounder’s job is to pass the [tag]basketball[/tag] to the shooter when they get square and have hands extended ready to receive the pass. They then do a quick closeout movement toward the shooter (not trying to block the shot just giving them an extended arm to shoot over and a sense of urgency to get off a quick shot). As the shot goes up they do a quick box out and go to get the rebound (the shot may be so quick that they don’t get a full body contact box out but at least a quick turn to box position and go to the rebound). They then pass to the shooter at their next chosen spot and so on and so on.

I do this timed for 30 seconds to one minute and then have the pairs switch jobs. We may do 3 or 4 rounds before going on to another drill. If done correctly and diligently they should be quite tired in a short time so it is a good [tag]conditioning drill[/tag] too.
