Whether you’re running a summer basketball camp or simply building your library for the upcoming season, here are 3 shooting drills that will foster competition amongst your players.
First to 10
This first drill can be done with or without a shooting machine. If you don’t want to use your Dr. Dish, have either a rebounding line underneath or have each shooter rebound their own miss. Turn your volume up when you watch the video below to hear me quickly explain how this drill works.
Form two lines (i.e., two teams).
The goal is to score 10 first.
Each attempt is worth 2 points.
On consecutive missed shots after a make, 2 points are subtracted.
Teams are not penalized multiple -2 points for multiple consecutive missed shots.
Similar to the First to 10 drill above is 33 Shooting. Run this drill with one group and see how fast they can reach 33 or split up larger groups into two groups and see who can get 33 points the fastest.
Select a different perimeter location for each round.
The goal is to score 33 points as quickly as possible.
Each made attempt is worth 3 points.
On consecutive missed shots after a make, 3 points are subtracted.
Teams are not penalized multiple -3 points for multiple consecutive missed shots.
55 Team Shooting
This final team shooting drill is great for teaching players to make the “extra pass” to open teammates. Move the 5 perimeter locations around to where your team gets most of its shots.
Player 1 receives a pass from the Dish and passes to Player 3 for the shot.
Player 2 then becomes the next passer and Player 1 the next shooter.
