In this Dr. Dish Drill of the week from Coach Tony Miller, he demonstrates a great drill called Contested Closeout Shooting focused on game-like action against a defender. Checkout the full breakdown below!
It can be a challenge creating game-like shooting drills for small group workouts (e.g., 2-4 players). This contested shooting drill simulates game-like shooting with a defender quickly closing out.
Contested Closeout Shooting
The defender will start at 3-point line.
The shooter will start 5 to 6 feet behind the 3-point line.
On the Dish’s pass out to the shooter, the shooter steps in to receive the pass at the 3-point line.
At the same time, the defender touches the free throw line then sprints to contest the shot.Want more from Coach Tony Miller?
