Basketball Drills: Stagger Shooting with Coach Tony Miller
by Tony Miller, on Dec 9, 2022 11:39:00 AM
Within our team’s offense, we frequently use stagger screens to get shooters open. Working in small group workouts, we don’t always have the number of players needed to simulate the 6-7 players needed to set up a stagger screen scenario. Instead, we’ll pare things down to just the shooter and a defender. We want the shooter to have a small advantage, but we still want the defender to put a little pressure on the shooter.
Checkout the full drill breakdown in the video below.
1 v 1 Stagger Shooting Drill with Coach Tony Miller
- The shooter starts in the corner, below the fist cone (which simulates the first screener), while the defender starts on the other side of the bottom cone, facing the corner of the floor.
- When the Dish passes the ball out, the shooter starts to run off the stagger screens (the two cones). The defender also moves, running around the bottom cone, chasing the shooter.
- On the catch, the shooter will attempt a 3P shot while the defender contests without blocking the shooter.
