In Coach Tony Miller's 8th Dr. Dish Drill of the week, he provides a great demonstration of a V shooting drill. Check out the full explanation below!
You may or may not be in favor of the mid-range shot, but the fact of the matter is that, at times, the mid-range shot is the best option for certain players in certain circumstances. So while it may not be a shot you regularly emphasize, it can be a valuable shot to have in the arsenal.
In this V Shooting Drill, start with a player on the wing. The player will alternate directions – the first shot will be after a dribble towards the shot corner, the second shot will be after a dribble towards the elbow. Take 5 shots from each spot.
After the first 10 shots, the player moves to the top of the key, alternating shots from each elbow.
For the final 10 shots, the player moves to the opposite wing, alternating shots between the short corner and elbow.
Keep score (e.g. best out of 30) to make things more competitive for your players.
