Is there a way to create more pressure situations where players are getting multiple repetitions per practice? When it comes to practicing any kind of shooting, you can create pressure several ways – by keeping score, by adding a timed element, or by using a combination of scoring and time. A great way to do this is with the :30 Free Throw Drill.
2 to 3 players at each basket
Set :30 on the clock.
Adjust the Dr. Dish speed to 2 or 3
Shooter will take “catch-and-shoot” FTAs
Keep score of FTMs/FTAs in the :30 time period
We’ll usually have a session prior to each water break (i.e., 2-3 times per practice). And for each session, we set the goal of 80% or better as a group. Individuals feel the pressure to perform in order for the group to achieve its goal.
