Basketball drills for shooting

Make sure all players have a ball
  • The player starts at the post next to the bucket.
  • Player dribbles to the basket
  • Variations:
    • The player stops on two feet = jumpshot
    • The player starts the two-count rhythm = lay-up
      • From the right side: first right foot, drop with left foot.
      • From the left side: first with left foot, then with right foot.
  • The player picks up his own rebound and dribbles around the pole.
  • The player zigzags through the posts.
  • The player then rejoins the line near the basket.
When there is a large group, this exercise can be done on both sides of the field.
  • Who is the first group to reach 20 scores, wins.
Each player has nrs from 1-5
  • Run a break (lines) for the other side.
  • Nr goes for shot.
  • If you miss, the rest of the players have to rebound and score.
  • Quickly take over and go to the other side where nr 2 takes a shot.
  • If wrong rebound and finish.
Etc etc for 3,4 and 5. May be with a pass in between.
1 shooter and 1 or 2 rebounders.
