There are players who make only 1 or 2 passes when making a jump shot. To practice to really make 3 passes, you can do this exercise:
  • Put 4 benches in a row as shown in the drawing.
  • Have them take turns on the 1st bench.
  • Then make 3 passes across the benches.
  • Take a jump shot.
drawing Forcing jump shot 3 passes
The team runs in a run around the half court.
  • Player 1 has the ball and holds the ball behind his head.
  • Player 2 tries to grab the ball and then does the same to player 3.
  • And so on.
As soon as the one behind has the ball she/he takes a sprint forward so that she/he becomes player 1 and then it starts again.

  • Player 1 has the ball and runs backwards and throws the ball with a bounce to player 2.
  • The latter turns around and throws the ball to player 3.
  • And so on.
As soon as the back has the ball he takes a sprint forward so that he becomes player 1 and then it starts again.
