This is a speed shooting and conditioning drill, which originates from 5 spots behind the 3-point arc. (Each corner, each wing and the point)
Start in the corner. Shoot a 3 pt. shot off a spin back toss, follow and rebound the ball and sprint back and touch the 3 point line where shot was just taken from and pivot toward basket, take 1 hard dribble covering as much space as possible and shot jump shot off the dribble. Follow shot and rebound. Sprint back to the original 3 pt. spot, pivot and shoot a driving lay-up on side you are facing.
3 Pt. shot counts 3 points.
Jump shot counts 2 points.
Lay-up is worth 1 point.
Do this repetition at each of the other 4 spots. Each spot has 6 possible points. 30 points are possible from those 5 spots.
After all five spots have been finished go to the free throw line and shoot 3 free throws with each free throw being worth 1 point.
Perfect score is 33.
1 or 2
Work on using proper shooting form and incorporate speed and vertical jumping.
Do the spot shooting as fast as possible using good form at all time. All shoot free throws as you would in competition.
Play against an opponent in competition and of course always try to get a perfect score. Your opponent could be a rebounder.
We will also have our players continue to do the drill till a composite score of 200 is scored without stopping. This is a great drill for any player to use in individual workouts.
3 Pt. shot, shot off dribble and hard lay-up
