A continuous shooting, rebounding and passing drill that gets players quality repetitions of jump shots at game speed.
Start with a shooting line in the corner, approximately 15 feet from the basket, and a rebounding line on the block opposite the shooting line. Divide players evenly into each line, placing the extra player in the rebounding line if there is an odd number. Start with one ball in the rebounding line. The first shooter presents a target to the rebounder with the ball, who snaps a crisp chest pass to the target then runs to the back of the shooting line. As the ball is in flight, the shooter jump stops into the pass, being sure to land evenly on both feet. He then takes a jump shot and moves to the back of the rebounding line. The next rebounder catches the ball and snaps a chest pass to the next shooter. Rotate to the five primary spots (corner, wing, top of key, wing, corner) every minute or two.
Show the jump stop prior to introducing the drill
Emphasize proper rebounding positioning and raising the arms with each shot
Encourage a quick release, but make sure the shooter 'freezes' after the shot
Emphasize the importnace of throwing good passes
Make sure players replace each other in the same direction (i.e., players always go to the left when they change lines in order to avoid collisions)
Start with one ball on the first two or three days, but work your way up to two or three for more reps
Require the players to make a number of shots before rotating and have two groups compete to see which one completes the rotation first
Make players run if the rebounders allow the ball to bounce more than once
