This shooting drill teaches you concentration. If you are going for ten in a row and the player has hit seven, you can tell that they don't want to miss. The drill also emphasizes the correct shooting form. It is almost impossible to hit many shots in a row if your shooting form changes from shot to shot.
As with most good drills, this drill is really simple. The coach tells players how many consecutive baskets they need to hit.
Players shoot in pairs, one the shooter, the other the passer and rebounder. The shooter stands still and shoots until he or another shooter reaches the required number. Then the passer and shooter change positions.
Have the players compete against other pairs of shooters to increase the pressure.
Two spots: After hitting one shot the shooter steps a couple
of steps closer to the basket and shoots the next shot there. After hitting again he returns to the original spot to shoot. If he misses a shot he stays put until he scores.
Two balls: As soon as the shooter has shot the first ball, the passer passes the second ball to him. This of course puts pressure on the shooter, makes him shoot as quickly as he can.
