2 balls 'Shooter' attempts to make foul shot. If he misses he tries to get rebound before next player sinks his foul shot. 'Rebounder' may try to bump 'Foul shooter's' ball so as to interfere with it going in, in order to bide time so that
rebounder can get ball in first.
Players line up, one behind the other behind the foul line; first two players each have a ball.
Player #1 attempts foul shot. If shot is made, he gets ball and passes it to Player #3 and then joins the end of the line; Player #2 then attempts foul shot...etc... If shooter misses foul shot, player with ball behind them, then attempts his foul shot before the player who missed foul shot can get his rebound and sink a shot.
If rebounder gets shot in before next man gets foul shot in, he remains in the game...If foul shooter beats rebounder with a successful basket, then rebounder is now out of the game. Play continues until you have a winner.
Only rebounder who misses shot leaves the game.
2 minimum but 5 or more works best
This drill stresses importance of 'feeling' your shot.
Players must be able to align themselves up for the shot accurately and quickly.
This drill also stresses reaction time and rebounding skills.
This drill should be done continuously and as quickly as possible, without stopping.
When players are out of the game, have them go to a 'free' net and practice foul shots.
