Description:

This drill helps players shoot from all areas of the floor. It can be done as a group, but it is also a very good way for a player to practice by himself/herself. The stations used in this drill are:

the baseline opposite your shooting hand

halfway between the baseline and a line dividing the lane in half, opposite your shooting hand

straight out from the basket

halfway between the baseline and a line dividing the lane in half, near your shooting hand

the baseline near your shooting hand

the same as station #5

the same as station #4

the same as station #3

the same as station #2

the same as station #1

Instructions:

Stand 1-2 feet away from the basket at the first station.

Take ten jump shots.

If you make eight or more shots, move to the next station. If you don't make 8 or more shots, repeat step 2 until you make at least eight shots.

Repeat steps 2 and 3 from each station.

When you reach the first station again, step back about 3 feet and repeat the drill.

When you are done shooting from behind the three-point line, begin working your way in towards the basket again.

Number of Players:

Any number, but can also be used as a solo practice

Tips:

This drill helps players shoot from places that they normally would not shoot from in a game. The variations on this drill help a player's entire offensive game aside from rebounding.

Variations:

You can also try passing the ball to the shooter from the center circle and having him/her shoot the ball as quickly as possible. This works on shooting time. Having your point guard pass the ball in will also develop his/her passing skills.

Another good variation is to pass the ball to the shooter at the station and have him/her drive in for a layup. You can use a defender if you want, but it is not required.

Skills:

Shooting jump shots
