The drill should improve reaction of the players. We have a lot of fun although it is very tough.
Place one player lying face down the foul line with eyes to the three point line. One player shoots from three point line. As soon as the player shoots, the player on the floor jumps onto the feet and tries to get the ball. If he catches it before the ball hits the ground he has to make a shoot from where he catches the ball. Penalize as follows:
1. If the player don't even touch the ball before it hits the ground: 10 pushups (or anything else)
2. If the player touch the ball before it hits the ground: 5 Pushups
3. If the player catches the ball and miss the following shoot: 3 pushups
4. If the player catches the ball and make the shoot: No penalty
Minimum 2. Best 4 per basket.
