This drill goes way back to my days at the city pool in Ellwood City Pa. We used to play a game off the low board called jump-dive.
Someone would stand at the side of the pool and as you made your spring they would yell either jump or dive. You then tried to do as was yelled. I have applied this drill to our shooting practice.
A coach or other player positions themselves under the basket and pass a ball out to another player. The shooter steps in to receive the pass in order to set for a jump shot. But as the head and shoulders go up the passer yells either shot or drive. The player with the ball has to carry out orders. The kids love it and the ability of our kids to use the head and shoulder fake has greatly increased.
Wwe have used this drill with both coaches and players. But the kids have no problem running this,drill at all.
as many as you have
Make sure that the player catching the ball is thinking nothing but shot, he must be focused on the basket, his head must be locked on.
Many, all kinds of games can be adapted from this drill.
