This drill is especially designed for players who would like to improve their shooting, but don't have anyone to practice with on their backyard-baskets or on streetcourts.
It also makes a player get use to grabbing his own rebound quickly, and scoring out of that rebound.
The main idea of this drill is that you hit 25 shots, grab your own rebounds and score out of each of them.
To make sure that the player concentrates on the layins, you don't count the shot if you hit the shot but miss the layin. If you miss both the shot and the layin you take one shot off the total number of shots you've hit so far.
You measure the time that it takes you to score 25 shots with a watch or a stopwatch.
Of course there aren't many coaching tips, because this is a drill for a player to practice on his own. However you can use this drill as a punishment, or if you have enough baskets you can use it as a short shooting practice.
To create extra motivation you can (for example) let a player run a suicide (run from baseline-near free throw line and back, to midcourt and back, to far free throw line and back, to far baseline and back) for each minute this drill takes him.
you can change the number of shots you have to hit
you can shoot 3-pointers or bucket-shots instead of half-distance shots
you can count missed layins extra.
half-distance shooting, rebounding
