6 hoop shooting working on catching and shooting the ball quickly, as well as getting some endurance work, without even knowing they are benefitting.


We run a continuous shooting drill in our practices, that maximizes the number of repetitions each player gets in a short period of time. Our gym is set up with two courts running crosscourt through the main court, this gives us six baskets to use. We start with two players under each basket on the left side of the lane (as you are looking at the hoop) Each of these players has a basketball. The third player stands at the elbow on the same side as the passers underneath the hoop. On command, the passer at the front of each line passes to the shooter. After passing, the passer then sprints to the basket directly to her left, (in a clockwise direction) She then becomes the shooter at that basket. The shooter at the first basket rebounds her own shot, and falls into line under that basket which she shot at. The drill is continuous, in that you will pass the ball, become the shooter, rebound and stand in line, pass the ball, become the shooter etc. until the drill is stopped. If more than 18 people are used, merely put the extras under one of the baskets, and everyone has a little longer rest at those hoops. We run this drill daily, and in both directions. When running in the opposite direction, passers and shooters will change sides of the lane, and we go to the basket in a counter-clockwise direction to become the next shooter. We often travel around the circuit 3 times, for a total of 18 shots. We set goals, and have rewards for those who don't reach their goals. If fewer than 18 girls are used, you may only use 4 or 5 baskets. We encourage sprinting to the spot, breaking down and readying themselves to catch the pass, and make the shot. We can include a dribble before the shot, or change where we want the shot taken from.

Number of Players:

Best with 18, any number (3 per hoop used)


We change shot locations, and shooting off the dribble to change up the drill. You may want to set cones, for the shooter to go around, so they have a good angle at the basket for the shot. You may also move the passers to different locations, so they don't get hit with the ball.
