Spot shooting/following shot drill that you can work in ball handling and conditioning.


This basketball drill can be used as a fun way to change up a practice routine and still get in plenty of shooting, ball handling and conditioning. Place 9 cones at various spots around the basket (you determine the placement based on your team's needs.)

Starting from the left side of the basket, designate the cones as holes 1-9. Each hole is a 'par 2'. Have players line up behind the cone representing hole 1. The first player takes his shot and follows it. If he makes it, he is now 1 under par.

If he misses, his second shot must be taken from the spot of his rebound. If he makes his second shot, he is now even par.

If he misses, his third shot is taken from the spot of his rebound. Players keep shooting until they make a shot at that hole.

As soon as the player in front is done at the hole, the next player steps up and shoots. After each player has gone through the front nine, they go in reverse order around the basket for the back nine.

Number of Players:

Full Team


To work in conditioning and ball handling skills, require the players to do designated ball handling drills while waiting in line at even numbered holes and conditioning drills at odd numbered holes.

Designate shorter 'holes' near the paint as water hazards that must be negotiated by using the glass on the first shot. If the glass isn't used, charge a penalty stroke and make the player start over.

Reward the top shooters with something (getting out of a conditioning drill at the end of practice.)
