This is a shooting drill you can use when your space is restricted or for a game-day shootaround. It will work getting players to pass the ball and move for shots.


Ideally, when you're working your full team, you will have four lines. One line on each wing and two lines on the baseline where the lane meets the baseline.

Part 1: The Drill starts with a simple flash across the lane to the low block. The perimeter players enter the ball for the post player to work any of the post moves you want. The Post Player always gets the rebound and returns the ball to the perimeter lines. Each part lasts for about 2 minutes and you should average 20 shots per minutes.

Part 2: After the perimeter players enters the ball to the post, he slides either towards the baseline or towards the top of the key to get a return pass from the post for a shot. Three-point shooters should catch the ball behind the lane and non-three shooters should catch the ball at their range.

Part 3: Now the post player flashes across the lane from the block to the elbow. He catches and executes whatever shot you want.

Part 4: Again, after entering the pass, the perimeter player slides into position for a relocation pass and shot.

Part 5: Have the perimeter player drive into the elbow. The post players adjust by stepping out to the short corner for the catch and shot.

Part 6: Have the perimeter player drive towards the block. The post now makes an I-cut up the line for the catch and shot.

Number of Players:

At least 6 with posts and perimeter players


Focus on post players taking their time when they catch the ball and making good moves, not lazy moves.

Focus on all passes being good sharp passes, preferably bounce passes going in and out to make them used to throwing them.

Make sure the perimeter players are working to catch relocation passes with their feet and hands ready to shoot.

Each player switches lines each time.


Add in a cross-court relocation out of the double. This drill requires both feeders to pass at the same time and then slide up to the top of the key. Useful when you're playing against a team that doubles down from the top of the key.

If you're a pure motion team with every player possibly posting, then also switch lines between the perimeter spots and posts. This can also work for a few players who swing from inside to outside.
