This drill is mainly to improve shooting under pressure. The nature of the drill will however also mean that the players are tired while shooting, thus increasing the need for concentration. It'll teach the player to shoot from his legs, to follow his shot, and to shoot under pressure.


Pair the players, perferably according to position. Each pair gets a ball.

Player 1 shoots the ball, he then follows his shot, and rebounds the ball, not allowing the ball to touch the ground. He then passes the ball to his partner (player2). He then rushes out to apply defensive pressure on player 2.

Player 2 must shoot the ball, he may not drive for a layup.

He may employ any skill to get his shot off.

Note: he need not wait for player 1 to reach him

*After the his shot player 2 repeats the drill. i.e. he follows his shot, rebounds the ball, passes out to player 1 and then applies defensive pressure.

The players may move freely around the half court, and do not need to concentrate on one specific spot.

The drill continues until a cumulative amount of baskets are scored. The amount can be decided by the coach.

Number of Players:



Try to make sure that you match up you're players according to position.

Also be sure to make sure that they take shots that are valid game shots.

As we all know the more tired you get, the less concentration goes into execution, resulting in loss of form.

Make sure to emphasize the importance of consistent form.

An often ignored part of this drill is the need for the player applying defensive pressure to be balanced, so that player on offensive does not easily drive by him.


A third player can be introduced, to make the raotation easier.

However this will only mean that the players are less tired when shooting.
