You need 3 players for this drill. 1 player at half-court, and 2 players (1 under each basket). Each of the players under each basket should have a ball. When each player completes the drill rotate around.


On your whistle, the half-court player will sprint to one of the baskets short corners, (baseline). He will then receive a pass from the player under that basket with the ball. He is going to receive the pass and take a jumpshot. While the player under the basket will rebound the shot, the shooting player will sprint to the other basket to take a jumpshot.

He will then sprint to the 1st basket to take a jumpshot from the 45 degree angle to the baseline position, and then the same at the other end. And then return sprinting to the 1st basket to take a jumpshot from the point position and so on until he has taken 10 shots, 5 at each basket from all five different positions.

Number of Players:



Point out the drill carefully to all players shooting or rebounding by showing them all the positions they are going to take shots from to avoid any mistakes and confusions.

Time for each player the time he takes to put up all 10 shots as a measure for his/her speed and also count the number of shots he/she makes in as a measure for his shooting percentage. This is a very useful drill if you have a small number of players that showed up for practice. This drill makes the player sprint when he is quite tired which helps to improve the player physical condition. After the player completes the drill make him take a couple of free throws from the foul line it could be quite useful.

Make the short players take their jumpers from the 3 point range and the tall ones from the medium range to show competition between players. Compare the number of shots made by each player and the time taken for each player to complete all 10 shots to see the skills of your players among each other and if each player is improving or not.


Instead of making the player shoot on both baskets make shoot on 1 only and after making each shot he should run to the half court line or to the opposite baseline to make the following shot from the next position. If each player is going to shoot only on 1 basket, why not make him shoot from 2 times from each position or make complete the drill 2 times in a row. It's always up to the coach.


Quick shooting after a sprint.
