In order to improve shoting skills, a player must train their muscles to shoot correctly when making realistic game shots. This drill requires the player to mave randomly to various key shot positions around the basket, sqare up, and take their shot.


Point out several key shot locations around the basket to the player. These should be the locations of shots that are expected in your offense. Have the player start at one of the spots and time them for 60 seconds while they move randomly around to the various spots. The coach keeps track of the number of shots made. This statistic can be used for measuring improvement or for competition.

Number of Players:



The player should be taught to take these shots in the drill as they would be taken in a game situation. For example, if the shot is to be taken moving toward the basket on a jump stop, than the player should shot that way during the drill.

The player should be coached to work on keeping their form consistant as they make each shot. There is a tendency to rush the shots in this type of drill, just as in a game situation. This usually causes the player to change their shot. Proper coaching with this drill will allow the player to learn to focus on shooting correctly and not on the situation they are in.


I usually use this for jump shots, but it can obviously be used for any type of shot that your offense is trying to develop.
