This drill can be used anytime during practice. We use it at the end of a practice as a shooting and conditioning drill.

The drill begins with 3 players on each baseline and three players at the half court line. The players on the end lines each have a basketball. On the coach's whistle the players at half court sprint toward one baseline. When they reach the three point arc they call for the ball. The player on the endline makes a good chest or bounce pass to the player opposite her. The player receiving the ball can pull up for a three point shot or move to the basket for a layup or a fifteen foot jump shot.

The player who passes the ball sprints down court and receives a pass at the opposite three point arc. The drill continues for one minute. The object is to score a certain number of points which are predetermined by the coach. If enough points are scored then the drill can end.

Scoring is determined by the following:

3 points if basket is made from outside the 3 point arc.

2 points if made from three point line in to the broken circle area.

1 point if made from broken circle to backboard (lay-up)

Our goal is usually 60+ points in a minute.

The players will like this drill because it is competitive. they don't mind the running because they are concentrating on the pass and shot.

Note: The shooter must rebound her own shot and then get to the baseline and be ready to pass to the next shooter who will be coming down the court.


One coach must be at each end to total up the points scored at that basket.

Number of Players:

Minimum of nine
