This drill is designed to build concentration, consistency and confidence in young players while teaching them the feel of the most common shooting spots.

A shooter is required to make consecutive shots from different spots to complete this drill.


Mark 5 short spots, 2 side shots, two wing shots and a free throw. Also mark 5 long shots about 3 feet longer than the short shots.

The shooter starts at a side spot and shoots until making 3 shots in a row. Once the 3 shots have been made, he shoots until he misses. After that miss the shooter moves to the next spot. The second player, the rebounder always returns a good pass to the shooter.

When the shooter finishes the round of the short shots, he moves out to the long shots. At the long shot spots, only two shots in a row are required. Still, after the second consecutive shot has been made, the shooter shoots until he misses.

Distances and perfomance criteria can be changed to make this drill more challenging for more advanced players.

Number of Players:

2 or a player and a coach


*We keep several stats and even family records on this drill. Best pct., most consecutive shots etc.

This drill offers the incentive of being a short drill if a player shoots well. Also, it is a good confidence builder when a player makes a long string of shots after the mandatory 2 or 3 shots.

Players also learn to shoot with a little bit of pressure. When they have made 2 shots and are going for the third and they have missed the third shot three times, a young player starts feeling it.

It gives a coach the opportunity to stress form, arch and rotation as well.


Players can compete for least time to complete the drill if you limit the shooting in one spot to just the required shots.
