No Room For Error In 24 Drill
Misses mean sprinting while makes equate to jogging in this competitive drill to sharpen players’ shooting skills from the corners
WHY USE THIS BASKETBALL SHOOTING DRILL
Players are taking in-rhythm shots in a competitive atmosphere to simulate a game situation.
Position yourself or an assistant coach under the basket with the shooter situated in the corner. The coach serves as the rebounder and passer.
HOW TO PLAY
A pass is made to the player in the corner. He or she catches in rhythm and elevates into the shooting motion . The shot is taken and the coach tracks down the ball whether it’s a make or a miss . On a miss, the player sprints to the opposite corner for another pass from the coach . On a make, the player has the opportunity to remain the same corner for another shot – make two in a row and jog to the opposite corner.
The shooter beats the drill when he or she makes two 3-pointers in a row four different times. The shooter loses if four total shots are missed. For a variation, have the player move from wing to wing, or slot to slot. No matter where the player is moving, communicate that hustle is required on a miss. The reward is to jog when making two in a row.
