Rapid Shooting Basketball Drill

With three basketballs flying around the perimeter, players’ focus must be sharp to secure the pass and take an in-rhythm shot.

WHY USE THIS BASKETBALL SHOOTING DRILL
Players don’t simply stand and shoot in a game situation. The best shots typically are created after a couple of passes to move the defense.

SET UP
Stand in the corner with a ball. Have a passing line to your left on the wing. To the left of that line, establish a shooting line on the opposite wing. Each position starts with a ball. Place four minutes on the clock.

HOW TO PLAY
The player at the front of the shooting line takes a shot and follows it [1]. The player at the front of the passing line passes to the next player in the shooting line and follows the pass. You pass to the next player in the passing line. The original shooter secures the rebound and passes to you in the corner [2]. After passing to you, the original shooter relocates to the back of the passing line. The shooting line shoots and follows the shot. The passing line passes to the next person in the shooting line. You pass to the next person in the passing line and the cycle continues [3].
