37-Point Thriller

This fast-paced drill gets up 15 jump shots and 2 free throws in just 1 minute… provided players are hustling for the duration

WHY USE IT
Game situations don’t allow players time think when shooting. This drill pushes players to catch, dribble and shoot in rhythm.

SET UP
Position a rebounder under the hoop to serve as the rebounder. This person starts with the ball. The shooter begins in the right corner. One minute is on the clock.

HOW TO PLAY
The rebounder passes to the shooter. The shooter catches and shoots the 3-pointer in rhythm, then moves to the next spot. There are five spots around the perimeter where the shooter shoots. Each shot is worth 3 points [1]. After taking the final shot of the first sequence in the left corner, the shooter stays there, catches another pass, takes one dribble to the right and shoots the jumper. Again, the shooter moves to all five perimeter spots and completes the same action.

These shots are worth 2 points [2]. The drill continues with the player executing the same movements but this time with dribble to the left and pull-up jumper. The drill ends with two free throws worth 1 point each [3].
