Start with a handoff on the wing, which leads into a drag screen and allows your offense to attack the middle of the lane as the defense can’t cover it all. MORE
‘4-Shot Drill’ Hits All Areas
Convert an in-close curl, 3-pointer, mid-range jumper and attacking layup in this fast-paced drill to work on shooting from several areas of the floor.
WHY USE IT
Don’t limit your shooters to focusing just on 3-pointers or staying too close to the hoop, this drill gets them looks from all over the floor while also pushing them to hustle and score on the move just like in a game.
Partner up. The shooter starts under the rim with the partner near the top of the key with a ball. Use as many hoops as you have in the gym to maximize your time and get everyone shots.
HOW TO PLAY
The shooter curls from the baseline into the lane and receives a pass. The shooter takes the in-close shot, then sprints to the mid-court line before coming back toward the 3-point line . The partner gathers the ball and passes to the shooter as he or she steps into a 3-point shot. After taking the shot, the shooter now sprints to the sideline, then cuts inside the arc . The partner makes the pass for a mid-range jumper. The shooter takes the shot, sprints back to mid-court, then hustles toward the hoop to receive a pass on the move for an attacking layup .
You can add a third person to the drill to serve as the rebounder if that makes it easier. The rebounder then passes to the partner at the top, who passes to the shooter at each of the four areas. Or, the partner simply must hustle after all rebounds.
