‘7 Drill’ Tests Form As Fatigue Mounts

The shooter covers a lot of ground in 2 minutes while trying to make more shots than miss and get the score into the 5- to 7-point range.


Get players out of the stand-still shooting funk in the offseason by suggesting this game, which requires constant movement.


The drill requires a shooter and a rebounder. Eventually, the rebound gets an opportunity to shoot and compete against the first shooter’s score.


The initial shooter takes the first shot from an elbow. Make the shot and sprint to the opposite sideline, then move to that sideline’s elbow as the rebounder gathers the ball [1]. The rebounder passes to the shooter, who takes the shot. Make it and continue the movement by running to the opposite side. Miss it
(as shown) and the shooter rebounds the ball [2]. Grab the missed shot, shoot the layout, sprint to the opposite sideline and move to the elbow. The rebounder grabs the ball after the layup and readies to pass to the elbow [3].


A made shot is+1 and a missed shot is -1. Shoot for two minutes and the goal is to score 5 to 7 points. Players should make their own goal and realize some NBA players struggle to get to 7.
