‘Double The Fun’ Requires Consistency

Players must make two consecutive shots before earning the right to move to the next spot … miss two in a row and head back to the previous spot.

WHY USE IT

You want consistency from shooters and this drill rewards players for making a couple in a row while punishes them for missing consecutive shots. 

SET UP

Consider this a 2-2-2 drill in that players are trying to make two straight shots to move to the next spot. Miss two shots and move back to the previous spot. Try to complete the five-spot drill in just two minutes at most.   

HOW TO PLAY

Mark out the five areas from where you want the shooters to shoot. Use cones to give approximate spots. Depending on your age group, skill of player and types of shots on which to focus, these can be mid-range jumpers or you can set up the five cones all outside the 3-point line. The shooter starts shooting from the first spot [1]. Make two in a row from the first spot and move to the next as the partner rebounds and passes [2]. Keep trying to make two in a row at each of the five spots. If you miss two in a row from any spot, you have to retreat to the previous spot and continue the actions. [3].

3. Make two in a row and move to the next cone — this gets players into a shooting rhythm

4. Keep making your way around the five spots provided you continue making two in a row — the pressure mounts as the player gets closer to the end
5. The shooter finishes at the fifth spot with two straight makes but the drill continues if he or she misses two in a row, and has to move back to the fourth spot while trying to earn the right to shoot from the fifth again


TECHNIQUE

Give players two minutes to complete the drill. Keep track of who can complete it in the fastest time. Keep a log throughout the season and have players set a goal to be the fastest by season’s end.
