Wing-To-Wing Shooting

Catching and shooting in rhythm requires proper footwork, hand position and flow into the shot – work on all three skills in this drill

WHY USE THIS BASKETBALL SHOOTING DRILL
You are in a better position to score when players are moving on offense. A catch and-shoot opportunity has a better chance for success rather than 1-on-1 action.

SET UP
Form two lines. One line is on the left side of the floor at the free-throw-line-extended area while the other line is on the right side. The first player in the left line has a ball. The second player in the right line has a ball.

HOW TO PLAY
The first player in line on the right side cuts to the middle. The first player in the left line passes to the cutter. The pass receiver catches and shoots, then follows the shot. The next player in the right line cuts to the middle and receives a pass from the next player in the left line. On the rebound, the initial shooter passes to the opposite line from which he or she started, then follows the pass to that line. The player at the free-throw line shoots. The player in front on the right side catches the pass then fires a pass to the cutter coming from the left.
