4 Spot Fastbreak Shooting Drill

Home > Player > Training Drills > 4 Spot Fastbreak Shooting Drill

Drill Purpose:

This drill is great to work on shooting off the fast break. You can do it by yourself or with a partner. We also show you how to work ball handling into this drill, so you can manage your time better.


  1. Start at half court with a ball.

  2. Spin the ball towards the 3-point line area. Spin the ball high enough to get there in one bounce.

  3. Run under the ball and step-into a jump shot.

  4. Get your own rebound. If you miss, score a lay up.

  5. When dribbling the ball back to half-court, perform a dribble move at the 3-point line. That way, you can work on ball-handling at the same time.
  1. Once, you get back to half court, do the same thing again.

  2. If working with a partner, you can have the partner position himself a little above the 3-point line and make passes to you as you start running from half-court.

  3. Pick 4 spots on the floor and take a few shots from each spot.

I am coaching middle school basketball with kids who have a limited skill set.

Our biggest issue is creating/taking/making shots against the many zone defenses we see.

Are there a few easy drills we can work on so that we aren't stagnant when we are up against these zones?

As a player I love these drills and just wanted to thank you for doing this. It has helped me greatly and I''''m sure it helped others too.

This drill teaches the players to be able to spot up for a 3 off the break.

You can always add something to this to suit your needs. I used one simple one and just added different things to promote good ball handling and passing skills along with the shooting. JMO
