Split Post Chair Pivot

This is a very versatile drill that allows you to work on positioning, footwork and shot making. Particular attention should be paid to body positioning and pivots. The body should be low and strong through the entire move. Pivots should be made in a direct line to the front of the rim.


Instructions

  1. Place chairs in low post position on the right side and on the left elbow with a ball on each chair.
  

  1. Player cuts to right chair, making low post shot
  

  1. Player cuts to the chair on the left side             
  

  1. Player makes a high post move (pivot jumper, pivot lay-up, pivot jump hook, etc.) on the left side.
  

Switch chair position to the other side when appropriate.
