Basketball Shooting Drill Video - Reverse Shots
This is 1 of the 12 shooting drills that we gave to anybody who purchased our Breakthrough Basketball Shooting Guide as an unadvertised bonus.
Don Kelbick was kind enough to supply us with these videos.
If done correctly, this drill develops proper footwork for your shooting technique on the move.
- Place two chairs on each side of the court. One chair should be just outside the free throw lane. One chair should be on the wing.
The chair near the free throw lane has a ball sitting on it.
In this video, both chairs are near the 3-point arc. You can adjust the distance based on age and skill level.
- The player cuts to the chair on the wing, plants and comes back to the chair in the middle. Once, the shooter gets to the chair, he grabs
the ball and shoots. The player should take a big step with his inside pivot leg while rounding the chair.
- A rebounder fetches the ball and throws it back to somebody by the chair who places the ball back on the chair.
- The shooter continues this pattern back and forth between the chairs for a set number of shots.
