Two Ball Shooting Drill
This drill allows the shooter to get a high number of shots in a short amount of time from different spots.
- You need 3 players: a rebounder (Player 3), passer (Player 2), and shooter (Player 1).
- Player 2 and the Player 3 start out with the basketballs.
- Player 1 makes a cut to another spot on the floor and Player 2 throws a pass leading Player 1 to the spot.
- Player 1 shoots the ball on the catch.
- After Player 2 passed the ball to Player 1, Player 3 passes the ball to Player 2.
- Player 3 rebounds the shot.
- Player 1 cuts to back to a new spot and Player 2 passes him the ball.
- Player 1 shoots the ball.
- Player 3 passes the ball to Player 2 and goes to rebound the shot.
- This pattern continues for a set amount of time or until a certain number of shots have been taken or made.
- Keep your hips low, so you can catch the ball and go straight up into your shot.
- Move at GAME SPEED. If you do NOT shoot at full speed, you'll never shoot the ball well during the game, because your brain/body is not accustomed the speed.
- Good Passes. Every pass should hit the shooter in the hands and lead them into their shot.
- Go to different spots on the floor.
- Elbow to Elbow
- Wing to Wing
- Change positions of the passer.
- Offensive Patterns. You can perform this drill with certain patterns and cuts. For example, from the wing, you could fade to the corner. From the corner, do v-cut and pop up to the wing for a shot.
