Basketball Shooting Drill Video - Wing to Wing

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.

This is a great drill to work on shooting from the wing and the corner. You can practice flare cuts and cutting off of down screens.

  1. You need 1 passer, 1 shooter, and 1 rebounder.

    Passer stands at the top of the key or the opposite wing.

    Shooter starts at either the wing or the corner.

    Rebounder is standing near the basket.

    Pass and rebounder both start with a ball.

  2. When the shooter cuts toward either chair, the passer throws the ball to the shooter.

    As the player shoots, the rebounder throws the next ball to the passer and rebounds the current shot.

  3. The shooter cuts back and forth between the chairs.
On the cut from the corner to the wing, the shooter could pretend that a down screen has been set or that he's making a basic cut to the wing.

On the cut from the wing to the corner, the shooter could pretend that he is executing a flare cut.

Youth coaches can move the chairs closer to the hoop.

You only get two steps off the dribble or off the pass going to the hole(basket)

Max -

You could do what we called a FLIP DRILL... this can help you with the footwork part... You need a partner to pass you the ball to get the pass/catch
part of it though.

Flip the ball out in front of you, catch and pivot and go into you shot.

Want to be able to do this drill or any of these similar drills as often as possible, but I don't have 2 other people to help me out. Is there any other way I could do something similar to this but all by myself.

Kareem, that is a great drill, but I haven't used it lately. Thanks for the reminder!

Have you ever tried to do this drill called the wind shield. Its the same but you are going from baseline to baseline, not really watching your shot, but watching your footwork. This will help them get better on a number of things, like balance, conditioning, catch and shoot, and footwork.

An excellent drill for quick hitters.

The shooter should make a two-foot stop or a jump stop (for a possible quick penetration move) flexed knees, immediately squared up, exactly where the pass is received, don't go deeper to the corner. Using the flare or down screen with a one-piece shot I believe is a much better option. Understandably, what is on the video is not on game speed (where it is greatly possible that the defender,m2m, would be a step or two behind, possibly committing a foul while the shot attempt is being made). If it were, then the shot execution would be a well done thing, with no extra foot motion through proper shot spacing off a screen.

On the other hand, the passer is expected to dribble (fake moves, etc.) or pivot his way to make a perfect pass (a crisp bounce or shot pocket level pass) where the shooter will be able to receive or grip the ball well for the shot. The kids in our advanced level regularly do this two-ball shooting drill (below the 3-point line, no chairs only orange cones), but when receiving a pass I emphasize that their feet should hit the floor at the same time, flexed knees, ball at shot pocket level and feet squared-up. Results: eventually more conversions than missed ones.

Thanks a lot for this opportunity

Hi I'm a basketball player and I used to take two steps before taking my shot and they called a traveling violation. So what I do now is take my steps before I catch the ball, that way I'll be ready to shoot. Very nice drill though.
