This is one of my favorite competitive shooting drills that I like to use with my shooters.
I really like it because you have to stay focused for every repetition in order to make 2 in a row in order to advance. Also, due the timing and competitive aspect of it, the shooter is motivated to take every shot at game speed.
I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s better to have 50 focused repetitions at game speed than to have 500 mindless repetitions at half speed.
It also improves conditioning drill as your shooter is taking shots all over the court for 2 minutes straight.
You can use this drill as a warm up drill or a fun way to end a workout or practice.
This drill features one shooter and one rebounder/passer. Mark 5 spots on the court. The shooter will have 2 minutes to make 2 shots in a row from each of the 5 spots.
Once the shooter makes 2 in a row, he/she can rotate clockwise to the next spot.
When completes the first 5 spots, the shooter will travel in counter-clockwise rotation top repeat the process at the same 5 spots.
All told, the shooter will have to make 2 in a row from ten total positions on the court.
If he/she finishes within 2 minutes, the shooter will sprint to the top of the key and have the remaining time to make as many shots as possible before the time runs out.
