The Gardow Drill enhances the ability to take a number of different shots off of the sweep action.
This drill utilizes the Sweep Stick training aid to help players rip the ball low (below their knees) and reduce turnovers.
Each shot should start with a pass from the Passer/Coach. The Passer/Coach is also the rebounder. After each rep, the Shooter should sprint back to the top of the key ready to catch the next pass. Step 1: One Dribble Pull-Up at ConeSweep the ball from inside-out and attack the cone. At the cone, pull-up and take a shot. Shoot to both right and to the left.
