Shooting Basics

Bombs Away Drill Diagram

Set-up. Pair up players and spread out about ten feet from each other as shown in the diagram. Each pair has one basketball.

The Activity - Players work on thier shooting technique by shooting at an imaginary basket above thier partner. Once the partner catches the basketball, he/she  does the same , and takes a practice shot back to thier partner. Repeat for 10 to 50 times.

Coaching Point- Great opportunity for coaches to walk up and down the lines giving points on how to shoot better. Another variation if teaching the beef method, would be to have the players take 10 shots focusing on balance, then ten shots focusing on keepeing elbow in, etc.
