This team basketball drill can work on shooting or as a competition between your players to see who is the better shooter. Competition is great for players because it brings the best out of each player, and it also reveals how each player will respond when the pressure is turned up.
Along with working on shooting, this basketball drill can be used for conditioning as well. It really helps to maximize time if you can combine working on a basketball skill and conditioning simultaneously. Along with saving time, though, this catch and shoot basketball shooting drill also teaches the shooter to fight through fatigue and still hit shots when they get tired. Make sure, though, that good form and basketball shooting fundamentals are being enforced as the player begins to get tired.
