Sometimes basketball shooting drills can become mundane, and the challenge is keeping them interesting and fun while also getting better. That is especially true when it comes to catch and shoot basketball shooting drills. Players need a large number of quality repetitions, but sometimes it can be easy to check out mentally.
The 100 point shooting drill is designed to help work on shooting, but it is also a great basketball drill to keep players engaged. It also helps the player to work on making shots under pressure. Each player will compete against themselves and their teammates for the best score each time they go through the drill.

Basketball Drill Instructions
- The player will start in the corner, down ready to shoot, and the passer will be in the paint.
- The shooter will shoot a 3 pointer, mid-range shot, and a layup before moving on to the next spot.
- They will shoot from a total of 5 different spots (corner, wing, top of the key, opposite wing, and opposite corner), repeating the same 3 shot pattern.
- After they complete all 5 spots, they will shoot a one and one free throw.
- This completes one quarter. Once the player completes all four quarters, the drill is over.
- The scoring breakdown is this: 3 pointers = 3 points, mid range shots = 2 points, layups/dunks = 1 point, and free throws = 1 point.
