Anytime that you can add a mental aspect to a shooting drill or some kind of challenge to beat you are able to help the shooter stay engaged and locked in on every shot. This goes back to the argument of quality over quantity when it comes to shooting.
It is important that you are practicing your shot at game speed and shooting drills like the 100 point shooting drill will help you do that. Also, learning to shoot with pressure on you can help to simulate the pressure that comes with shooting a big shot in a game. Learning to deal with pressure during shooting drills can really help you out as a shooter.
Drill Name: 100 Point Shooting Drill
Drill Goal: Work on shooting at game speed and getting a lot of quality shot repetitions.
Equipment Needed: 1 basketball and 1 rebounder.
Tips: Lock in and shoot the same way every time. Don't allow pressure to get to you, shoot one shot at a time. To help the shooter out you can start on a make in the first corner if you want.
Directions: The goal of this drill is for the shooter to reach 100 total points (2's and 3's) and they have 10 spots to do it from; 3 pointers corner/mid range corner, 3 pointers wing/mid range wing, 3 pointers top of the key/mid range top of the key, 3 pointers opposite wing/mid range opposite wing, and 3 pointers opposite corner/mid range opposite corner. The shooter will start in the corner shooting 3's.
They will continue to shoot until they miss a shot and will keep track of their total points (For example: if a shooter makes 3 in a row from the corner and then misses the 4th they will have a total of 9 points and must move on to the next spot). The player will then move to mid range shots in the corner until they miss, all of these makes are worth two points apiece. Continue all the way around the 10 spots keeping this same pattern and adding your points up as you go.
