Sometimes it can be boring shooting set shot after set shot and your mind has the tendency to checkout. This equals sloppy shooting form and bad habits. It is important to stay locked in mentally when shooting, and drills like this are great for helping with that.
This shooting drill is a simple catch and shoot drill, but it has a competition factor that is going to force the player to stay mentally engaged on every shot. It is also a great drill to work on shooting under pressure because there are a certain number of shots that must be made in a row at each spot.
