This basketball shooting drill will work on the mid-range catch and shoot shot from different spots on the floor, as well as coming into the shot from different angles. It is a great drill for working on coming into your shot the correct way every time; showing your hands, dropping your butt, and stepping into your shot. Basketball drills like this will allow you to get a lot of repetitions at these movements, which will help you become a better shooter in game situations.
It is very similar to the Star Shooting Basketball Drill, but it only has one partner to pass and rebound. So it is a great drill to use if you only have one partner. Also, the angles and footwork are a little bit different coming into each shot. This is a great catch and shoot basketball shooting drill to use at the beginning of a workout or practice to get warmed up. Make sure that you are really locking in on form and technique for every shot.
