Goals of the Drill

  • Work on your catch and shoot shot.


Coaching Points

  • Come into your shot the same way every time and hold your follow-through.
  • Focus on the shot you are shooting and have a short memory if you missed the last shot.


Basketball Drill Instructions

  • You will set up 9 cones around the 3 point line just inside the arc (3-4 feet apart).
  • The shooter will start at the first cone in the corner, ready to shoot.
  • Each of the 9 cones is an inning, and at each cone, you get 3 outs.
  • Every miss is an out, so once you get 3 outs at the first cone, you go to the next cone, and the inning starts over.
  • The way you score runs is by making shots.
  • If you make a shot, but it hits the rim or backboard, it is considered a single, but if you get a swish, it is considered a home run.
  • So, for example, if you have 3 singles (3 people on base) and you hit a home run (swish), then you get four runs/points.
  • In that same situation, if you make a shot with 3 people on base, you get 1 run/point cause you sent someone home.
  • The drill is finished when you have gotten 3 outs at all 9 cones.
