This is a great warm-up basketball shooting drill, as well as a great drill to work on your touch and shooting form. You will get a lot of repetitions in a short amount of time and are really able to focus on shooting technique.
During this basketball drill, you want to focus on catching the ball in rhythm, proper mechanics, jump straight up and down, and hold your follow-through. Really lock in on all of the shooting details that separate the great shooters from the good shooters.

Basketball Drill Instructions
- Start on one of the blocks, ready to step into your shot.
- The partner will pass the ball to you for the shot and then relocate to the other side of the basket (the partner is trying to make sure that the ball doesn’t touch the ground).
- Shoot the basketball off the backboard.
- Land, hold your follow-through, and if the ball goes in, jog over to the opposite block and do the same thing.
- If you miss the shot, reset and get ready to shot again at the same block.
- You only move to the other block if you make the shot, and you have to make 8-12 total shots.
