Championship Basketball Shooting Drill


Being able to shoot the basketball at a high level has a lot to do with mental toughness and being able to lock in even when you are tired. During a game, you may miss a couple of shots in a row, or you may be tired from the course of the game, but a great shooter in basketball is still able to step up and make the big shot.

This combination basketball shooting drill will force the player to make shots with pressure on them and while they are fatigued. It is a great basketball shooting drill to do at the end of a workout to test the player’s ability to be mentally tough and make shots.

  • Once they complete that, they must make a one-dribble pull-up going right and one going left.
  • Finally, they must make a rip through layup/dunk going right and then going left.
  • Once they complete all of these makes from the corner, they will repeat from the wing.
