This basketball shooting drill will work on several different types of shots, all in the same drill. It is going to help the player work on their footwork and coming into different types of shots the correct way, but it is also going to make them have to think about what they are doing. Typically, most basketball drills don’t require this much thinking, but this drill will make the player think about what type of shot they must do next, the correct way to do the shot, and then ultimately make the shot.
Along with working on all of those things, this combination basketball shooting drill will also be used as a conditioning drill. It is great to use at the end of basketball training to test the player’s ability to make shots when tired and stay mentally engaged.

Basketball Drill Instructions
- Set up two chairs on one side of the floor in a staggered pattern (simulate a double down screen), and another chair on the other side of the floor just inside the 3 point line (simulate a ball screen).
- The player will start under the basket, the passer will be at the top of the key, and the rebounder will be by the basket.
- The player will set up their imaginary defender and then come off the first double down screen chair for a curl one dribble floater.
- They will set their defender up again under the basket and then come out the opposite side to the single chair and use that as a fade screen for a shot in the corner.
- They will again set up under the basket and then use the double down screen for a straight cut catch and shoot shot.
- Once again, they will set up under the basket before straight cutting out to the single side chair.
- They will get a catch and then come off the chair like a ball screen for a pull-up jump shot at the nail hole (free throw line).
- Repeat this two more times for a total of 12 shots.
