Make/Miss 2 Shots in a Row 14 Spot Basketball Shooting Drill


Hitting a shot under pressure when the game is on the line is a lot harder than making the same shot in an empty gym with no one watching. Although you cannot simulate that same game pressure in a drill, this basketball drill puts some pressure on the shooter to make shots.

For this catch and shoot basketball shooting drill, the shooter will have to make 2 shots in a row to move on to the next spot, but if they miss 2 in a row, they have to go back to the previous spot. This will help the shooter learn to hit multiple shots in a row and help them build mental toughness when shooting the ball.
