This basketball shooting drill is designed to get up a lot of repetitions in a short period of time, but it is also set up to practice the proper footwork and basketball shooting mechanics. By developing the proper shooting technique and shooting habits, you will give yourself a strong foundation to build on.
Practice doesn’t make perfect; perfect practice makes perfect. So as you do this basketball drill, really focus on coming into your shot the correct way and making every shot count. If you are a basketball coach, make sure that you instruct your players the correct way and then monitor their shooting. The better you can do this as a coach, the more your team will make shots in a game when it matters most.
