Basketball players need to see shots go in; the more they can see shots go in, the more confidence they will play with. So it is important to try and find time during practice to work on shooting. Unfortunately, as pretty much every coach knows, it seems like there is never enough time in practice to work on everything that you want to. So you need to find team basketball drills that maximize time.
This team shooting drill is great at maximizing time for two reasons, it allows every player to be involved in the basketball drill, and it can be substituted in as part of warming up. Players will get themselves going, work on shooting touch, and see the ball go in the basket.
