This basketball drill is called the Ray Allen shooting drill because Ray Allen is one of the best shooters at coming off of different types of screens and knocking down a shot. To be a great shooter on the move, you need to make sure that your footwork is right, you get your body squared up, you hold your follow-through, etc.
This basketball shooting drill will help the player learn all of these needed skills. It will allow the player to work on game-specific types of shots, which will allow them to be more comfortable when they get them during a game. And as much as this is a catch and shoot basketball drill, it is also great for working on conditioning.

Basketball Drill Instructions
- Set a chair on each side of the paint about 2 feet outside of the lane.
- The passer will start with the basketball at the top of the key, and the shooter will stand under the basket.
- The player can pick either side to curl the chair for a shot.
- He/she can also make a curl move and not receive the ball.
- When this happens, the player will immediately go back in the paint and then come out the other side for a curl or out the same side for another curl.
- After every shot, the player will reset under the hoop.
- Do 8-10 reps and then switch players or if you want, have multiple players just go in order.
