This team basketball drill will work on footwork, staying balanced, and getting up a lot of high-quality shots in a short period of time. Sometimes during the course of the season, it becomes difficult to budget off a lot of time for player development because there are so many other areas that need to be worked on.
With a warm-up basketball shooting drill like this, though, you can maximize time with the number of players that can shoot at each basket and because you are using it to get warmed up before practice. Players need to see the ball go in the basket to have confidence in their shot, and this is a really great basketball drill to do that.
