This team warm up shooting drill is going to 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 shooting drill like this though, you are able to maximize time with the amount of players that are able to shoot at each basket and also 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 drill to do that.
Drill Name: Reverse Pivot Team Warm Up Shooting Drill
Drill Goal: Work on footwork, balance, and shooting.
Equipment Needed: 1 basketball per player.
Tips: Keep the ball tight to your body when you pivot around and stay low and balanced as you spin around. Don't fall back on your shot and stick your follow through after you shoot the ball. This drill can be done for a certain amount of reps, makes, or time.
Directions: Each player will have their own ball and the line will start on the block facing up the lane line. The first players in line will jog out and spin the ball to themselves at the elbow. They will catch the ball in an athletic stance, reverse pivot, and then shoot the ball. The player that shot the ball will get their own rebound and then get back in line. Once a player makes four in a row they will switch lane lines and repeat.
