Touch Shooting Basketball Drill


There are a lot of things that go into winning basketball games, but a big part of it is being able to make shots. As a coach, you can draw up as many basketball plays as you want, but it ultimately comes down to players being able to take and make shots. So it makes sense to spend time working on developing your team’s shooting regularly.

This is a great team basketball drill that you can do at the beginning of practice to help your players work on technique, form, and seeing the ball go in the basket. It doesn’t take very long either and can be done without being monitored by a coach. So it is the perfect basketball drill to have players do when they first enter the gym before practice.
