Six Ball Shooting Drill

Athlete Movements: This would mimic a scenario where the defense turns over the offense and they are shooting quickly in the conversion from defense to offense. There are three kinds of shots in the drill: 1) Catch and shoot mid-range 2) Catch midrange, shot fake, and pull up 3) Catch and shoot behind the 3-point line. There is also emphasis on the passers in this drill. The passers must deliver the ball right where the shooter wants it, inside the shooting pocket.

Teaching Points:

1) Run the floor hard
2) Catch & Be ready to shoot
3) Good passes
4) Work on shot fakes and scoring off the dribble
