In Week 7, we will be practicing shooting and dribbling drill that is fun for all.
Catch and shoot drill
Players divide into 2 lines evenly and stand behind the cones on the 3 point line mark. There will be 2 balls involved in this drill. The second player (B) in the line on the right starts with the basketball whilst the first player (A) in the line on the left starts with the basketball.
The first player (C) on the right begins the drill by running down to the base line and then up to the elbow into the free throw line ready to catch the pass from the player (A) on the left. Player (C) then shoots and catches their own rebound and passes it off to the next player in line (D) on the left, then runs to the back of that queue.
This drill is a mirror on both sides. After Player (A) passes the ball, he/she starts running down to the base line and then up to the elbow into the free throw line ready to catch the pass from player (B) on the right. Player (A) then shoots and catches their own rebound and pass it off to the next player in line on the right, then runs to the back of that queue.
Players must make 5 buckets in a row to end the drill.
Dribble and steal drill
Each player needs to have a basketball. The aim of the drill is to dribble continuously whilst trying to steal or knock the basketball away from the other players. Once the basketball goes out of bounds, the player who have lost their basketball sits out. Last man standing with the basketball wins.
Passing and defense drill
The aim of this drill is to teach players to pass the ball properly without trying to lose the ball to the opposition team. This also teaches the players how to play effective defense strategies. The first team to maintain the possession of the basketball inside the 3 point range for a full 3 minutes wins. Timer stops when the ball is outside of the 3 point range.
