End to End Shooting Drill

This shooting drill also has a significant conditioning element involved.  Six players are positioned on the baseline, three at each end, each with a basketball.  Six shooters begin on the mid-court line, three will go in one direction and three will go in the opposite direction.

3 Player Challenge Shooting Drill

The 3 Player Challenge Shooting drill allows players to work on shooting under pressure, pass faking and passing to an open teammate.  The offensive players are limited to one pass and the goal of the defender is to block or tip a shot.
