Footwork has a big impact on the percentage of a shot going in or not. This is especially true when coming off of a down screen, or cutting out to the 3 point line for a shot. The shooter needs to do a great job of getting their body back towards the basket and squared up before shooting the ball. It takes repetition upon repetition to get this down the correct way, so it is important that you spend a lot of time working on developing great footwork coming into your shot.
This shooting drill will allow you to work on your footwork and shooting, even if you don’t have a passer. That means that you are able to get the repetitions that you need, even without a partner. It is also a drill that can be used to work on conditioning as well. If the player executes the drill at a high speed, it will allow them to also develop their conditioning.

Tips: Spin the ball to yourself from different spots on the floor to make sure that you are practicing coming into your shot from all different areas on the floor. Come into your shot with the same footwork every time, and make sure that you are getting your body squared to the basket before each shot. If you feel yourself drifting after your shot, you aren’t getting squared up enough before the shot. Player should be getting around 12 shots per minute.
Directions: Start anywhere you want inside the 3 point line with the ball. Spin the ball out to yourself outside the 3 point line somewhere around the arc. As you are catching the ball, come into your shot, and shoot a catch and shoot 3 point shot. Go get your rebound, dribble out to near the 3 point line, and then spin the ball out to yourself again. Continue this pattern for a minute, and keep track of how many makes you get.
