I hope this video gets you thinking about a way to incorporate the types of shots you take in your offense into this drill or into the basketball drills that you use in your program.
I like this drill because it:
1) Offers one more drill so that you have a way to get variety into your summer workouts. I think that providing variety helps keep your players interested and motivated.
2) Creates two types of pressure on the shooters–one with having to beat the time of 4 minutes and the second of having to make two shots from one spot prior to moving on to the next spot.
3) Forces concentration and effort for a sustained period of time.
I like for 30% of our shooting workouts to involve technique or form and repetition shooting, 60% to be game pace shooting drills and the remaining 10% to be for a toughness shooting drill to finish the workout. I want for the toughness shooting drill to push the player as much as I can both physically and mentally.
I would classify this drill as a technique and repetition drill. I like to have ways to score and measure all drills–including form and repetitioin.
