Today’s post is an idea for a competitive shooting drill with Brian Baudinet, former Assistant Coach with the NBA Development League’s Tulsa 66ers (Since relocated and renamed to the Oklahoma City Blue).
Coach Baudinet is currently the Head Boy’s Basketball Coach at Canterbury Prep School in CT.
You can use this drill as a part of your fall shooting workouts or save it for the individual skill development portion ofyour winter practices.
I like finding varieties of ways of keeping score and putting some pressure on the shooter. You could also add a timed segment to the drill to put another type of pressure on your shooter.
You can change the types of shots that you shoot to fit your system.
Another tweak you can make is to change the scoring to fit the level of your players. For example, making 15 without missing through could be “Gold”, making 13 and missing 3 could be “Silver,” 11 and 3 “bronze,” etc… You could use D1, D2, D3, Champion, Varsity, JV, or whatever levels are appropriate for your team.
This video is one of the great resources available from basketballhq. They have several more videos as well as resource articles.
