Team Shooting Drill: “UConn”

I received these two shooting drills in an email from Dennis Hutter, Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Mayville State University. His website, . The website has more shooting, individual development workout, and leadership videos.

These drill might not fit the skill level of all of your players or be the types of shots your players get in games.

The philosophy of this site is to use the ideas presented and adapt them to fit what you need to be able to do:

Here is what Coach Hutter said about the two drills:


This is a TEAM shooting drill that is made competitive through time and score. The goal of the drill is to try and have your team make 80 total shots in 5:00. The team is only allowed six basketballs for this drill. The drill is broken down into minute long segments of shots as follows:

0:00-1:00 – Corner 3’s
1:00-2:00 – Straight Cut 3’s
2:00-3:00 – Top of the Key 3’s
3:00-4:00 – Straight Cut 3’s – opposite side from start
4:00-5:00 – Corner 3’s – opposite side from start

“60 Point” Shooting

The object of the drill is to try and make 60 total shots. There are five spots at which you can shoot from: the corner, wing, top of key, wing and corner. Start in a corner and continue to shoot at each spot until you have missed 2 IN A ROW. Once you have missed two shots in a row, you move to the next spot. The goal is to make 60 shots before missing two shots in a row from the final corner spot.

Both of these videos are You Tube videos, so please be sure to be on a server that allows you to access You Tube.
