This drill is from an old Weber State Mens Basketball Coaching Newsletter.
It was put together by then Weber State Assistant Coach Phil Beckner. Since then, Coach Beckner has held assistant coaching positions in the D League, with Nebraska, and now at Boise State.
Coach Beckner is currently on the staff at Boise State.
The License is an out of season shooting workout we use to challenge our guys and get them extra shots.
The players must score a 35 or better 5 times in order to get The License. Each shot made is one point.
Only players with The License are allowed to shoot three’s during the season.
You can adapt it to fit the level that you coach and the skill levels of your players.
These standards are for a Division I men’s program where 2013 unanimous choice NBA Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard played.
I would start anywhere from 28 to 30 for high schools and modify your standards as you see how your team stacks up.
