Basketball Agility work to Shooting

Setup

Plenty of basketballs and agility equipment such as cones.

Instructions

Using halfcourt.  Place the cones or use the existing lines on the court to plan out a short agility course for the players to navigate.  Make sure the course ends in a shooting area.  Have another passing line.  The player navigates the agility course and enters the shooting zone.  There the player receives a pass and shoots.   After shooting the player shags the ball and goes to the passing line.  The passer goes to the agility line.

Variations

Lots and lots of freedom and possibilities here.  Move the agility course all over the offensive end of the court.  Have the agility area end with different types of shots...layups, baseline jumpers, free throw line jumpers, three pointers etc etc.  Have the players navigate the agility differently......hopping on one foot, shuffle etc etc.  Change the pass to a bounce pass.

Make it a competetion.  First player to hit 5 jumpshots wins.

Coaching Points

Good footwork.  Speed.  Do it fast or you won't improve.  Focus on not hitting cones.  Gather yourself for the jumpshot.  Good balance and footwork on the shot.  Do not rush it.
