Basketball Fastbreak Shooting Drill

This basketball fastbreak shooting drill will focus on shooting while on a fast-break as well as ball handling skills while on the dribble.

Basketball Fastbreak Shooting Drill

Setup

  1. Set 4-5 cones out, or use the markings on the floor, from which you will shoot.
  2. Start at half court with a ball.

Instructions

  1. Throw the ball with backspin towards the spot high enough where you can reach the ball in one bounce.
  2. Sprint to the ball, step into a jump shot and shoot. If you miss, get your rebound and score a lay up.
  3. When dribbling back to the starting point at half court, do a move or spin at the 3-point line to focus on ball handling skills.
  4. Rotate to each cone until you have performed 4-5 shots from each cone.

Variations

  1. If you are working with a partner, have the partner throw you the ball as you are sprinting to the spot to simulate a true break-away. Again, if you miss, get your rebound and score a lay up. On your way back to half-court, have your partner meet you at the 3-point line and stand so you can do a move or spin around them. At this point, they should not defend you, only act as a decoy.

Coaching Points

Focus on:

  1. Good hands receiving the break-away pass.
  2. Stepping into the jump shot and good shooting technique.
  3. Quickly retreiving the rebound and finishing with a lay-up.
  4. Good Close control on the dribble with the ability to perform and sell a good move.
