60 Point Shooter

Setup

  1. Nothing more is needed for this basketball shooting game other than a ball and the players.

Instructions

  1. The game begins with the player taking a three point shot from anywhere along the three point line.  If the shot is made it is worth 3 points.  
  2. After the shot (made or missed) the player rebounds the ball gets one dribble and must shoot from there for their second shot of the game.  This shot is worth 2 points.  
  3. After the second shot the player then takes a free throw.  
  4. That ends the round and the next player in the game then takes their turn.  
  5. There is a possible 6 points per round.  
  6. There are 5 rounds per half, thus a total of 60 maximum points for the game. 

Variations

  • The coach can vary the number of rounds each half.  
  • You could have a mini tournament where winners advance and losers are out.

Coaching Points

  • Focus on good shooting form.  
  • Good balance, footwork and follow through.  
  • Speed getting to the rebound is also emphasized as it will most likely result in an easier second shot.
