Basketball Team Shooting Drills For Coaches & Players


Written by Coach Peterman

I have coached at the NCAA Division 2 (Southwestern Oklahoma State University), NAIA (USAO), and JUCO Levels (Blinn College and Carl Albert State College) as well as high school. I just felt that fellow coaches especially young coaches need to constantly work on their “game”. Just like the basketball players that we coach. We as coaches need to improve ourselves. That is my story and why I do this blog.

Tips To Improve Your Shot

Even if you have the basic knowledge, it is always important to have some tips that can help you improve your basketball shot. The basic tips that you can put into practice are the following:

  1. You Must Think About The Hoop

The first thing you should do is locate the ring in mind so that your brain can calculate the distance between you and the ring. This is a skill that you should put into practice so that your eyes can be in the hoop.

  1. You Must Finish Your Shot With A Soft Hand

Many players usually end their shot with their hands and wrist tense, but experts recommended that they must relax their wrist and fingers at the end of the shot. The player will achieve better steering and more precision and sensitivity.

  1. During The Game, You Should Not Think About The Negative Comments About The Shot

Leave these negative comments and your shooting techniques for practice days; while you’re in the game, don’t think about it. This can distract you and lose the concentration you need at the moment for the game.

  1. You Must Land In The Same Place

When taking a shot, balance is very important. When you shoot and take the jump that will take you to the shot, you should fall close to where the jump-started. With this balance, you will give more stability to your arms, and you will have better precision in the shot.
