UCLA Shooting

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.

Each player in the line with number 1 has a basketball.

UCLA Shooting
How it works

1.To start the drill the player in line 1 throws the basketball off the backboard and jumps as high as he can and rebounds it.

2.The player chins the basketball and outlets it to line 2.

3.When the player passes the basketball he fills in behind line 2.

4.Line 2 receives the ball and passes it to line 3.

5.Before line 3 receives the ball the player must v-cut to come to the ball. When the player passes the ball from line 3 he fills in behind line 3.

6.When line 3 receives the ball he passes it to line 4 for a backdoor layup which is also set up by a v-cut.

7.I usually have a coach under the basket with line 4 with a football pad trying to create some contact on the layup.

8.After the player in line 4 finishes the layup he speed dribbles to the other end and throws the basketball off the backboard and the drill starts again.
