5 Multi Shot Drills

Quickly! What's the most fun part of basketball? If you are like many of the players I have worked with you probably said "shooting". Well, guess what? You are wrong. Shooting is not the most fun part of basketball. Don't believe me? Go ask the player that had a bad shooting night from the floor. Or the deep shooter that was 1-7 from the three point line. Go ask Dwight Howard. During game 2 of the Western Conference Semi-finals he shot 8-21 from the free throw line. Nothing fun there. So, you maybe wondering, what is the most fun part of basketball? Well, it's making shots. 

I'm not going to get into how to shoot the basketball and proper mechanics or footwork. All I have for this blog is 5 diagram drills that include multiple shots. This puts a little twist on the normal shooting drills. Instead of staying in one spot and shooting multiple shots, these drills include having the players shoot a variety of shots from different areas of the floor. This is a great way to keep players engaged and add random practice to your workouts. Block shooting or block practicing is still great. Especially if you want to get up a high volume of shots or if you are working with a beginner. As the player develops it's good to mix in a number of shots from different areas of the floor. 

During these drills you can go for a number of reps, time, or makes. This will be dependent on what you want your player to accomplish and their skill level. Below I have a an extra drill that include multiple shots from my YouTube page. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below or send an email to
