Basketball Drills Around the Horn Shooting

This drill forces the player to remain ready to shoot the ball because they don’t know when it is coming to them. Even though there is only one shooter in the drill, I believe that you could make this a team drill with at least a couple of players shooting at a basket at a time.

It gives you an opportunity to practice footwork and is a way to work on shooting when fatigued.

The shooter starts in the corner, and the passer/rebounder is stationed in the lane. When the drill starts the shooter moves around the arc until the passer throws them the ball. The pass can be made at any time.

After the shot is taken the shooter return to the corner where they started and go again.

Basketball Drills “Baseball” Shooting

You might not want to use this exact same scoring system, but hopefully it gives you an idea to find a way to structure a drill that scores in a slightly different way.

Set 9 spots around the 3 point arc for the nine “innings”. The shooter gets three outs (shots missed) per inning just like baseball. Once you have three outs, you move on to the next inning (spot).

If the shooter makes a shot, but hits the rim, they get a single. A swish is a homerun. The object is to score as many “runs” as possible using those rules. The video has an example and more details on scoring. Once the players shoots nine innings, the drill is over.
