You can adjust the distance and type of shots (catch and shoot, shot fake 1 dribble, floaters) to suit your needs.

2 basketballs per 3 player group.

3 is rebounder, 2 is passer, 1 is shooter for 1 minute.

Each minute sound horn and players rotate from shooter to rebounder, rebounder to passer, passer to shooter.

Drill works best for long term development if player calls out score for manager or coach to record after each round. Keep record and post progress of each player.
