UW Sue Bird Shooting Drill

This shooting drill is from Washington women’s Coach Mike Neighbors.

The following is his description and diagrams of the drill that he saw Sue Bird using.

This is a good 1-2 step, Game Spot, Game Shot drill… Doesn’t really fit Game Speed because we aren’t on the move between shots.

Shooter starts in corner. We will attempt 10 3-point shots. If she makes 7 or more she moves to the next spot on the wing. If she makes 6 she stays at the same spot.

If she makes 5 or fewer she moves backward a spot. We shot corner-wing-top-wingcorner-wing-top-win-corner…

After the last spot, the move is to the FT line… must hit 3 Free Throws in a row to complete the drill.

This is a good warm-up or cool-down drill to work into your shooting workouts.

Variations:

Can change the numbers to accommodate skill level.

Shoot the seams rather than the spots.

We make it competitive if shooting head to head with first player to complete the spots. Can be total makes. Can be timed if you have good rebounders.
