Dribble, Stop, Shoot

Set up: Players will form two lines marked by cones in front of the basket on each end of the free throw line.  There will be another cone marking the shooting spot closer to the basket for each line.  The first person in each line will start with a basketball.       

Movement: Players will take turns dribbling the ball from the first cone to the shooting cone, stopping, then taking a shot.  After shooting, the player will get the rebound, pass to the next player in line, and move to the back of the other line.   

Key Focus Points: Good dribble to the shooting cone.  Come to a complete and controlled stop.  Good shooting using the BEEF technique.  Balance; Eyes; Elbow; Follow through.  Encourage younger players to use their legs for power as the shoot up towards the basket.
