clear.gifFundamentals - Off-Season Workouts

A workout usually covers dribbling, finishing, and shooting, including shooting challenges (see below). See the Skills checklists, also YouTube playlists - Workouts, Shooting challenges, Pro Training workout series.

The off-season lends itself to less-conventional drills, e.g. quick turns, ball-quick, and hop drills (see Keys to shooting), explosiveness (see Guard drills, e.g. Taylor Allan kills and pulls), using chairs (e.g. chair drills, elbow pickups), and advanced moves and finishing (e.g. KP Series, Daily dozen).

See Off-Season Workouts - Details for brief descriptions and links to individual drills in shooting, dribbling and post workouts, and Favourite drills for complementary drills.

Warm-up

Form shooting

Workouts

A shooting workout can cover

  • free throws
  • catch and shoot
    • spot-up
    • on the move - toward the basket (e.g. transition), laterally (e.g. around the horn), away from the basket (e.g. using screens)
  • shots off the dribble
    • pull-ups, stepbacks, drag pullbacks, spin and shoot, half spin, floaters, runners
    • first step (e.g. triple threat)
    • live dribble - transition, primary moves (e.g. hesitation), secondary moves, ballscreens.

Good shooters can shoot for makes or makes in a row; others can shoot for takes or time, or total makes instead of makes in a row. Use toss-outs in a solo workout for footwork.
