Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

Catch and shoot

Two teams, each with two balls. On team O, 1 runs around a cone out at the 3-point line, gets a pass from 2, shoots, rebounds, gets the ball to 4 and goes to the back of the team line. After passing to 1, 2 runs around the cone for a pass from 3. First team to make 11 baskets.

See YouTube video - Competitive layup drill (no-dribble layups), Shooting - Mike Procopio warm-up, Tauer on the move.

Progression - Dribble and shoot.

Optionally start with close-out shooting on each side, see Close-out lines, 5star close-outs.

We can also vary the location of the players and cones, e.g.,

- zipper cut, double screen, downscreen (curl-pop-fade), baseline screen
- cut away from the basket
- blast and V cuts.

See Layups - Blast cuts, Shooting - 3-man 2-ball using screens, Borg, Blasone, Basic 4, Ten fingers, Pitino v-cut, also Lee Rose guards, Bill Self perimeter, Varidel workout, Pop-out, Team pop-out.

Don Kelbick corner screen - players cut from the top, use a chair on the baseline.

For transition shooting, run around cones out near halfcourt.

Option - one-dribble pull-ups.

See Shooting - Fast break, Noah Basketball (Sprint, Rip-thru).
