About This Play/Drill

This is part of John Leonzo's Solo Summer Shooting Workout. I recommend making no fewer than 200 shots a day, 6 days a week. Be sure to remind your players that there is no magic in the drills, in the facility, or in the coach that is with them, the magic is in the work. Improvement has a knack for following consistent work ethic and persistence.

  • PHASE 1: SIDE TO SIDE SHOOTING

     

    Place the ball in your hands in shooting position and at waist level. Take a hop to your left, and then back to the right. When landing back where you began, raise up and shoot the ball. Repeat the same exercise going right. Do this until 10 shots are swished. The objective is to be straight up and down on your shot.

  • PHASE 2: BACK TO FRONT SHOOTING

     

    Place the ball in your hands in shooting position and at waist level. Take a hop backwards and land on one leg balancing, then push off that leg and land in a 1-2 step and shoot the ball. For the next shot, land on the opposite leg. Repeat the same exercise going right. Do this until 10 shots are swished. The objective is to be straight up and down on your shot.

  • PHASE 3: DIAGONAL SHOOTING

     

    Place the ball in your hands in shooting position and at waist level. Push off your left leg and land at the right elbow on your right foot. Then push diagonally off your right foot and land left-right in the middle of the key and shoot the ball. Do this until 10 shots are swished. The objective is to be straight up and down on your shot.
