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 SHOOTING
Begin below the block so that your body is squared up to the side of the basket. Place both your hands on the ball in shooting position and place the ball at waist level. Without jumping, shoot the ball at the side of the backboard so that it falls directly back down to you. Repeat until you have 10 perfect shots.
PHASE 2: BANK SWISH SHOOTING
Stand in front of the rim so that you are about 1 foot away. Place the ball at waist level, hands at shooting position. Shoot the ball so that it banks off the backboard and then falls into a swish in the net. Repeat until you have 10 perfect bank swishes.
PHASE 3: FLOW SHOOTING
Step back so that you are 1 foot in front of the free throw line. Place your hands in a shooting position on the ball, and place the ball at waist level. Take 1 hop straight up and down. As soon as you land out of your hop, explode up into your shooting motion. The objective is to swish 10 shots.
PHASE 4: DRIBBLE PULL-UP SHOOTING
Start behind the free throw line with your hands on the ball in a shooting position, and the ball at waist level. Rip the ball in a tiny circle and take 2 dribbles right. Your first dribble should cover ground, and the second dribble should slam straight down and act as brakes for your body. Raise up and shoot a shot. Repeat the same going left. Swish 10 shots.
