Basketball Drill Demonstration


Players should throw the ball in the air slightly ahead of themselves for them to step onto.

As they catch the ball they should jump slightly.

As they turn towards in mid-air towards where the basket is they should raise the ball above their head so that when they land they are ready to shoot.

Coaching points

First coach this skill to players individually, getting them to perform the jump shot position without actually shooting.

Once they have understood the movement put players into pairs, with one ball between two and shoot at a basket.
