Very useful format and descriptions of drills. I am using Sportplan...
Tony, Coach

DESCRIPTION

A close up example of a free throw shot


A free throw game you can play is to ask your players to line up 5 feet away from the front of the rim. The coach will be under the basket.

Each player will shoot a shot 1 at a time.

Every shot will get evaluated by the coach and given a score out of 5.

5 being a perfect score.
