This drill helps players develop quick shooting skills, helpful when a defender closes out on you in a game. It also develops speed, quickness and shooting under pressure with heightened sense of urgency.
How to Perform:
1.All players line up at the free-throw line.
2.The first two in line have a ball.
3.The first player shoots a free throw.
4.The second player shoots a free throw.
5.If the first player makes the free throw, he or she gets the rebound and passes it to the next player in line who shoots a free throw.
6.If the first player misses his/her free throw, he/she must get the rebound and make a layup before the second player takes a shot.
7.If the first player makes his/her shot before the second player, he or she goes to the back of the line and waits for another turn.
8.If the second player makes his/her shot before the first player, the first player is knocked out and the second player goes to the back of the line and stays in the drill.
9.Each time a player makes a shot, the next player in line shoots to try to knock the preceding player out.
10.The drill continues until only one player remains—the winner. He or she starts the next round as the first person in line.
