Divide the court into four quadrants, require the shooter to make 10 shots from each area with a partner rebounding and passing

Get players lots of reps from various areas on the floor. Don’t allow shooters to gettoo comfortable in a single spot on the floor.

Divide the court into quadrants. Split the court down the middle of the lane out to mid-court while also splitting it across the free-throw line. Inform players if you want them shooting all 3-pointers, mid-range jumpers or if they can work in layups.

The shooter’s partner starts under the hoop and serves as the rebounder, as well as outlet passer. The action begins with a shot from one of the quadrants [1]. The shooter remains in the same quadrant until 10 shots are made [2]. The shooter doesn’tremain in one spot but moves around the quadrant receiving passes from the partner and shooting [3].


The shooter must make 10 shots from each quadrant. Keep track of how many shots it takes to advance to the next area, and total shots it takes to make 40. See if a shooter’s accuracy decreases as he/she gets tired. If time is a concern, decrease the number of made shots necessary (can be five from each quadrant, for example).
