Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

Dribble and shoot

Two teams, 2-3 balls each. The first player on each team dribbles out through a cone course then back for a layup or pull-up shot, rebounds, and passes to a teammate. The second player goes when the first reaches the last cone. First team to 11 baskets, switch sides. Vary the slalom course (two options are shown), can go fullcourt, or use both ends with four teams.

Damin Altizer - Steph Curry range game - dribble from the baseline around a cone, shoot off the dribble (1-2 inside-outside footwork), make 7 in a row, shoot from the next cone further away from the basket, continue.
