Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

3 in a row


A shooter with rebounder and passer, two balls. The shooter picks a spot on the floor, must make 3 in a row before moving to another spot. Typically go for 5 minutes, how many spots of 3 in a row can he get, average shooters will get 13-15, good shooters 16-18, elite shooters 19+. For a right-hander, have the left foot down, ready to shoot (step with the right foot).

- one rebounder, one ball
- 2 in a rows.

Skylar Diggins-Smith - 3-Shot Streak Challenge - make 3 in a row from 5 spots.

Lee Rose - self-motivating shooting drills that require players to make five shots from one spot (or three in a row) before moving are highly effective. In his warm-up shooting, Elden Campbell had to make five in a row and would then keep going to see how many he could make consecutively before moving.

Mads Olesen - 3-in-3 - one player shoots for 3 minutes with one or two rebounders, each three in a row is one point, a) from the foul line, b) from behind the 3-point line.

PGC - "3 For" Shooting - 5 spots, make 3 in a row from 15 feet, 3 out of 4 from the 3-point line, 3 out of 5 from the NBA 3. Adjust the numbers, distance, or spots as needed (e.g. see Make 7 for 10).

See Free throws - Consecutive, 10 drills (3 or 2), Shooting - Streak, 2-minute, Bigelow 13 spots, Nash 2 in a row, Eagle.
