1. One hand shot
How to execute
  • Use your dominant hand (left/right)
  • Go near the rim
  • Use your one hand only when performing this drill
  • Perform on the left/right side of the rim and on the front of the rim
Importance
This basketball shooting drill will improve your dominant hand and it will also improve your muscle memory. It will also improve your basketball shooting position but only using your 1 hand.


2. Shooting close into the hoop
How to execute
  • Make sure you are in the right shooting position
  • Maintain your balance
  • You should be close to the rim
  • Shoot on the left/right side of the rim and on the front of the rim
  • Do it for ten times each side
  • If you miss, go back to 1
Importance
This basketball shooting drill will help your muscle memory to improve, that is why you need to be in the right shooting position. If you are in the wrong position and continue to execute this drill, you are building a bad habit. I suggest you fix your shooting position first before executing this first drill.


3. Basic Layup drill (No dribble)
How to execute
  • Start on the free throw line
  • Make 2 steps only without travelling
  • Finish like a normal layup
  • Do it on both left and right side
Importance
This basketball shooting drill is very important because it will improve your layup. Many players are missing their free layup and fast break layup because they don’t know the basics. Don’t focus on finishing a layup first, focus on improving your layup first because if your layup is great you can finish well. If you can execute this drill well, I guarantee to you that you will never miss a single free layup.


4. Basic layup drill (with dribble)
How to execute
  • Start from the three point line
  • Dribble and pick up the ball if you are on the paint
  • Perform the layup
  • Do this on both left and right side of the rim
Importance
This basketball shooting drill will improve your layup and your finishing as well. This will also help you to maintain your timing on when to pick up the ball. Remember, don’t go too fast if you know you are already free from your defenders. Relax and execute the layup well.

This drills will help you to improve your shooting accuracy, especially for beginners. I suggest reading this and please put it in work. Be consistent! Consistent is the key!
