This is part two in a five-part series on shooting drills to enhance your offense. Hopefully, some of these drills will be useful to you. If not, maybe you can design a drill that repeats the most crucial action of your go-to plays.
Flex Offense Shooting
Our drills for Flex Offense shooting require two coaches, trainers or managers. We try to stress the importance of good timing, and holding your spot and letting a teammate run off your screen, or being patient and waiting for your screen if it’s designed to. We also like to stress getting low after a screen and having ready hands for a quick, smooth catch and shoot. In the first set, (fig.1) there are two lines, with the first two turns each having a ball, the players pass the balls to the trainers/coaches. 2 sets a screen for 1 to go to the corner for a catch and shoot. 2, then rolls off, curls to the elbow for a catch and shoot. Passes are coming from the coach opposite the coach they passed to.
In the second set of shooting, (fig. 2) there are two lines, with the first two turns each having a ball, the players pass the balls to the trainers/coaches. 2 goes to set a screen for 1 who flex cuts to the basket for a finish. 2, then rolls up the corner for a 3 point shot. Passes are coming from the coach opposite the coach they passed to.
