DOW (1)-1

It can be a challenge creating game-like shooting drills for small group workouts (e.g., 2-4 players). This contested shooting drill simulates game-like shooting with a defender quickly closing out.

Contested Closeout Shooting

  • The defender will start at 3-point line.
  • The shooter will start 5 to 6 feet behind the 3-point line.
  • On the Dish’s pass out to the shooter, the shooter steps in to receive the pass at the 3-point line.
  • At the same time, the defender touches the free throw line then sprints to contest the shot.
