One of those basketball training drills that are great for practice and even better for pre-game warm-up, the Four Point Shooting Drill gets players shooting, rebounding, passing and moving quickly, gets the blood pumping and sharpens basketball skills. It's an easy drill to learn and a great drill to warm up with before the game.
Basketball drills that provide an effective pre-game warm up need to work on several things at once - at least one skill, plus some cardio, plus some movement to get muscles stretched and ready to play.
Layups are a good, easy start to a warm up, but many coaches tend to go quickly to a drill like the three man weave or the weave to half; 2 on 1 back drill to get the blood pumping and players pumped up. These are good drills that I use often, but lets not forget to warm up our shooting as well.
There are plenty of shooting drills that will serve as good pre-game drills - I often simply have my players shoot across the key. But the Four Point Shooting Drill involves movement as well as shooting, which makes it a good pre-game warm up drill.
Four Point Shooting Drill
Constantly remind players to work on quick release during this drill - they should focus on shooting as soon as they receive the pass. Good form is important as well, of course, but you want this drill to move quickly and, as always, to reflect a real-game situation as best it can.
This lends itself effortlessly to being a good warm up drill, but it is also a good drill for practices, something that would fit well into your portfolio of basketball training drills for shooting. Coaches very often use the 3 man weave at the beginning of practice - this is one more drill to fit that bill!
