For this drill, the shooter should start just a few feet away (5 to 10 feet) from the basket. This is marked with a #1 on the diagram to the right.
You will shoot ten shots from that same spot. If you make at least seven out of ten, you can take a step back. You can adjust the step back based on the skill level. 2 to 5 feet will work for most players.
If you make less than seven, you get an “out.” You are only allowed 2 “outs” in the drill before the drill is over.
This is a great progressive drill for measuring and determining your shooting range. Wherever you get 2 outs is your current shooting range. This keeps you within your shooting range while also giving you a goal to shoot for to see how you can extend your range.
