The Figure-8 Place your feet more than shoulder’s with apart, slightly bend your knees and bend at the waist. Hold the ball in your right hand, down by your right knee. Pass the ball behind your left knee to your left hand. Bring the ball around your left knee to the front and then pass the ball behind your right knee to your right hand. This will make a “figure-8” around your knees as you are passing the ball continuously. Keep going around and through your knees, first going around the front of your right knee to behind your left knee to your left hand, then going around the front of your left knee to behind your right knee to your right hand. Repeat this drill 15 times going as fast as you can. Then, repeat the drill going in the opposite direction. Remember: don’t watch the ball!
I will have a ball and be toward the wing position, about half-way between the baseline and the FT line extended. I want the player facing me, in ready, bent-knee stance, on good balance, with the arms extended toward the ball, hands anticipating a pass. I will pass in to the post and have them take the ball in to the chest, pressing the ball tight with both hands, elbows pointed out (parallel with the lane line). I emphasize always keeping the eyes on the ball, looking the pass right into their hands, before they attempt any other movement. Well do this several times, until the player is comfortable with the procedure and until I too feel they can do the drill and move on.
If you want to make sure that your team wins, then you will need to teach them how to shoot. By showing them the basic techniques and the techniques that are better for them to follow, they will have the ability to hit the basket every time they throw. By practicing the various spacing between the basket and the player, the skills will grow, allowing them to make the points that they want.
