*Circle Shooting is a very popular shooting drill, and for good reason. This drill flows best with at least 5 players and 2 basketballs.
-Player 1 circle cuts around the cone (aka Coach).
-We emphasize the inside pivot. In this diagram Player 1 plants his right foot and front pivots on the catch (heel-toe).
-Player 1 shoots (not a layup).
*At this first spot we like for the shooter to shoot with his left-hand on the left side and right-hand on the right side.
-Immediately after passing, Player 2 circles cuts and repeats the action with a front left pivot.
-Meanwhile, Player 1 gets his own and takes the ball to the line he is going to.
*After a few minutes or certain number of makes, we will progress to the next spot.
