The results are more accurate shooters with increased range. The drills include: Cone Shooting: helps players refine their body control and have the ability to catch the ball quickly and shoot a jump shot while on the move Two Minute Shooting: works on developing mid-range and 3-point jump shots while forcing players to move and work on their catch-and-shoot technique Beat the Pro: players take seven shots and must avoid missing three to win this competition-style drill Post Play Coach Neal helps players develop a strong pivot foot so post players can improve their primary and counter moves. These include the jump hook, jump shot, spin move, and more. Neal also works on the inside pivot move to help posts score around the rim.
