- Read the defense off of a down screen or pin down screen
- Make open shots from 15 to 19 feet at 70 to 80 percent
- Score in transition
- Be a great perimeter defender and contain defensive penetration
- Be in great shape both mentally and physically
- Finish around the rim with secondary moves
Wing Basketball Drills for Offense
Wood covers everything you need to become the complete wing. A variety of drills are covered using a number of props including cones and chairs. The emphasis is on building a repertoire of moves that allows you to attack the defense. Wood and Drake demonstrate the drills at full speed to prepare you for actual game situations. There are shooting drills off the catch, off screens, and in transition.
Wing Basketball Drills for Defense
Being an elite defender is also part of being a complete wing and Wood and Drake share with you a number of defensive drills that can be used in your individual workouts or during your actual team practices.
