This basketball drill will improve conditioning, passing on the run (fast break), and shooting of the break. It's also aimed at giving the team a sense of accomplishment by working together to score a set amount of points without allowing the basketball to hit the floor. The Above Ground basketball drill is a great way to end practice, but make sure to set a reasonable goal for your players, then as they improve, raise the stakes. Make sure players set their feet before taking the jump shot, and make crisp catchable passes.
