Youth Basketball Drills - Shotgun Passing Drill



Purpose:
Great drill for teaching players to use their peripheral vision when passing and receiving the basketball so they can see the entire court.
Procedure:

Six players are at each end of the basketball court. In each group, one player stands with a ball at the free throw line, facing away from the basket. The other five players position themselves in a semicircle from one side of the free throw line to the other, facing their teammate out front in the shotgun position. One player among the five in the semicircle has a basketball. The drill begins with the player in the shotgun position throwing a chest pass to one of the four players in the semi-circle who does not have a ball. As soon as the pass is made, the player in the semi-circle who began the drill with a ball, chest passes the ball to the shotgun. This drill continues for 1 or 2 minutes and then players rotate clockwise so the player on the right moves to the shotgun position and the shotgun position moves to the left side of the semi-circle.
