Basketball Lay-up Contest

This drill will help develop your basketball lay-up shot, unguarded.

Ideal Equipment: basketball, basketball hoop

Area: basketball court

Objective: Get the ball in the hoop as many times as possible

How to Play: Starting at the foul line, dribble up to the hoop and shoot a lay-up. Rebound it and make another lay-up. Make as many as you can in one minute.

For variety and to build arm strength, do this with your weak arm. You will be surprised at how many times you will miss a simple lay-up.

Another variation is to do the lay-up as part of a full court fast break. Sometimes this is the most intense shot ¬†when you have people running after you after you’ve stolen the ball.
