Now we are going to use three spots to do shooting warm ups with when we teach skills. The first spot is the lay up spot. I am going to have both of our players with their partners receive the ball into a shooting position, go ahead, they are in their shooting position they can shoot when they are ready and we like them to make a minimum of five shots from each spot, let us take a look at shot number one while they finish, go ahead.
By using partners, we are not only checking our teammate’s mechanics out but we are also encouraging communication if it is needed and teamwork.
The second spot that we like to warm up from is on the second hash mark of the foul lane. We always want to begin in close and work your way backwards, it is less frustrating, it helps to build confidence and it allows your muscles and joints to warm up properly.
In spot number two, you are also going to make a minimum of five to ten shots. Ten is really a good number, it does not get to frustrating for young players but it allows them to get into a shooting rhythm. If you are just starting out with a young player you might want to only have them five the first week or two so that they will not get too discouraged.
Third spot is from the foul lane corners and it is always good to have players make a minimum of five shot and possibly up to ten depending on what their skill level is at and how long they have been playing. Ages ten and under should never practice shots from a three point perimeter because they just physically do not have the strength to do it and they are going to develop that mechanic. To the one shot they would make out of twenty, from there they could probably make eight or nine from the foul line and in if they are more intelligent about their shooting habit. This is the third spot on our three spot warm up of the youth league.
