This basketball drill uses the Goalrilla G Trainer to work on pass, catch and reaction drills on the offensive end. It allows players to move at game speed and work on reacting to the defense, while freeing themselves up for an open shot to the basketball goal. The Goalrilla G Trainer is set up at the free throw line. The offensive player will position him or herself at about 30 to 40 feet from the basketball hoop. A chest pass will be delivered from the starting position and immediately after delivering the pass, the offensive player will go in to the triple threat position. Although the basketball drill is set to work on the three point jump shot, it also permits the offensive player to react to any type of defense.
From the triple threat position (pass, shoot or dribble), the player will receive the chest pass back off of the Goalrilla G Trainer. The player will then take a single dribble, head fake to the right and pop up for the three point jump shot. Upon releasing, the player will go in for the rebound and will set the drill back up from the starting position. The next time the chest pass is delivered and the player receives the pass back, they should execute the drill towards the left. This allows the player to work on catching the basketball from the triple threat position. By properly planting the pivot foot (either left or right), this will allow the player to work on the head fake and single dribble both to the left and right side of the court.
While this basketball drill focuses on an individual’s offensive game, the Goalrilla G Trainer also provides coaches the opportunity to work on team drills during a practice session. No matter what basketball skills you are working on, the G Trainer is a versatile piece of equipment that can provide various types of basketball training and skill practice. With this basketball drill, players are going to feel more comfortable taking the open shot and working on a head fake/proper execution. This will result in improving the player’s overall shot effectiveness.
Because of its versatility, the Goalrilla G Trainer is the perfect basketball training tool for any player or coach. With just this one piece of equipment, players can perform hundreds of basketball drills that are sure to improve their game.
