Using the Goalrilla G Trainer, this basketball practice drill is going to work on a reverse pivot/jab step, which will allow a player to free himself up for a three point jump shot. The Goalrilla G Trainer will be set up at about the half court mark. The offensive player is going to start the drill directly below the basketball goal and will work their way up towards the trainer.
To execute the basketball drill properly, players will run towards the Goalrilla G Trainer and will deliver a chest pass (at about the free throw line) to the trainer. Upon releasing the pass, the player will continue to run towards the trainer and will receive the pass somewhere above the three point line. Once receiving the pass from the trainer, players will immediately sweep either to their left or right and will make the quick jab step towards either wing. After taking the jab step (without picking up the pivot foot), the player will take one dribble to the opposite direction and will stop and pop up for the three point jump shot. After taking the shot, the player will go in for the rebound.
This is a great basketball drill. Not only can you learn how to execute a chest pass and receipt, but you can also work on the pivot head fake, jab step and properly planting the pivot foot. It is important to note – with the jab step, players tend to pick up the pivot foot, which means they do not have an additional dribble. With this drill, you will work on executing the jab step without picking up the pivot foot. Once you do this, you are then going to have one more free dribble, where you can work on a head fake and getting the defender to go the opposite direction. This will allow you to free yourself up for an open three point jump shot to the basketball hoop. Although it is a fluid motion drill, players are going to work on creating space, so that they have a more direct basketball shot. With the Goalrilla G Trainer, this basketball drill allows players to focus on many steps, which will result in a higher quality shot from long range.
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.
