Mastering basketball drills is an essential part of becoming a successful basketball player, whether you are in youth basketball or advancing to the professional level. A basketball drill that can help improve shooting and layups is the two-step layup with two dribbles drill. Start on the right side of the basket, approximately one step from the elbow. Perform two dribbles with your right foot forward, take two steps forward while continuing to dribble with both hands, and then shoot an overhand lay up off the backboard. Once you've successfully made ten baskets switch sides to practice shooting off your left side. This drill will help boost basketball skills and build confidence in being able to get shots off in crowded driving lanes during a game situation.
