As basketball players, perfecting the ability to make balanced and consistent one-footed shots is an impressive skill. A helpful shooting drill to work on is to begin at the free-throw line. Pull one of the legs up and half squat on another one, then shoot. Whenever possible, try to maintain good form and balance while shooting so that you can build muscle memory that will show up in your game time shots. Aim for scoring five from each foot and repeat several times until you become comfortable with the process; this difficulty level can also be increased if desired by changing the distance or taking off the basketball hoop!
