To work on basketball shooting and improve balance, it is important to include single leg balance drills in training sessions. These drills involve standing straight on an injured ankle and hitting three points of contact with the ground — namely, the big toe, pinky toe and a heel. By creating an arch and bringing the opposite knee up in about 90 degrees position, basketball players can strengthen their glutes and core for greater stability. All this should be done for at least 30 seconds; if this is too easy, basketball players should close their eyes for even more challenge! With regular practice, basketball players can significantly improve their shooting accuracy.
