When basketball players are training for their game, a key element to practice is shooting drills. A great drill to incorporate is the five series drill which consists of two free throws followed by one three pointer, then repeating that cycle five times. The goal of the drill is to make as many buckets as possible with this sequence and if a free throw or three pointer is missed, you need to start that particular series over again. This helps basketball players gain confidence in their shots from both the free throw line and from beyond the arc. As time goes on, they will become more reliable basketball shooters with added practice in this specific basketball shooting drill.
