What is a drill I can do to better my shooting form?

Form Shooting Drill

A great way for young players to work on their form is to shoot the ball back and forth to each other. Each youngster should sit in a chair facing each other, then try to shoot to their partner´s head. They can then "shoot" the ball back and forth, trying to hit the target. They can check each other for proper shooting techniques, but there isn´t the pressure of having to put the ball in the basket.

Try to shoot the ball while lying down on the floor. The ball must be flipped straight above your head. Catch the ball and repeat for several minutes. This drill strengthens your wrist and arms, and it adjusts your shot naturally towards the direction you wanted.
