Win it at the Line
Basketball Shooting Game #1
You will shoot from 5 spots around the key: right baseline, right wing, top of key, left wing, left baseline.
The total you can make if you shoot 100% is 30 points.
End the game with a 1&1 free throw. Shoot the first free throw. If you make it, take the second (for a total of 2 points).
The best score you can get if you make every basketball shot and free throw is 32 points.
Basketball Shooting Game #2
Pick a spot on the court and see how many basketball shots you can make in a row without missing. Always keep track of your best record and try to beat it next time.
Move to a new spot and repeat.
Basketball Shooting Game #3
Shoot 2 shots from about 9 feet away (the bottom of the circle), then 2 shots from about 12 feet out, then 2 shots from the free throw line (15 feet). The goal is to make all 6 in a row.
Basketball Shooting Game #4
SHOOTING FOR PERCENTAGE
See what percentage of shots you can make when you shoot a certain number of times.
Start out with 5 shots and see how many you can make. Figure out the percentage (the number of shots you make divided by the total number of shots you take.)
Then try 10, 20, 50, or 100 shots and keep track of the number you make and your shooting percentage.
