If you want a quick and easy aid to help you set up your basketball shooting drills, let me recommend spot markers. Lots of coaches find them an invaluable part of their basketball training equipment.
There isn't a practice goes by that I don't use them.
They're inexpensive, light, and easy to carry in your bag to the gym. And they come in handy any time you need to quickly identify locations on the floor for players to shoot from or line up on.
There is a huge variety to choose from, and they come in many shapes and sizes. The bright, multi-colored basketball shooting spots are a big hit with young kids.
The basketball training spots below come in a variety of sizes ranging from small 5" spots to giant 15" spots. You can typically purchase them in groups of 6 or 12, and you can decide between a variety of colors.
The multi-color sets usually come with 6 different colors, or you can choose sets with a singe color - typically orange, blue, or yellow.
I really like the 9" spots. When I work with really young kids, they love the variety of colors, and it makes it easy to assign each student a different color when trying to position them around the playing area.
When I work with older players, I usually stick with the single color spots.
Numbered spots work great for basketball shooting drills that have players shoot from different spots in a particular order. They are also helpful for identifying different baskets, player lines, team numbers, stations, or positions on the floor.
