New Drill – created by the master himself Ryan Greenspan.
In this cross-field shooting drill, I added a few elements to make things more difficult for you. In our ever-evolving quest to make individual drills more challenging for the players, we try to mimic game time scenarios as much as possible. As these are individual drills, that makes things a bit tougher, so we have to be inventive. With this drill, you are racing to get your shots off, creating a bit of a stressful scenario.
More times than not you will find yourself fatigued, mentally and physically, during a match. This ultimately leads to missed shots and opportunities. For this drill, we try to imitate this feeling by making you do some sprinting, snap shooting, switching hands, and long distance shooting. We are focusing on your technique and accuracy here. Speed will come with comfortability.
First, you will sprint and pick up your marker, run to your bunker, slide in, snap shoot the tape line bunker, switch hands, and shoot a predetermined cross-field shot within 2-3 seconds of hitting your first snap down the tape. Again, the concept here is to make you feel rushed. This is a move generally made in a match when your back is against the wall and you have to pull off a bit of magic to get your team back in the game. If you have a teammate or friend who can call the cross field shot out to you, this will help to keep you on your toes, but it is not necessary.
