Kansas University Basketball Warm Up Drill

The KU drill is something that was introduced to me when I was a freshman in High School and it has stuck with me ever since. Getting up shots is without a doubt the best way to become a better shooter but when you have a method to your madness it becomes more than just shooting the basketball. This drill has brought me more skill as a shooter to all spots on the court, because you can customize it to fit your goals.

First start at the block, right or left, and make three shots in a row. Then move on to the next block, from there on to the hash marks surrounding the lane. After those, the free throw line and then the 5 spots around the three-point line. To challenge yourself make 5 in a row from the free throw line then add spots like the short corner and midrange backboard shot. One fun thing I do to challenge myself is complete the whole drill with every shot off the backboard.

Remember that if you miss you cannot move on, you must complete a perfect 3 in a row. Challenge yourself to swish every shot. Focus on your form, release, and ball spin. This drill will help you to grow as a shooter and warm you up for any kind of basketball outing.

I hope this drill helps your game as much as it has mine. Have a great week and please check out our YouTube Link for video teaching of this drill. Subscribe to our channel and stay tuned to new videos every week.

God bless!


What will you do in 2019?

This year I want it to be my best year yet! I am coming into 2019 with a positive mindset to just be a better version of me. No comparing myself to anyone else. No looking at anyone else and their goals to see if I measure up. This year I will be a better me because I am choosing to see myself though the eyes of God. His grace is bigger then my failures, flaws, and hang ups.

This year I didn’t give myself a resolution sheet filled with unrealistic goals, no I wrote down my vision for the type of man I would like to become. Although I would love to be perfect and not mess up or have bad days that’s the reality of life. Gods word puts it best in:

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

My challenge to you is be the best version of yourself this year. Be true to who you are and remember that you have a God who loves through all the ups and downs in life.

Flight Ministries wants to wish everyone a happy new year, God bless!
