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!


New Direction

Owning and operating a business is no easy task. It comes with ups and downs and lots of hard work. Through the four years I have lead this non profit we have journeyed from Oklahoma City to Los Angeles. Working out of churches and gyms across the cites. When we find an open door to play basketball and minister to students we jump at the opportunity. Listening to God and allowing him to lead me where this ministry needs to go is key.

Recently I have been lead to simplify, and make a conscious decision to lead this ministry into a new season. Training and mentoring will be our focus going forward.

Personal one on one Training allows Flight Ministries to connect with each student on a deeper level. With teaching the game of basketball it involves us in the passion of our students and creates trust and vulnerability. We parter our mentoring skills and start to guide students in the right direction. Every student is different in life and in basketball. We don’t offer a cookie cutter mentor service because if we did the impact would not be genuine. Mentoring through basketball allows Flight Ministries to learn the details of what makes each student unique. In their homes, education, spirituality, social skills and any area where we see growth and guidance is needed.

Flight Ministries has always had the vision of seeing a younger generation being lead in the right direction for successful lives. Partner with us by supporting our ministry and this new direction. Your giving, prayers, and support are a must to make Flight Ministries a reality. Thank you for allowing us to serve the youth in your community!
