What are we doing? Attempting to sink 10 Free Throws from 15 feet away from the basket.
Where should we do it? Driveway, backyard, or sidewalk.
What do we need? Measuring tape, basketball net (mini net, garbage bin, large container), basketball (soccer ball, volleyball etc. or fill a plastic bag up with clothes to make your own ball).
How should we set up? Mark your “Free Throw Line” by measuring 15 feet from your net (or basket etc). If you don’t have a measuring tape take 5 BIG steps.
How do we do it?
1) From your ‘Free Throw Line” throw your “ball” 10 times.
2) Keep track of what happens each time (made a basket, hit the rim, missed).
3) Award the following points to each of your shots:
Made a Basket – 3 points.
Hit the Rim – 1 point.
Missed – 0 points.
4) Add up all of your points- 6 in the basket (18)+ 2 hit the rim (2)+ 2 misses= 20 points. Submit your total score!
