8) Shoot at basket from different positions (facing, sideways at right, sideways at left).

9) Shooting at basket: competition with different scores depending on the results (2 points for a basket, 1 point if the basket rim is touched, half point if the backboard is touched). The team which manages to reach a set score first wins.

10) Shooting completion in front of the basket, shooting freely 91 point for each basket). The team which manages to score the most baskets in a certain period of time wins. The completion can be carried out from different distances, sideways to the right, sideways to the left, with or without using the backboard.

12) “21 game”: divide the children into 2 teams and line them up at 2 free throw lines. At the go, the first child in each line shoots (2 point for a basket, otherwise the child must go for the rebound an shoot again, getting 1 point if he score a basket). The second child begins to shoot when the first has either made a basket or used up his two available shots. The team which first scores 21 points wins the game.

13) “The world game”: marks several shooting positions around the area (numbered progressively) and begin the game near the basket. If the child makes the basket move to the different positions (or stops after a mistake). The child who first manages to reach the end at the circle wins. Those who miss have 3 shots from each shooting position and if they miss they can still move on to the next position.
