Mikan Drill Progressions: What is your kids skill level RIGHT NOW?

The Mikan Drill is regarded as the game’s most important skill drill. Identify where your son/daughter is in this progression to determine their level of skill.  This is a college player (over 200X attending Basics) executing both the Mikan and Reverse Mikan correctly.

One minute drill (1:00), count the makes. The player MUST USE both hands independently or the make does NOT COUNT.
