Summer 'Shooting' Program
Shooting is considered by many one of the most important if not the most important skill in basketball. Because it is so important it is also the most difficult to learn. Many parents ask us to help their children and take a few minutes and help them with their shot. The issue is that teaching or correcting shooting is not a few minute effort. It takes a great deal of time and effort.
Our summer shooting program helps those players that want to make the commitment to improve and become a better shooter.
During each 90 minute session players will take hundreds of shots. At the beginning of each session we will work on creating for all players a good fundamental form shot.
One a player develops a good fundamental shot they can progress to taking shots off the dribble, off a pass and moving out to the three point line.
So after we finish the fundamental form shot at the beginning of each session we will move players to different stations to advance to the skills mentioned above.
The reality is that many younger players just do not have the strength or size to shoot a good three point shot but we will prepare them for that eventuality.
The 3 Point Shot
The eventual goal of our shooting program is to develop players into good three point shooters but again it is something a player must commit time and patience.
Very few rule changes in sports has had a more profound effect on a sport as much as the “3 Point Shot” in basketball. It has changed offenses and defenses, how coaches approach a game and practices and how players practice.
Regardless of your sons or daughters size or height basketball coaches are looking for players that can step out to the 3 Point line and hit the 3 point shot. The more players on the court that can hit the 3 point shot the more it spreads the defense.
It takes a lot of time, patience and commitment to become a good 3 point shooter. Many players can possibly hit 3 point shots in the gym with no defense but it is different during a game.
The implementation of the 3 point line has: changed the spacing of players, it allows more room for players to drive to the basket, it requires that player help out more from the weak side, it puts more pressure on 1 on 1 defense, it requires a different approach to boxing out because of longer rebounds, it has made the pick and roll more prominent on all levels of basketball, requires that all players become great ball handlers and much more.
