SHARP SHOOTERS - SHOOTING CLINIC

One of basketball’s most valued skills is shooting. Players who can effectively shoot the basketball will always have a spot on the team & be awarded playing-time on the court. Therefore, beginning the creation of an effective shot is vitally important in a player’s development. Learning and executing the fundamentals at a young age gives players an edge over the competition. After acquiring the skills of shooting, players will get even better as they get bigger and stronger.

Players will learn & practice how to:

  • Establish a shooter’s platform from the “TOES to the POSE”.
  • Develop the proper footwork coming off the cut, catch & bounce.
  • Move without the ball to get open & generate shooting opportunities.
  • Create a free-throw ritual to gain consistency.
  • Practice without a hoop to dramatically increase the number of reps.
  • And much more.

Contests & Competitions
Prizes will be awarded to winning participants:

  • Individual Free-throw shooting contest
  • 3-point shooting contest (adjusted for younger players)
  • “Around the World” team shooting Competition
  • Plus-1 Minus-2 Challenge

Each player will receive additional “How-to” drills to practice in their backyard or local gym. Success doesn’t happen by CHANCE. It happens by CHOICE. Make the CHOICE to be an elite level Sharp Shooter.
